To use media to reach the people on the English speaking world with the gospel of Jesus Christ and the message of His soon return.
Global/Grenada Family Network (GFN) is a ministry of Gospel Ministries International (GMI). GMI is a faith-based organization with a financial philosophy built on prayer and faith. Through the practice of simply making people aware of needs, and reaching out to God in prayer, GMI has successfully been in operation since 1995.
All GFN missionaries are volunteers, receiving no salary. All volunteers have been directly called by God and have stepped out in faith, taking hold of God’s promises to provide for their every need. “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:19.
God has called GFN Volunteers to the island of Grenada to build and operate radio and TV stations to send out His message of love, mercy and soon return to the people of Grenada, the Caribbean and much of the English speaking world. In September of 2008 we began broadcasting our GFN TV signal via satellite from our Spanish network in Bolivia. Our signal is currently off the air but we are expecting that God’s provision will put us back on the air very soon. On June 2nd, 2009 GFN radio began broadcasting on 91.3 FM in southern Grenada and via the internet at: http://www.globalfamilynetwork.net/site/radio/.
We are currently expanding our presence and ability to create local programming in Grenada by constructing new studios and broadcast facilities for both TV and radio. Furthermore God has provided new equipment that will allow us to broadcast GFN radio over all of Grenada and GFN TV in southern Grenada. This equipment will be installed during the next few months and as soon as construction of our new facilities is complete, we will broadcast GFN radio and TV via satellite. Additionally we plan to begin a lifestyle center and a number of other new ministries aimed at sharing Jesus with as many people in Grenada and the rest of the world as possible.
If you would like to become involved in this project in one way or another, these are some of our needs:
- Monthly support to keep the radio station on the air: $2750 USD per month
- Funds to complete the construction of our studios, broadcast facility and satellite uplink
- Two video editing systems for our new TV station
- A 4X4 pickup to facilitate installation and maintenance of GFN broadcast equipment
- Support of GFN volunteers monthly living expenses
- New volunteers skilled in media production, broadcast, IT, construction, agriculture, and medical missionary services.
