The gospel is shared using our bilingual Career Development book, The Road to Success. The second aspect of our mission is to train Vietnamese National Partners (Campus Ministers) to conduct Welcome X-Change events (without volunteer teams from the USA).

We travel the very routes the Apostle Paul traveled doing exactly what he did. Proclaim the Gospel! From Istanbul to Nicaea, Pergamum to Ephesus, Haran to Cappadocia, Tarsus to Antioch, Laodicea to Galatia, and everywhere in between we testify that there is only one Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Consequently, there are believers in and around all of these places. What do you need to do? We need believers like you to come over and help. This means YOU will act like a tourist as we visit sites, but we will love on everyone, encourage new believers by sharing personal testimonies, and will testify to the truth of the Gospel to all, both saved and lost. Time is flying, people are dying, eternity looms, and Jesus is coming. If we love people we will tell them about the most important things in our lives. Eternal life, redemption, healing, and God Himself!
The mission of Global Gates is to see gospel transformation of the world’s most unevangelized people groups who have come to global gateway cities, and through them reach their communities around the world. Today, nearly 40 percent of the world’s peoples remain unreached by the gospel (Joshua Project, 2015). Nowhere is there a greater concentration of unreached peoples than in cities. Global Gates is focusing on the unreached in these cities who have been neglected or written off as too difficult to reach. We seek to start churches among peoples who do not have one. And when they do have a church, we want to help them multiply a movement of disciples and churches that will transform their community with the gospel. We are trusting the Lord to bring about disciple-making and church-planting movements among unreached peoples in and through gateway cities. Global Gates is committed to best practices that the Lord is using around the world, seeking His guidance in how best to adapt and implement these methods for reaching unreached peoples in global gateway cities.
