About The GlobalChurch Project
Our mission is to help local Christians and churches, learn from diverse, multiethnic, and global voices and trends, so that they experience renewed mission and revitalized churches.
The GlobalChurch Project invites often unheard voices from around the world to enter into a powerful global conversation about the shape of church and mission in the 21st century.
We invite the local and global church to listen to the voices of Christians in “the Majority World.” Majority World Christians are Christians in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Oceania, the Caribbean, First Nations, Aboriginal and Indigenous peoples, and immigrant (diaspora) communities. Insights from Christians in these cultures can help renew the worldwide church. They have the power to invest our local and global mission, worship, and discipleship with new vibrancy.
Graham Hill is the Founding Director of The GlobalChurch Project. Graham has written 6 books. His latest three books are “GlobalChurch: Reshaping Our Conversations, Renewing Our Mission, Revitalizing Our Churches” (InterVarsity Press, 2016), “Salt, Light, and a City, Second Edition: Ecclesiology for the Global Missional Community: Volume 1, Western Voices” (Cascade, 2017), and a co-authored book with Grace Ji-Sun Kim called “Healing Our Broken Humanity: Practices for Revitalizing the Church and Renewing the World” (InterVarsity Press, 2018). Graham has been in Christian ministry since 1987. He is a seasoned church planter, pastor, college professor, and church consultant. Graham did his Ph.D. at Flinders University in Australia. He is a regular keynote speaker at conferences, churches, and colleges. Graham is passionate about World Christianity, cultural intelligence, leadership, mission, and church revitalization. This passion comes from 30 years of ministry. Graham researches, films, and writes about trends and shifts in World Christianity. He travels all over the globe for The GlobalChurch Project, interviewing and filming Christian leaders and communities.

What People Are Saying About Us
“I don’t know of any other source that provides as comprehensive a picture of the global church-in-mission as the Global Church Project. The diversity of voices represented here demonstrates the complexity and yet unity of the Body of Christ around the world.” Al Tizon, Executive Minister of Serve Globally, Evangelical Covenant Church, Chicago
“Graham Hill’s GlobalChurch Project invites often unheard voices from around the world to enter into a powerful conversation about the shape of integral mission in the 21st Century. It is an invaluable resource for depending and broadening our understanding of the very future of the church.” Michael Frost, Author, and Vice Principal of Morling College, Sydney
“As the church moves to the Global South, it becomes ever increasingly important to hear the voices from around the world. Graham Hill is able to help us do that by putting together The GlobalChurch Project, which showcases voices from around the globe. Voices from diverse female and male leaders and scholars provide insight and stir our curiosity. These are important interviews which can be used in universities, seminaries, churches and study groups.” Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Associate Professor of Theology, Earlham School of Religion
“The GlobalChurch Project is a unique, one-of-a-kind gift to Christianity and to the world in the 21st century. It isn’t just any international project or collection of interesting talks and resources. Rather, because it was dreamed of, birthed and carried out globally with a particular focus on voices that are too often kept silent, it offers all of us new lenses through which to think, pray and practice church. Fundamentally, it is about the ever-changing new work that God’s Spirit is doing in and through the church, in ever new and often challenging ways.” Rosalee Velloso Ewell, Executive Director of the Theological Commission for the World Evangelical Alliance
“Under God, the church of Jesus Christ has become a global reality, with many thousands of local congregations rooted in their own context and developing ministries that reflect their culture. The GlobalChurch Project is a wonderful means to enable churches to learn from one another and to have a taste of God’s end-time community of men and women “from every tribe and language and people and nation”. I wholeheartedly recommend it.” René Padilla, Former International Director of TearFund.
