Global Institute For Transformation® (GIFT)/For Today's Show
Welcome to the Global Institute For Transformation (GIFT), a cross-denominational, 501(c)(3) ministry.
GIFT's mission involves supporting the spiritual, material and physical needs of people around the world, by working collaboratively with the Church and the global Christian community. For example: GIFT is running a "smart," sweet potato farming program to bring"The Mother Teresa of Foods" to those in dire need of food and income in places globally. (Click here to learn more.)
GIFT helps all Christians fulfill our calling identified in the Document on the Laity, Co-Workers in the Vineyard of the Lord: "All of the baptized are called to work toward the transformation of the world... All of the faithful are called in various ways to share in the Church’s mission of announcing the reign of God and transforming the world in the light of Christ.”
As Pope Francis indicated in his first Palm Sunday Mass, "With Christ, we can transform ourselves and the world."
As the United Method Church states, "The Mission of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."
GIFT HAS JOINED THE FATHER JOSEPH NETWORK TO HELP FULFILL THE UN SDGS.
Global Institute For Transformation (GIFT) has become an affiliate of the Father Joseph Network (FJN), after working together to advance economic development. FJN's work across Haiti represents a proven model for eradicating poverty, eliminating hunger, enabling wellbeing and more.
FJN has appointed Tim Maurer, GIFT founder and president, as CEO of the Father Joseph Network organization. Learn more about FJN by watching a documentary produced about Father Joseph on Netflix (https://www.netflix.com/title/80113805), and by visiting the FJN website (www.fatherjosephnetwork.org)
