Global Baptist Mission Network

What is the Global Baptist Mission Network (GBMN)?

Hosted and facilitated by the BWA, it has been established on the principle of a shared partnership of equals embracing interdependence, collaboration, cooperation, and networking, so as to:

  • facilitate the building of relationships among Baptist mission leaders and movements around the world,
  • provide prophetic thought leadership in the field of mission,
  • assist with the identification of unreached fields and activities needed to reach these fields,
  • encourage collaboration, where possible, between agencies and mission personnel,
  • curtail resource waste and avoid unnecessary duplication, and,
  • enable member and associated organizations to work more effectively.
The Network, made up of leaders of Mission Agencies, Mission Departments of BWA Member Bodies, along with other organizations and professionals working with a focus on the advancement of world mission, will gather annually at its Forum meeting.

Forum Meeting Opportunities

  • relationship building and sharing,
  • discussions and agreement on projects that will be undertaken by and
    for the benefit of the members,
  • thought provoking input,
  • time for sub groups to work on projects.

Projects will be missionally and culturally relevant, financially sustainable, impacting and collaborating, selected and executed in line on the basis of the vision, mission and values of the network. They will be planned, implemented and delivered by subgroups drawn from within the Network membership.
