As some of you already know, GMI is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Dating back to 1984, Global Mapping International (originally named Global Mapping Project) has been bringing light to decision making and has played a large role in shaping Global Mission over the years through research, mapping, and mission publishing.
In light of our milestone anniversary, we added a new page to our website highlighting ways in which you can celebrate with us this year!
Timeline: Take a historical look at the past 30 years of our ministry and key events that have brought us to where we are today.
30th Anniversary Missiographic: Join us in learning about 5 maps that changed missions and how the maps themselves have changed over the years with new technology and information.
In the Words of Others: See what our founder, our partners, and other missional leaders have to say about GMI and the 30 years of strategic mission and mapping research we have done.
“Global mapping fills a strategic place in the task of world evangelization. We need the kind of global database that GMI can provide.”
- Edward R. Dayton, Vice President, World Vision
Support! Whether it be financially, prayerfully, or in service, we would greatly appreciate your partnership which will allow us to continue to serve the mission community for another 30 years and more.
Special Annual Report: Annual reports can be hard to get through…but not this one. Featuring GMI’s 30 year timeline, 5 maps that heavily influenced Global Mission, retrospective thoughts from the board, and other highlights of GMI’s ministry, this annual report stands out from the crowd with more than just financial information. You pretty much get everything stated above and more, all in a wonderfully created, colorful PDF.
Celebration Events: Who doesn’t like getting dressed up to commemorate an anniversary or milestone? We would love to have you and cordially invite you to attend one of our two 30th Anniversary events. One of which will be in Colorado Springs, CO on November 8th and the other will be in Pasadena, California on November 22. Make sure to RSVP before October 30th!
Thank you for all of your continued support, partnership, service, and love. We couldn’t have done any of this without you, and we look forward to the future!
