Micah and Nancy Smith founded Global Gateway Network as a non-profit, Christian-humanitarian organization in 2002, however, each one of our team members have more than 25 years of experience working and traveling internationally. With focus and intention, we connect the skills and gifts of  team members with the identified needs of hurting people by looking for ways and means to gain a voice for Christ. Part of the success of GGN can be attributed to the volunteer leadership team and mission trip team members who have selflessly given of their time, money, and materials to reach unreached people groups in remote areas of the world.

Making life better continues to be our historical legacy that anchors our present and future destiny as an organization. Since our birth we have sent more than 30 teams to a dozen nations.

GGN is a global team effort, working to fulfill Jesus’ mission. We partner with almost 100 volunteers in diverse corners of the world—including friends, family members, and visionary leaders in bringing hope to the hurting and gaining a voice for the voiceless. Our volunteer teams are highly committed to our vision of making life better. These volunteers pay their own expenses, raise funds for projects and gladly welcome others with this passion to join our growing team.

Thank you for praying and partnering with GGN. Here are some highlights of what we have been able to accomplish together with God's help:
