Global Mission Fellows program is a two-year leadership development and mission service opportunity that allows young adults ages 20 through 30 to take part in mission and social justice ministries in both GMF International (young adults from across the world, serving in another country or placement site around the world) and GMF US-2 (young people from the US, serving within the US). These young adults are trained together and are invited to serve in a ministry of presence and solidarity with a new host community. Married couple are able to serve as GMF, given that both of them apply and get accepted as individuals, and a placement match is available. GMF International deadline is Feb 15, 2016, GMF US-2 deadline is March 31, 2016.

The Core Values of the GT Global Mission Fellows Program

Engage with Local Communities

Connect the Church in Mission

Grow in Personal and Social Holiness


US-2 participants are assigned to work sites in different Affiliates, which are partner entities of Global Ministries, anywhere in the United States where Global Ministries has partnerships.  Some US-2’s are sent alone and others are sent in pairs to work under our affiliate model. The affiliate model allows the US-2 to live in intentional community with members of their cohort while working at various sites that hone their gifts and areas of expertise.  

Since service in the United States allows for flexibility in travel in contrast to GMFs International, US-2s have a unique opportunity to promote the program within their local communities and at various events across the country as designated by Global Ministries.
