About us: A Christian Non-Profit Mission Organization

Glocal Mission is a Christian, non-profit organization based in Houston, TX.  We’re multi-ethnic followers of Jesus who are committed to leading everyone, everywhere, every day into God’s mission of seeking the lost, discipling the found, and multiplying disciple-makers and churches with the caring love of Christ, locally and globally

The Term GLOCAL /ˈɡlōk(ə)l/ is not a typo but a fusion of the words "global" and "local". The term glocal reflects and is characterized by both local and global considerations. It’s not a global or local mission. It’s not an overseas or domestic mission. It’s BOTH a global AND local mission. Our God is a Glocal Missionary God for a Glocal Mission field. Remember: You’re either a mission field or a missionary by vocation.

Glocal Mission equips and mobilizes people to become everyday disciple-making missionaries by vocation in their own backyard and beyond (GloCally) to make an eternal difference in their community, for their community, and with their community.

Vision Statement: We want to see more lost people being saved with the gospel, more hurting people's needs met holistically, more gospel-centered and great commission-driven disciple-makers and churches multiplied from every nation, tribe, language, and people groups to God's glory and for the common good! (cf. Rev. 5:9; 7:9)

Core Values:

  • There Exists Only Two Kinds of People - Those who are a Mission Field or a Missionary (Ekklesia="sent ones" who have a missional vocation and purpose). Those who are perishing or those who are being saved. Lost or Saved. (1 Cor. 1:18; 1 P. 2:7; 2 Cor. 4:3-4; 2:12; 3:14) "Every heart without Christ is a mission field and every heart with Christ is a missionary by vocation." -Rev. Dr. David Kim

  • Eternity Matters: Lost people matter to God and matter to us. (Ezek. 34:16, Matt. 28:18-20; 24:14; Luke 15:40, Luke 19:10, Acts 1:8)

  • Multiplication –We believe in healthy disciples and churches that multiply (Deut. 1:11; Gen. 13:16; Gen. 22:17; Acts 6:7)

  • Holistic Ministry & Discipleship– We believe in ministry, outreach, and discipleship to the whole person and for the common good of the whole community. (Deut. 14:29; Lev. 25:39-50; Ex21:1-6; Matt. 9:35-38; Matt. 25:40- 45)

  • Missional Stewardship – Our Talent, Time, and Treasure are God’s, therefore, they are to be managed wisely and invested generously for the sake of the Gospel and for the common good. (2 S. 24:24; 1 Chron. 29:1-19; Mal. 3:6-10; Matt. 6:19-21; Matt. 14:13-21; Lk. 12:13-21, 48; Lk. 16:1-13; 1 Cor. 4:1-2; Gal. 5:22-23; Eph. 3:1-21)

  • Servant Leadership - Leading by serving, serving by leading. (Jn. 13:1-7; Matt. 20:25-28; Mark 8:33-38; Phil. 1:2, 25-30)

  • Relationships – We believe ministry is most fruitful when done through grace-centered relationships. (Col. 3:18-4:6; Rom. 12:9-21)

  • Accountability – We are accountable to God and to His people, for the gifts He’s given us and the ministry He’s called us to do. (Luke 10:17-20; 2 Kg. 5:15-17; Amos. 3;1-2; Acts 14:26-2; 2 Cor. 8:21)

  • Living Coram Deo – Living our entire life before God, under the authority of God, to the pleasure and glory of God alone. Therefore, whatever we are doing, wherever we are doing it, and however we do it, we are acting under the gaze of God. (Ps. 51:9-12; Dt. 31:16-18; Ps. 27:9-10; Lk. 22:61-62; 2 Cor. 4:14)

  • Prayer – When we kneel down God is at work. However, prayer does not eliminate our need to plan and act. (Neh. 2:4; 2 Kgs. Ex. 32:9-14; Ex. 14:15; Gn. 18: 20-33; Phil. 4:6- 7; 1 Chron. 4:9-10; 2 Chron. 20:1ff; 1 John 5:14-15, 1 Tim. 2:2; Col. 1:9-14; Acts 4:24- 30; John 17:1ff; Lk. 10:2; 18:1; Mk. 9:29; Ps. 122:6-9)

  • 4 Self Church Planting Principles - Churches that are self-sustaining, self-governing, self-propagating and self-theologizing (theology in lower case differing from Theology in capital letter. ex: Doctrine of Trinity falls into the category of Theology while the time of day for worship falls into category theology). (Acts 14:21; 16:5; 8:4, 15:21; 19:9-10)

  • Ethnic Diversity – We believe that God loves all people and commands us to reach all people regardless of race, color, and language. We understand the linguistic and cultural differences and diverse spiritual giftedness but these must not be the barriers but blessings and edification of people for the sake of the gospel and for the common good. (1 Cor. 12; Rom. 12; Eph. 4:11-16; Rev. 7:9; Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)

  • Indigenous Ministry – We are committed to working through local harvest workers and leaders that God has placed in their community for their community and with their community. Local leaders are those that best understand the means, manner, and methods that communicate truth within the context of their culture without compromising the Gospel. (1 Cor. 9:19-23; John. 20:21,22; 1 Ts. 1:5-8; 2 Tim. 2:1-3)

  • Team Ministry – The Great Commission is too big for anyone to accomplish alone and too important not to try to do it together. (taken from Missio Nexus) (Rom. 12:3-8; Eccl. 4:12; 1 Cor. 12:12-31; 1 Cor. 10:24; Mark 2:14-17; Eph. 4:1-8)
