Global Ministries is committed to a ministry of Critical Presence where we meet God’s people and creation at the point of deepest need: spiritually, physically, emotionally, and/or economically.

But what does it mean?

Critical Presence

Critical means Vital, Essential, Crucial… that which is MOST important.

Presence is Companionship, Alliance… being there… in partnership.

To be critically present, in vital alliances and essential companionship… is to be in partnerships at the point of deepest need – all types of need – spiritual needs, physical needs, emotional needs, and economic needs where we meet God’s people and God’s creation.

Global Ministries has developed Critical Presence Special Giving Opportunities for each area of the world where our ministry takes place (Africa, East Asia/Pacific, Latin America/Caribbean, Middle East/Europe, and Southern Asia).  These special opportunities for giving encompass the priorities that each Global Ministries Area Office has developed, meeting God’s people and creation at the point of deepest need:  physically, spiritually, emotionally and/or economically.
