Our Team. Our History
Initially SMP GLOBAL began serving in the Strategic Focus Cities of the North American Mission Board (NAMB) mobilizing, enlisting, training, and leading volunteers from churces and associations to work alongside church planting missionaries in large cities such as San Juan, Puerto Rico, Seattle, Las Vegas, Miami, New York City, Vancouver, BC, Baltimore, San Diego, and Anchorage, AK.
With a calling and commitment to follow the Acts 1:8 strategy, SMP GLOBAL enlarged their vision and strategy to include the strategies of the International Mission Board (IMB) missionaries around the world as well. The SMP GLOBAL international ministry includes ministries in China, Ukraine, Peru, Central Asia, Panama, Canada, Mexico, St. Lucia, Israel, Hong kong, Romania, and Zambia. SMP GLOBAL's plan and vision is to follow and assist in the implementation of the IMB strategies in the countries where they are serving in oder to fulfill evangelism, strengthening and multiplication ministries that lead to church planting movements.
SMP GLOBAL's vision is to follow the Great Commission and work alongside NAMB and IMB missionaries to do God's will in preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
SMP GLOBAL is an international mission ministry that is supported by an advisory board of pastors, ministers, businessmen and women who believe in, pray for and support SMP GLOBAL in this most important strategic Christian mission ministry.
