Network with other Christian professionals and step into the GMC-Africa community as we pursue Kingdom work together.


Inspire sustainable, wholistic transformation in your area of expertise using the skills and connections you develop.

Global Institute

Our Global Institute is a unique space, rather than place, for mutual learning and the exchange of ideas to address the new realities of missions in the 21st century. It will fulfill its purpose and calling through various platforms and vehicles. LIA’s training centers will play an important role, but so will virtual conferences, occasional webinars, and the growing annual Global Missions Conference. The Institute may also host events in the US, UK, or Europe by a partner.

Global Missions Conference-Africa initially began under the name Global Missions Health Conference (GMHC) in Louisville, Kentucky, by Southeast Christian Church. GMHC was birthed out of the desire to equip, connect, and inspire a generation for medical missions. Over the past 20 years, it has been an annual meeting point for over 3,000 Christian missionaries and medical practitioners from around the world.

Life In Abundance International (LIA), in partnership with Southeast and the Christian Medical and Dental Association of Kenya, felt GMHC needed to be replicated in Africa. The first of its kind, the inaugural GMHC-Africa conference was held in 2013 in Nairobi, Kenya to meet an immense need for shared learning and connection for those working tirelessly to affect global health and missions across the continent.

Today, GMC has shifted to wholistically equip Christian professionals, missionaries, students, and church leaders to inspire transformation in their areas of expertise worldwide.
