About GMR

Dr. Leon van Rooyen – President of Global Ministries and Relief since its inception has been committed to raising up servant-hearted leaders within the Body of Christ, and from this vision, GMR was born. The overarching vision is to promote a love for God, a loyalty to the Church, and a passion for souls.

In an attempt to further expand the influence of GMR, Dr. Leon has developed and written several Bible training materials and programs which have also been translated into several languages.

Together with a united ministry team, we are resolved to train one million students, not just student but world changers! In addition, to the online schools and programs, GMR has a flourishing prayer ministry and missions thrust where we are engaged in frontline evangelism, planting indigenous viable churches, and strategic relief projects such as supplying safe drinking water. We also assist with micro-businesses/projects, our goal being to see that every work becomes viable and self-sustaining. There are hundreds of areas untouched by the Gospel, and these are the places that you will find Global Ministries and Relief.
