Globe Mission was founded in 1990 in order to facilitate sending missionaries from Germany into world missions. Today Globe mission supports more than 80 missionaries working in around 30 countries.
The vision for Globe Mission was born in 1989 at a nation-wide prayer gathering of Charismatic Christians. Leaders of “Intercession for Germany” („Fürbitte für Deutschland“) had come together to exchange thoughts on world mission.
One leader called for 5,000 new German missionaries to be sent out, unmindful apparently of the fact that at the time no structures were in place to accommodate that many missionaries among the Pentecostal-Charismatic churches in Germany. In response to this challenge, Brad Thurston in 1990 started the missionary sending agency Globe Mission (Globe Europe at the time).
