Our mission

Global Ministries Foundation exists to bring together and strengthen the efforts of individuals and churches to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to minister to those in need. 

We accomplish this mission in a variety of ways.

Affordable housing

One of our strategies to reach the world for Christ is to invest in real estate opportunities that provide affordable housing for lower and moderate income residents around the US. We then minister to the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of our residents right on site.

By working with local partners, GMF offers each housing community services below based on location and resident needs. All services are provided at no cost to the residents and are completely voluntary.

Safe & Sanitary Housing

Childcare & Tutoring

Employment Training


Dental & Medical Services

Personal Finance Classes

Meals & Groceries

Computer classes

Sharing the gospel...

GMF serves as the Richard L. Hamlet Evangelism Association. Dr. Hamlet uses his gift of proclamation evangelism all over the world. In addition to international crusades, area-wide gospel-fests and outreaches are held throughout the United States. Most events include free food, entertainment, social services, and a message from Dr. Hamlet that clearly explains the gospel to all in attendance.

...continuing discipleship.

Biblical evangelism must be connected to biblical discipleship. In every country in which he holds evangelism fesitvals, Dr. Hamlet works in conjunction with GMF’s local church partners. By doing ministry side by side with them, local Christian leaders can carry on the discipleship process long after the crusades are over.
