Vision

Every person in Myanmar will have the opportunity to be reached and restored by the love of Jesus.

Mission

In the next five years, a number of organizations are committed to partner together in an effort to impact the nation of Myanmar through strengthening the local church, planting reproducing churches, and making disciples among all people groups and in every sphere and strata of society.

Who We Are

A backbone organization of friends:

∙ serving and supporting the gospel for the transformation of Myanmar;

∙ connecting and networking with as many ministries as possible in Myanmar so we can understand, document and in turn, encourage resources to be brought in to fill in the gaps;

∙ leaning into God’s vision to transform Myanmar through the completion of five goals*.

Who We Are Not

Golden Shores Initiative:

∙ is not a governmental body, nor has separate 501(c)(3) non-profit status;

∙ is not the gatekeeper for all mission activities in the nation. We bless everyone that wants to serve the nation in Jesus’ name.

∙ is not a funding organization for every ministry’s financial needs. Each organization owns this responsibility for what God has called them to do.

Our Five Goals

  1. Proclamation of the gospel to every person in the nation
  2. Engagement of every unreached people group
  3. A church in every neighborhood and village
  4. Everyone having access to the Bible in their own language
  5. Meeting practical needs of the people by every believer living on mission

The vision for Golden Shores Initiative (GSI) came together when ministry leaders and colleagues considered the question: “How can we collaborate to be more effective for the kingdom of God?”

Partner organizations felt the call in 2017 and 2018 to host evangelistic campaigns in several cities in Myanmar. Stories and testimonies were shared about how God was moving in this recently democratized country. After several visits and much prayerful consideration, these same ministry leaders moved forward in obedience to what they felt the Lord had placed on their hearts as well: to see the Kingdom of God come in Myanmar. A five-year commitment was made and Golden Shores Initiative came to be.

While the collective of organizations involved represent a diverse range of denominations, cultures, areas of ministry and expertise, they intentionally put aside their egos and logos to see the church at-large come together around God’s redemptive plan for the nation of Myanmar.
