The mission of Gospelink is to connect the church globally for the purpose of gospel ministry. We diligently seek out national Christian leaders who are actively involved in local church ministry; we then locate churches and individuals who would like to work alongside them. We want to leverage the potential of the global church by providing the link between the national leader and their ministry partners.


God has always used the church to carry out his mission in the world, and the Bible is foundational to that mission. That’s why Wycliffe is committed to seeing the Bible translated for every language that needs it. And we fundamentally believe that as churches join in this mission together, we can reach every language in our lifetime.
