Global Missions Project

Many churches these days are involved with sending their members on short-term mission trips to international locations.  Participants provide much-needed aid to local ministries, and the interaction with missionaries on the field helps believers here to be more aware of the needs overseas.

These types of missions trips are wonderful, but how would you as an instrumental musician like to join with other players to minister in a foreign land?  If so, you need to know about Global Missions Project!

Music is an international language – the language of the heart.  It can be a wonderful tool to draw people to the message of the gospel and to give praise and worship to God.

My first Global Missions Project trip was to Havana, Cuba, in 2008.  It was a life-changing experience for me (see the section of my website called "Music from Cuba"). Seeing the work of God in that country and forming relationships with some of the musicians there will forever be a part of my personal testimony.  Last fall, I had the opportunity to return to Cuba, this time to the eastern part of the island.  Both tours were led by Camp Kirkland, who has been involved with GMP for some 20 years.  Here is a short video to tell you more about the ministry:

You should know that a GMP trip is not a concert tour; rather, it is a mission venture that involves a lot of hard work!  But the blessings of serving and being a testimony for Christ are well worth the effort.  I would recommend a Global Missions Project trip for anyone who is a Christian musician.
