Who we are

Focused on inspiring churches and people to have a heart for mission both at home in the UK and abroad

Our Roots

Greater Europe Mission’s involvement in the UK first began with the 2012 Olympic Games in London as a small group of Canadian and American missionaries  spread the gospel to people gathered from across the world. A few years later GEM UK was formed with Birmingham area pastor and British native Andy Hodson taking on the role of director.

Making Disciples Of All Nations

Since then, GEM UK has been focused on inspiring British churches and people to have a heart for missions, both at home and abroad. Not so many years ago, the United Kingdom was a leader in sending missionaries all over the globe. Through training, discipleship, and raising awareness of missions, we hope to once again see people from the UK heading out again to spread the Gospel.

A Local and Global Vision

We also desire to see a revitalisation of the church here in our own country. By developing partnerships with local UK churches and charities, we seek to provide opportunities for missionaries from other parts of the world to be a part of God’s movement in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Our Core Values

Transformation

GEM workers minister to others out of their own ongoing transformation.

We want to see God’s Kingdom expanded through our workers and partners. We know we can best minister to others out of our ongoing and holistic transformation by the Lord. As believers, we are called to represent and demonstrate the values and practices of God’s Kingdom in whatever context we find ourselves find ourselves.

Passion

GEM workers are passionate about seeing the lost saved and disciples multiplied.

We are disciples who make disciples. We desire to be used by the Lord to expand His Kingdom in Europe. We feel an urgency to see the people of Europe meet Jesus and grow in their personal relationship with Him. We expect all of our workers to exhibit diligence, passion, and excellence in their work, living as a worthy example of a gratefully redeemed life.

Humility

GEM workers strive to be humble in attitudes and actions.

Our disposition in GEM is to serve the Body of Christ. We will respect and treat others as we would want to be treated. Humility also characterizes how we relate cross-culturally, taking the initiative to cross cultural bridges to partners, team members, and those we want to reach.

Leadership

GEM leaders intentionally lead, develop, and care for their teammates.

GEM views leadership as equal parts Leading, Developing, and Caring for others. We strive to lead people to fulfill our mission and vision and reach their maximum individual God-given potential. Every member of our organization has an identifiable leader to whom they are accountable. These leaders are deeply committed to seeing their people thrive as individuals, families, and GEM workers.

Community

GEM is a community committed to collaborating with one another, other organizations, and with local believers and churches for the Kingdom.

GEM is a community committed to collaborating with one another, other organizations, and with local believers and churches for the Kingdom.
We care for one another and hold one another to high standards. We believe in team, understanding that teams look different in different places. We eagerly partner with other like-minded individuals and organizations in our fields of service and in our sending countries. Unity does not equal uniformity. We mobilize workers from multiple aspects of Christ’s Church. We encourage innovation, adaptability, and creativity in myriad ways as we accomplish our mission and vision

Stewardship

GEM honors God’s generosity in the people and resources He provides.

God is the great provider. GEM will transparently manage the time, finances, relationships, and responsibilities entrusted to us and our workers. Part of that stewardship is helping our people to discover and maximize their unique contribution to the Kingdom. We ask hard questions and encourage one another to accountability and transparency.

Our Partners

International Gospel Outreach began in 1967 with a group of 7 trustees who felt that the Lord wanted them to join together and form a group that would give mutual support, one to the other. It has continued ever since and is made up of ordained ministers, affiliated ministers, Christian workers and intercessors that are connected across the world and exist to recognise the whole church and reach out to the whole world.

In 1944 GEM’s founder and US Navy Chaplain Bob Evans was injured by a mine in Southern France. During his recovery, he found the majority of locals did not have a personal relationship with Jesus and found his calling: to bring the Gospel to Europe. A band of passionate missionaries, lay-people, and leaders took to Bob’s vision and saw GEM expand from its evangelistic roots in France to reach across Western and Eastern Europe and even North Africa.

Through this legacy, today GEM partners with scores of ministries across Europe: from Bible-seminaries to 1000-year-old churches, from Christian camps to coffee shops, each impacting the peoples of Europe with the authentic and relevant Word of the Gospel.
