Today Gospel Fellowship Association missionaries are planting churches on six continents. Because GFA missionaries are committed to indigenous principles, they are always seeking ways to transfer the ministry of the local church into the hands of responsible nationals. On many fields missionaries have begun Bible schools to train national pastors and workers. In addition, some GFA missionaries are incorporating medical missions and missionary aviation in their church-planting outreaches. The GFA short-term missionary program is also strengthening the hands of our career missionaries. Many short-termers have themselves been called to career missions. Several GFA career missionaries are mentoring the next generation of laborers through GFA’s Strategic Internship Program and Teens in Missions. GFA's tentmaking program directs committed Christian professionals to work and ministry on foreign fields.
