Mission connects

GZB wants to contribute to the formation and development of open congregations that live out their missional calling and, therefore, have a witnessing presence in society. At the same time they express their diaconal vocation by reaching out to people in the margins.

We build on this vision through 4-year programmes in a country or region with a clear goal. A variety of actors are involved who share this common desire, such as local congregations abroad and in the Netherlands, mission workers, office staff and experts. 

The GZB works in the following areas:

  • Youth work
  • Diaconate
  • Medical care
  • Capacity building
  • Disaster relief
  • Evangelism and church planting
  • Bible translation and distribution
  • Education and income-generating projects
  • Theological education (including seminaries, Bible colleges, TEE and discipleship & leadership training)

Together, as God's colourful church, we share that the Gospel is for everyone!
