Southern Gables Missionaries: Global Staff

Southern Gables is blessed to provide friendship, personal care, prayer and financial support to a number of missionaries both locally and around the world. These missionaries are in three groups based on their relationship to our church and the degree of support we provide. See the answers to Frequently Asked Questions for more information on how our missionaries are supported. Click on the links below to see more information on our missionaries. As discussed elsewhere, we have three categories of missionaries:

Global Staff Members

Global Staff Members are those members of our congregation who have met the stringent training requirements of our Missionary Candidate Development Program. For many years prior to their appointment, each was deeply involved in the life and ministry of Southern Gables. Each missionary’s choice of a target people group, sending agency, and strategic ministry assignment was made in concert with the leadership of Southern Gables Church. Global Staff Members receive up to half of their annual financial support and enlist daily and regular prayer partners through the Kingdom Connection campaign.
