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 provide a platform for multicultural, minority, Indigenous, and Majority World voices.
We help local churches become missional and multicultural.
We design resources and curriculum for theological colleges, especially on World Christianity and multicultural ministry.
We offer invaluable resources to deepen and broaden your understanding of the future of the church.
Whoever you are, wherever you live in the world, these resources are for you.

Why Do We Focus on Majority World, Minority, Immigrant, and Indigenous Voices?
While every statistic available today shows the church in the West is in multi-generational decline, the opposite is true almost everywhere else.
Non-Western cultures are now the Majority World.
The churches of these cultures have seen extraordinary (and sustained) growth for decades. Majority World Christians are Christians in places like Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Oceania and the Caribbean. The Middle East and Eastern Europe. First Nations and Indigenous communities. Finally, immigrant (diaspora) Christian communities are also going through a time of growth and revitalization.
Insights from churches in these cultures can help renew the worldwide church. They can invigorate other Majority World churches, as they learn from each other. And they have the power to invest Western mission, worship, and discipleship strategies with new vibrancy.
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, Moravian Theological Seminary, Pennsylvania
“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.
