Irvin Rutherford - Global Ministry Team - GMT began in the heart of Irvin and Linda Rutherford who saw the need for others to answer the call of the Great Commission. The main vision that motivated Irvin and Linda was that a new generation should be empowered and the baton of missionary service passed on. This is being done with Global EvangelismTraining (GET), the equipping arm of GMT based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Led by a younger generation of workers, GMT is poised to be part of the final global harvest of souls using enlisting, empowering and educating to place the next generation of Kingdom workers for Christ's glory in the nations.
