Global Fit

A new avenue in missions

Are you interested in Great Commission ministry but don't fit the traditional missions model? 

Global Fit may be the option you've been looking for. 


Global Fit: a new avenue in missions

The Apostle Paul is the classic example of a missionary: serving full-time to spread the gospel and train believers in the faith. But from the beginning, God has used people like Gaius, Epaphroditus, Phoebe, and others who served in ways unique to their situation. 

Without career missionaries like Paul, missions couldn't endure for the long haul. But people like Paul's companions play a vital role in the Great Commission. By working alongside career missionaries, they enable them to do far more. 

If your burden for Great Commission ministry doesn't match the traditional career missionary model, Global Fit may be the right fit for you.

Find your fit

Think about how Paul's associates contributed to his ministry. Their service looked different in a number of ways. To find your fit, consider four variables for serving in nontraditional missions: 

  1. Length of Service
    Will you serve for a designated period or indefinitely?
  2. Level of Engagement
    Will you serve full-time or serve part-time balanced with a separate career?
  3. Funding
    Will you be self-supported, partially supported, or do you need full support?
  4. Location
    Will you serve on your mission field or from home through internet connectivity? Will your ministry be on a traditional field, in a Creative Access Nation, or in multiple nations?

This new service option opens the door wider on creative fulfillment of Great Commission ministry. It makes missionary service more possible for more people in more places. Consider these examples of how you could serve with Global Fit:

Global Fit: what are my options?

  • Part-Time: A pastor may want to maintain his present ministry but also feel burdened to train nationals on the mission field part-time. Global Fit enables him to do both.
  • Help a missionary: People serving in secular jobs may live near BMM ministries. Being mostly self-funded, they can serve alongside career missionaries but be helped in their service by access to BMM resources. 
  • Church planting and revitalization: Someone burdened to plant or revitalize a specific church in North America wouldn't need permanent support but could benefit from raising funds under BMM's name and through our network of churches.
  • Creative Access Nations: the only way for most missionaries to enter these countries is by offering a business or service. Through Global Fit, they can raise their extra support and have the backing of BMM's experience to navigate the delicate subtleties of serving in these nations.
  • Specialized skills: Is your background in broadcasting, IT, sports training, healthcare, or other specialized skills? You can enhance existing ministries full-time or part-time while using these skills to fund your ministry. 
  • Early retirees: Global Fit offers an excellent option to use the rest of your active years in missions, funded primarily by your retirement savings. 

These are just a few examples—the possibilities are endless!
