2021 Annual

Impact Report

Dear Friends and Co-Laborers,

At Global Frontier Missions, we never grow tired of seeing God display His glory as we mobilize, train, and multiply laborers to the least reached. After 21 years of ministry, we’re still humbled and honored to play a role in preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom “to the whole world as a testimony to all nations,” (Mt. 24:14).

While the pandemic continued to limit travel throughout 2021, GFM saw an increased interest in stateside training as potential missionaries waited for borders to open. We hosted some of our largest missionary training classes, with a total of 37 in-person Missionary Training School students. People from 57 different countries expressed interest in our Online Missionary Training School, with an average of 32 active students each month. With the help of 7 summer interns, we hosted 132 short term missions participants from more than 10 different churches. Missions-minded small groups from all over the United States requested 263 Step In Studies as they explored next steps in response to the Great Commission. Our staff and students shared the gospel with 182 of our unbelieving friends and discipled 91 believers, representing a total of 69 different countries. Last but not least, we added 13 new staff members!

As we turn our attention to 2022, we’re excited to continue using this unique time in history to continue mobilizing and training laborers as many wait for opportunities to go overseas. Meanwhile, we’re eager to build new friendships as we welcome another wave of refugees to Clarkston. While many things remain uncertain about the coming year, we remain confident that God is on His throne and that He is relentlessly pursuing every tribe, tongue, people, and nation.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for the way you’ve partnered with Global Frontier Missions over the past year. As you celebrate these stories from 2021, will you prayerfully consider how you might partner with us in the coming year?
