WORLD WATCH LIST
No one can reach Muslims more quickly and effectively than one who has been transformed by Christ, understands the culture, and knows the language. GCM’s unique ministry is carried out entirely by nationals and former Muslims—some of whom even were terrorists. All are passionate about bringing the Gospel to their fellow countrymen and do so at great personal cost and risk.
Open Doors’ “World Watch List” ranks countries according to as most oppressive and persecuted in the world, these are the countries we are in. Terrorism is sanctioned by local civil and/or religious authorities. For GCM leaders, danger is ever-present. When they leave on daily evangelism outreaches, they face the possibility of never again seeing their loved ones.
THEY RISK THEIR LIFE EVERY DAY OUT OF DEVOTION TO THE LORD.
God has been preparing the hearts of Muslims to be receptive to the Prince of Peace, and He is blessing GCM’s ministry with abundant fruit. In 2017 alone, GCM teams conducted purposeful conversations with more than 6,400 Muslims,—engaging an average of 540 Muslims each month. In that same period, GCM baptized 83 new believers and planted 19 new underground churches. We have launched two new churches in just the first quarter of 2018 as well!
In one restricted-access country alone, God has brought to Himself more than 4,000 Christians throughout 90 cities. They gather for worship and in-depth Bible studies in almost 500 underground house-churches. That country is playing a unique role in God’s plan of salvation, and GCM sees it as a sending nation that, within a few years, will make a profound impact for Christ throughout the entire region. GCM’s core strategy is so effective that GCM now trains other missionary groups, at their request.
