Who is Global Gates?

We are an evangelical missions organization mobilizing prayer and missionaries for the most unreached people group communities in North America.

Our core mission 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.

What Drives Us

Global Gates desires to see a multitude that no one can count, "from every nation, tribe, people, and language," rejoicing with God in heaven (Rev 7:9). Many people groups, however, are still unreached with the gospel, lacking churches to spread the hope of Christ within their communities. But God is doing something new! Unreached people from areas with little access to the gospel are moving to cities with Christian populations. Technology allows them to not only stay connected, but also to deeply influence their families and friends back home. Global Gates is driven to spread the hope of Christ through these dynamic opportunities.

“For perhaps the first time in history, the flood of immigrants in the United States has given us an opportunity to fulfill the Great Commission in our own backyard. We at The Summit Church have been delighted to partner with Global Gates to strategically proclaim the gospel among unreached people groups and we will continue leaning on our friends and ministry partners at Global Gates because they understand the need for reaching the unreached as they stream toward us.”

J.D. Greear – Pastor, The Summit Church, Durham, NC

“Want to reach the world? Start in your own neighborhood. Global Gates is the most significant ministry to show you how.”

Todd Ahrend – Founder, The Traveling Team
Author of In This Generation and The Abrahamic Revolution

“I have known the leadership of Global Gates for many years and greatly appreciate their Kingdom labors. They do an excellent job drawing attention to the unreached people groups in North America and challenging evangelicals to make disciples and plant churches among them. Whenever someone asks me who is doing the best job in North America among unreached people groups, my immediate response is Global Gates!”

J.D. Payne – Pastor of Christian Ministry, Samford University

“Global Gates occupies a strategic role in the fulfillment of the Great Commission today. No one else so boldly and effectively takes the gospel to the world’s least reached peoples who now live and grow in North America’s urban centers. Global Gates represents the cutting edge and future of the Great Commission.”

David Garrison - Author of Church Planting Movements and A Wind in the House of Islam: How God is Drawing Muslims to Faith Around the World to Faith in Jesus Christ

“I am very impressed with the work Global Gates is doing to reach non-Christian immigrants coming to our country from some of the most unreached areas of the world. If you want to support a growing ministry with an effective church planting ministry among unreached immigrants in the U.S., you should seriously consider Global Gates.”

Vance Nordman, The JESUS Film Project

“God is greatly using Global Gates to reach the nations for Jesus Christ!”

Ying Kai - Author of Ying and Grace Kai’s Training for Trainers

“The heart, passion, and sacrificial efforts of the Global Gates team to find and reach precious diaspora peoples is something to behold. I’m convinced this work is one of the most, if not the most, strategic efforts in America today for mobilizing God’s people to reach diaspora peoples in our cities and to see many from these same peoples taking the Good News back to their homelands.”

Dave Imboden – National Representative for the Table Coalition

“When it comes to reaching unreached peoples with the Gospel in urban North America – the folks at Global Gates are the experts. They are knowledgeable, passionate, innovative and strategic. Global Gates is a tremendous missiological asset for any church attempting to reach unreached peoples in the urban context. Global Gates = great kingdom partners! ”

Chuck Register – Director, Missions Catalysts Group, Baptist State Convention of North Carolina

“Global Gates is doing cutting edge work and producing wonderful resources for Unreached Peoples. I fully expect the Lord to continue to use the Global Gates team in powerful ways as this movement develops. Join with the Mission America Coalition in prayer and support of their work of Gospel transformation in our cities.”

Brian Considine – Director, Child Evangelism Fellowship of Dallas, TX
