Global Mission Partners

Australian Churches of Christ Global Mission Partners (GMP) is a Christian mission organisation committed to facilitating life-changing partnerships.

GMP understands that mission must work with what God is doing and in partnership with local people. This means we focus on partnerships with churches and agencies overseas, linking them with partners in Australia. We do most of our work overseas through local indigenous Church of Christ organisations. They know the culture and the opportunities better than us and have long-term relationships across their country. We come alongside them to learn from them and contribute the gifts that we have. In countries where there is no local partner with the ability to manage projects, GMP operates as an entity in its own right, working with local people toward the day when the ministry is truly theirs.

GMP operates in three areas:

(i) Indigenous Ministries Australia (IMA), which encourages new directions with Indigenous Christian Ministries by concentrating on priority areas such as strengthening Indigenous churches and culture;

(ii) Community Development through Churches of Christ Overseas Aid (COCOA), which conducts relief and development projects across the world with local partners. COCOA has tax deductibility under the Overseas Aid Gift Deduction Scheme (OAGDS);

(iii) International Church Partnerships (ICP), which conducts evangelism, church planting and ministry training projects across the world with local partners.
