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.

business as missions

“Business as Missions,” as professional  jargon, catapulted in the public square and marketplace in conjunction with the Lausanne Movement within Christendom decades ago. The focus then was on creating a movement of business professionals using the gifts of entrepreneurship and efficient management to bring creative and long term sustainable solutions to the marketplace, utilizing resources generated from business profits to fund platforms for advancing the gospel to unreached people groups around the world.

GMF, as a 501c3 evangelical outreach organization, is focused on utilizing multiple platforms within its chartered charitable purpose to effectuate this strategy, especially within multi-family residential real estate and multi-media venues.

Dr. Hamlet, as a former Wall Street professional and business entrepreneur prior to his ordination to the gospel ministry/pastorate in 1997, has a passion for reaching the marketplace itself with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thus, the GMF Business as Missions “jargon” not only exists to generate program revenues to fund Great Commission advances around the globe, but, also, the ancillary goal of reaching its platform constituents personally with the Good News of Jesus Christ and His saving gospel.

Spanish Christian Radio

GMF started Buenas Nuevas Memphis, the first Spanish Christian radio station in Tennessee, in October, 2018. We offer “faith and hope to all” by sharing the eternal hope we have in Jesus through our music, messages, and events in our community.

Real Estate

GMF invests in multi-family real estate opportunities as vehicles through which to practice “Business as Missions.”

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.
