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 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.
