Global Horizons is a Christian charity which aims to spread the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the 21st century. It does that through:
- A group of churches working together to advance the Kingdom of God (Lifelink International),
- A group of colleges working together to teach the Word of God
- A group of people working together to demonstrate the compassion of God (humanitarian projects, including Opportunity to HOPE)
Lifelink represents a group of churches across the UK, the USA, and on mainland Europe, with further church relationships into South America, southern Africa, India and China, all of whom have chosen to work together in different ways for the advance of Gods Kingdom.
The Trustees of Global Horizons recognise that God appoints apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers to bless and challenge His church. The apostolic company of these Ephesians 4 ministries is at the heart of Lifelink churches and each church benefits from their oversight.
The training arm of Global Horizons is committed to training people to take the Christian message to the nations in the 21st century. This is made possible by the provision of theological training delivered through a variety of partnerships with the worldwide Church. Global Horizons continues the work begun by Rees Howells at the start of the last century in Wales, who had a vision that every creature needed to hear the gospel. Today, many of the worlds 6.6 billion people have still never heard of Jesus Christ. When He spoke to his first disciples over 2000 years ago, Jesus explained to them that the harvest fields were vast and ready. He urged them to pray that the Lord of the harvest would send labourers into the fields. Global Horizons is committed to training such workers with the necessary skills for the 21st century.
The humanitarian aid and development programmes of Global Horizons are delivered through Opportunity to HOPE (O2H), which funds a variety of different projects, but all aiming to demonstrate Gods compassion to the whole world, especially in areas of extreme need and poverty. The aim of these projects is sustainable development, enabling and empowering people to overcome poverty and deprivation, demonstrating that Global Horizons takes its responsibility to the needy seriously and is involved in several projects worldwide.
