The Mission

Making Disciples at the World’s Crossroads

More than half of the planet’s population has migrated to cities.

By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in metropolitan areas.

Global City Mission Initiative

Global City Mission Initiative is a non-profit organization dedicated to cross-cultural evangelism, disciple-making, and church planting among diverse immigrant populations in strategic cities around the world. GCMI is reaching out evangelistically in these globally connected cities to start and multiply churches, to train existing believers to disciple their international neighbors, and to coach churches to better cross cultural barriers in ministering to their communities.

Director of Operations & Communications

As of July 1, I am the new Director of Operations and Communications. This is a new position focused on behind the scenes infrastructure and networking with Churches and global communities. There are some immediate needs that I will be diving into, but ultimately my role will help GCMI grow and expand to reach more people in more cities.

What We Do

Ultimately, we really do 3 things. We train and unleash Mission Catalysts in global cities (NYC, LA, Tampa, Orlando) to plant churches and share the gospel, we mobilize local Christians in those cities, and we come alongside churches to train and equip their members and communities.

Here are some ways you can join us on this adventure:

  • Pray for our family, GCMI, my new role, and our current efforts to raise partners.
  • Join my email list for regular updates and specific ways you can be praying.
  • Partner with us financially. Our target budget is $8000 per month in ongoing support for my salary, HR costs, and ministry budget. (Go to Make sure you select “Marsden” on the form)
