WE EQUIP GOD’S PEOPLE TO EVANGELIZE HIS WORLD AND ESTABLISH HIS CHURCH.
He was a lone pastor from Oklahoma with a simple, yet profound vision. In 1987, Mike Downey left the pastorate to create a small missions organization. It consisted of believers going into new cities, preaching the Gospel, and leaving behind new churches. Originally named Global Missions Fellowship (GMF), this new organization focused on making a lasting difference around the world by securing networks of local partners who lay the groundwork for short-term mission teams.
In 2005, Global Missions Fellowship became e3 Partners. Nearly 30 years later, we are serving over 40 countries, supported by a passionate team of 400+.
