Global Interaction’s passion is to see people around the world receive the gift of a life-changing relationship with Jesus. With deep compassion and cultural sensitivity, Global Interaction exists to empower communities to develop their own distinctive ways of following Jesus. Currently we send 120 long-term cross-cultural workers, to share in people’s lives, to establish and nurture growing, vibrant faith communities among nine least-reached people groups in Africa and Asia. We also send over 200 people each year on short-term mission experiences (Global Xposure trips), and have ongoing relationships to support the growth and development of active churches in Outback Australia, Bangladesh, Hong Kong, India, Lebanon, Vietnam, Papua, Papua New Guinea, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
