Faq's

We are looking for those who have a definite call upon their lives to go to the most unreached areas for evangelism and church planting. It is not a job. A hireling quits when the going gets tough. Our commitment is to train and send out men and women who seek only God's approval and God's glory-those who will not be bought with money or seek their own, but are committed to the work of the Lord.

They must also be people of integrity in the area of commitment to the Word of God and correct doctrine, willing to obey the Scripture in all matters without question. They must maintain a testimony above reproach, both in their walks with the Lord and also with their families. We look for those who are willing to work hard to reach the lost in and around the mission fields where they are placed. Each missionary is also a shepherd of the flock that the Lord raises up. He will protect these new believers and lead them into maturity in Christ, through teaching God's Word and equipping them to win the lost in these regions.

To whom are native missionary evangelists accountable?
We take several steps to ensure that our accountability systems work without failure. In each area, the missionaries meet at least once a month for a few days of fasting and prayer and sharing together as they build the kingdom in their part of the field. In all cases, native missionaries are supervised by local indigenous elder missionary under whom they work. In turn these field leaders spend much time meeting with godly senior leaders. The leaders who oversee the ministry are men of integrity and have had a good testimony in life and ministry for many years.

Are the financial records of native missionaries audited on the field?
Yes, financial records are inspected by our field administrative offices to ensure that funds are used according to the purposes intended. A detailed accounting in writing is required for projects such as village crusades, training conferences and special programs. Missionary support funds are signed for and received both by the leaders and the missionaries involved, and these receipts are checked. All financial records on the field are also audited annually by independent certified public accountants.

How are native missionary evangelists trained?
GLIM currently has one missionary training school that trains missionaries. This Bible teaching ministry was started on April 2009. We currently have about 10 men and women of God under training. Their training involves one 5 hours days in classroom a week, and two days of door to door evangelism with the training pastor. By the time they complete the program, the students should have started many house churches.

This program is design to last for 5 months. During the last two months of the program, they will spend most of their time on the mission field and less in the classroom. Upon completion of the program, they will be sent out to other villages to minister the gospel.

As they continue to grow and minister to others, they will be required to periodically come back for further training to equip them for their work. Preaching the gospel is part of their responsibilities, and making a disciple out of them is another. Besides the periodic training, we will also provide them with materials to aid the furtherance of their work.

Besides evangelism, is GLIM also a church-planting organization?
The current focus is to train the missionaries and send them to minister to the unreached and make disciples of them for Christ. The process of making disciple usually entails consistent teaching and praying with the new believers. This kind of interaction will usually result to a local church (cell group).

Methods used by native missionaries?
Poster, films, radio, television and video are very useful for the work. However, the most effective methods are still those that were used in the New Testament.

Currently, the most common way to proclaim the Gospel is by way of face-to- face street evangelism. Given that some of these villages are very far off, we intend to equip the missionaries with bicycles to aid their movement.

Evangelists sometimes organize witnessing meetings where they use films, flip charts, and other visual aids to communicate the Gospel since most of the natives can not read or write.

These types of communication tools are available at low cost and can be purchased locally without import duties. In addition, native evangelists are familiar with them, and they do not shock the culture.
