2012 Global Gates Volunteer Opportunities

Global Gates is a new mission organization formed to reach unreached peoples in cities—starting in Metro New York. The vision of Global Gates is the gathered of the world in cities spreading the light of the world to nations. The mission of Global Gates is to restore a broken world through ministry, missions mobilization, training, and church planting movements among unreached peoples in our cities.

Evangelism among South Asian Peoples.  Volunteers will come to New York and be trained in meeting people on the street, sharing their testimony and the gospel with them, and being able to tell if the person is a person of peace.  This is a very strategic role that you will play as we sift through many people in the city to find those the Holy Spirit is at work in.  These ‘Sifting Weeks’ are very strategic as we seek to bring the gospel to South Asian peoples here in the city.

Material Distribution.  Help us saturate Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist areas of the city with gospel literature.  Some will come to NYC to hand out materials.  Others can mobilize their churches back home to do a mail saturation campaign, as we seek to get truth into the homes.  Each piece of literature will have a contact number where seekers can reach field personnel.

Engage West African Muslims with the Gospel on the streets of Harlem and the Bronx. Volunteers will set up tables and/or walk the major streets of Harlem/Bronx and distribute Bible stories on CD, Jesus Film DVDs, and literature in native African languages. West African Muslims love to hear the Words of God, and the interaction on the streets provides a great opportunity to share the gospel and develop new relationships. Volunteers will need to have a strong emphasis on praying for the people around them, and will also be encouraged to prayerwalk around the neighborhood and interact with Africans in their stores, restaurants, etc.....all in the heart of North America's "Little Africa."

Prayer Coordinator for Unreached Peoples-  The Metro New York Unreached Peoples Prayer Coordinator will focus on mobilizing Christians in Metro New York and beyond to pray for unreached peoples located in Metro New York by disseminating information and resources, leading prayer groups, and starting initiatives to focus more prayer on the unreached.

Express His Love to Near Eastern Muslims- Commute to nearby Paterson, NJ and spend time in "Little Ramallah" seeking out Arab and Turkish Muslims whom God is beckoning to Himself among numerous, ethnic shops and restaurants. Learn about Muslim Americans and how to better share the good news of Jesus Christ with them. Distribute Christian films and literature to disseminate the Gospel throughout this unreached and isolated community, and help us to spread the word about the new Arab Friendship Center. Join us in prayer as we entreat the Lord to bring salvation to Arabs and Turks.

Costs of volunteer trips will vary depending on airfare, length of stay, and the project you are doing.  However, the following will give you an idea of costs.
Lodging:      $35/person per night
Food:        $25/person per day
