GZB supports local churches and Christian organizations across the globe to be a living and witnessing community of faith, that shares the Gospel in word and deed. GZB sends out mission workers at the request of the partner or in new opportunity situations, if GZB has suitable and qualified candidates.
GZB sends out professionals (long-term, 4+ years), young professionals (1-2 years) and short-term volunteers (6-12 months).
Moreover, GZB provides financial project support to our partners, also in situations where there is no mission worker involved. GZB works in the following areas:
- Evangelism and church planting
- Theological education (including seminaries, Bible colleges, TEE and discipleship & leadership training)
- Bible translation and distribution
- Youth work
- Medical care
- Education and income-generating projects
- Capacity building
- Disaster relief
GZB works in 26 different countries (in Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East and Latin America) and has commissioned 58 mission workers worldwide (sometimes in cooperation with other organizations, like OMF and Wycliffe).
Congregations in the Netherlands support this ministry through prayer, mission workers and finances. Around 350 congregations are supporting the work of GZB.
