NGO Overview, Mission, and Purpose: What We Are About and Who We Help

Mission Statement: Our heartbeat is to provoke a young generation to passionately pursue Jesus Christ and to take His life giving message to the ends of the earth!

The goal of Global Expeditions International is to minister to both national and international communities and peoples through year-round mission trips to 79 locations and over 69 countries around the world. Our organization aims to not only shed the light of Christianity to the desolate people of the world, but also to bring together and rehabilitate communities, to educate societies and give them tools to prosper, and to be an example of the Love and Compassion of Jesus Christ. Primarily focusing on teenagers leading the missions, this organization allows these young adults to open their eyes and hearts to the world around them, giving them a newfound passion and appreciation for culture and their faith.

NGO "Bottom Line": How Me Make an Impact

We exemplify the love of Jesus and show the people of the world how to live a life of hope, justice, integrity, and compassion through mission trips spearheaded by teams of teenagers. The teams interact with the people face to face, teaching morality and being examples of our three-fold focus of training all people in the gospel, impacting the local culture with the message of Jesus the Christ, and giving the missionaries experiences that will forever change their lives. In the past 27 years, over 1.3 million souls have heard the good news of the gospel and accepted Christ into their lives, just by this organization alone. Through teaching Jesus' word, doing HIV/AIDS prevention workshops, working with orphaned children in war-torn countries, community building, and much more, Global Expeditions has changed millions of lives, whether it be through salvation or just planting a seed of hope in otherwise hopeless situations.
