GMI is an international team of evangelical research, GIS and IT professionals passionate about informing, equipping, and connecting the Church for more appropriate and effective mission.
Founded in 1938, the Emmanuel Gospel Center (EGC) is a Christian ministry serving urban churches and communities in Greater Boston and beyond. Through applied research, consulting, and programs, EGC works with many partners to nurture the vitality of urban churches as they support and care for the spiritual and physical needs of all people in the city, especially those who are marginalized or underserved. For example, we help churches create programs to empower adults and youth who are homeless, and to motivate and support urban youth to complete high school and succeed in post-secondary education. We work to connect the Body of Christ across cultures, and seek to strengthen those working in urban contexts through customized, holistic consulting and training. We also create venues for urban youth workers, church planters, pastors, and leaders to collaborate in prayer, training, and effective engagement.
