About Global Opportunities
Global Opportunities Global Opportunities About Global Opportunities Our Mission To help the church to understand and engage the Biblical model of tentmaking by sending committed, everyday, workplace Christians as mission workers, and to mobilize and equip these Christians to serve abroad as effective tentmakers, primarily to least-reached peoples. Global Opportunities: Educates about and promotes tentmaking through its website, writing, speaking, tentmaking seminars, and advertising. Assists churches in developing tentmaking and sending tentmakers. Provides training materials to equip tentmakers. Publishes GO World, a free mini-journal and Tentmaking Briefs, a free enewsletter on tentmaking to teach, motivate, and equip for effective ministry. Provides training for tentmaker effectiveness through courses. Mentors and coaches tentmakers to help them succeed and be effective. Connects tentmakers with colleagues on the field for team support and accountability, whenever possible. Note: No tentmaker becomes a GO missionary. Tentmakers merely commit to Global Opportunities on a personal, fellowship basis, not on any legal or employment basis. They are fully self-supporting if at all possible, though sometimes require supplemental support. We counsel them to partner with the other missions workers and agencies and with the indigenous church. All tentmakers must be a members in good standing in a local sending church. Statement of Faith The unique divine inspiration, entire trustworthiness, and authority of the Bible. The deity of our Lord Jesus Christ. The necessity and efficacy of the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ for the redemption of the world, and the historic fact of His bodily resurrection. The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration. The expectation of the personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
