About Grace Outreach Ministries Asia (GOMA)

Our Values


Lordship of Jesus (He is the center of all we do and He gets 100% of the praise) Galatians 2:20; 2 Corinthians 4:5; Psalm 37:4-5; John 5:30 (Jesus' example for us)

Leadership Training (Training pastor's to do the work that God has called the church to do: Evangelize, Make Disciples, Train leaders, and bless the poor, oppressed, or abandoned people.  GOMA practices this in the persecuted areas of Southeast Asia) 2 Timothy 2:2

Love of God (Practically living out the love of Jesus to those who are in need spiritually and physically in our ministries.) Matthew 22:38-39; Mark 12:30-31

Since the start of GOMA, there has been many adjustments in the way we do things. However, we have not deviated from our values. For example, in the beginning we were pioneering ways to help bless the orphans and churches in the Philippines, Myanmar, and Cambodia. This was an expensive adventure because GOMA shouldered the full financial burden of all the ministries. GOMA was also giving scholarships to help our Burmese workers finish their Biblical studies in one of the "underground colleges" in their country.  Also, SPANKY was traveling to different areas to help in the training of pastors and other Christian workers.

God blessed us through these times but  along the way we have learned NOT to reinvent the wheel of ministry but to improve on it.  In order to stay under the radar of the oppressive governments in Myanmar, we found it best to partner with other ministries to accomplish  God's leading.    Example: Instead of placing orphans in rented facilities, the Orphan homes are now absorbed into the local churches and the pastor's have been encouraged to take in those who have been abandoned on the streets and make them a part of their church families.

Our Vision

GOMA was founded in 2005 with the goal to encourage the oppressed and to give hope to the abandoned in the persecuted areas of Southeast Asia. The church is commanded to go into all the world and make disciples, but in

many parts of the world, the church's mission is lacking.  For example:

  • The 10/40 window consist of two thirds of the world’s 6 billion plus population
  • Just a little over 1% of the church's missions finances are used to reach this population.
  • This means that almost 99% of the missions funds are used to reach 1/3 of the world’s population! How sad!
  • Persecution of the Christian believer is common throughout the 10/40 window.
  • Being a Christian in these countries could mean imprisonment or death.

 

It is GOMA’s goal to help teach and train the future pastors, evangelists, and teachers in the 10/40 window and to see them reach their own countries with the truth of the gospel.  Please place us on your prayer list and pray!

God WILL build His church.  This is a promise, and He uses people just like you and me to get the job done. 

Only God knows what the day will bring and what the tomorrows hold.  Let us serve God and see Him work through us.

Blessings,

Founder and CEO aka Spanky

Spanky was called into the ministry in 1978 and completed his education in 1984 at Southeastern Bible College (Birmingham) with a Bachelors Degree in Missions. He was awarded a Honorary Doctorate in 2010 by a ministry school in Burma. (Note: The school is not disclosed because of possible retaliation from the government of Myanamar)

 

Spanky planted churches in the USA from 1984-2000 and continued in support ministries until 2005. However, after several years of serving God in the USA, God called him to train future leaders in the persecuted areas of Southeast Asia. Today he has ministries in Myanmar, Cambodia, South China, and is developing a training center in the Philippines. It is his goal to train locals to reach their own country for God's glory.

 

Because of the areas of ministry, Spanky has chosen not to use his real name or real picture. Please pray for Spanky and the GOMA team as they do the work of God in Southeast Asia.
