Discipling Nations Initiative

Global Mission Awareness currently works with religious and political leaders in most countries but is currently focused on Pakistan, Cuba and the Philippines. The Discipling Nations Initiative seeks to connect and resource leaders by organizing interfaith conferences and providing digital and printed curriculum. This year, GMA will continue to champion peace by empowering interfaith leaders to support one another and by supporting the local church.

Together with Marqus and Yasmin Fida, GMA Pakistan equips and empowers individual believers and churches. Through formal education, students have the opportunity to graduate with an associate, bachelor's, or master's degree in ministry, biblical studies, or music. These students are equipped to plant and lead new churches, have greater influence in their communities, and have access to better societal opportunities. GMA Pakistan partners with strategic national Interfaith, Peace, and Harmony gatherings to influence next generation leaders through collaborative efforts toward personal and community transformation and peace initiatives.

Over the years, we have been involved in crisis relief programs for victims of earthquakes and flooding, and for refugees by providing for basic and spiritual needs. We come alongside those who experience religious persecution through community support, and strategic collaborations with local leaders to stop violence against Christian believers and othe

Our Cuba team operates in family. Everyone is welcomed into community where they feel safe, loved, and accepted. Through the ministry, basic needs are met and individuals receive job training and learn how to run businesses. They have the opportunity to rise from poverty into royalty as sons and daughters of God. These individuals will be trained, equipped and sent to different spheres of society and to empower the next generation. Currently, there are 187 Lighthouses of Love in Cuba where the Gospel is being preached on every street corner. We are committed to establishing 1,000 new Lighthouses of Love by 2027. Help us to transform the nation of Cuba by educating and equipping Kingdom leaders!
