R. G.

Empowering the Poor

Having witnessed firsthand the destruction caused by war and its aftermath on several continents, as well as the hopelessness and violence found in the world's slums and shantytowns, RG has committed his life to obeying Jesus’ Great Commandments to love God and neighbor, while simultaneously obeying Jesus' Great Commission to make Disciples of Jesus among every Ethne/People Group. He has seen people and communities transformed by the hope, healing, and reconciliation of Jesus Christ. Adopting an approach that seeks to address the whole person—body, mind, and sprit—RG is involved in serving broken communities in practical ways that affirm the dignity and potential of local people, avoiding dependence on outsiders.

RG seeks John 17 Kingdom unity and partnerships to pursue Best Biblical Practices in the development of improved models of Community Health/Development integrated with Disciple Making Movements, utilizing Bible Storytelling and Contextual Communication in ways that prove more effective, comprehensive, and reproducible. To achieve this goal, he is involved in training, mobilizing, and networking, with a desire to encourage individuals and organizations from diverse and often disconnected areas of expertise to collaborate to achieve common goals--primarily global Kingdom breakthroughs among the least reached and least served, via exponential multiplication of local "Wholistic" Disciples of Jesus who are equipped to teach others to teach others how to obey Jesus in word and in actions.
