MDSI and Installation Ceremony

Join Us Celebrating a new phase of ministry

Join us in Celebrating a New Phase of GMI's Ministry

GMI has faithfully served the global mission community for 30 years. Through a diverse set of resources, services and programs we have focused on helping Kingdom leaders make Spirit-led decisions.

 

On January 22nd GMI will celebrate a new season of ministry as we recognize our new President/CEO, Jon Hirst, and share our vision for the future. We are asking those of you who have walked alongside GMI in the past, as well as new friends who are just now connecting, to join us on the 22nd to celebrate what God is doing through mission-focused research and mapping across the globe.

 

Our hope is to make January 22nd a day to resource you as a Kingdom leader and to expand your vision for the importance of making Spirit-led decisions.

One Day, Two Special Events

Decision Support Briefing & Ideation Session:

Join us for a brief presentation of new findings about decision making for ministry, based on interviews with dozens of leaders in global outreach. This will lead into an interactive session exploring "test concepts" for new resources. You will receive insights into ministry decision making as you join us in creating next-generation resources for leaders.

 

This event will take place at the 225 Coffee Shop in downtown Colorado Springs on the 1st Presbyterian Church campus (Click here for a map) on Jan 22, 2013 from 2:00-4:00 p.m. An executive summary of our Decision Support Briefing, along with refreshments, will be provided.
