Who We Are...

We Believe:


In a triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, by whom all things, in heaven and earth are created. We commit ourselves to glorify him through thought, word and action.


In the incarnation of Jesus Christ, that salvation and atonement of sins come only through Him. 


In the Bible, the Holy and Infallible Word of God, the foundation for building lives with Godly purpose and pattern.


Our Biblical mandate is to GO share the Gospel first in our city then to the ends of the earth. 


Above all, and at all times our choice is to LOVE and SERVE.


We are called to be a people of every culture and background joined together in a united sense of divine mission.


We are committed to integrity, establishing lives and ministries on the foundations of Christian character and personal holiness.

On the GO since 1998, Nicolas and Shannon Kraft first worked in Chiclayo, Peru as church planters and youth ministers. In 2003 they went to Caranavi, Bolivia where they served four years at Radio Television Caranavi as producers of a Children’s Television program called ABC KIDS. The Krafts with their four children have been all over the USA and Bolivia, up the coast of Peru and down to the middle of Chile as Go Missions International. They have led seminars for marriages and families, taught children, discipled youth and encouraged Latin Americans to step out into missions.  Currently they are based in Chiclayo, Peru.

Sandy Churness

 It's a pleasure and honor to head up the home office for Go Missions Int. in an administrative capacity.  This position has brought together my gifts of administration, my personality type as a helper and my heart for missions.  Having grown up in Minnesota going to a church with a strong missions focus, an understanding of the priority of the Great Commission was early on instilled in me.  After getting my BA in Mathematics, I married a pastor and together we have since planted two churches and are now pastoring a third congregation in Gig Harbor, Washington.  Our present congregation, One Hope Church, is a strong supporter of GMI.  My husband Peter and I have three great kids, Hannah, Megan and Caleb, ages 21, 19 and 17.

Mark Sims

My name is Mark Sims. My wife Ginny and I have lived in Washington state for 20 years and our currently active in lay ministry at One Hope Church in Gig Harbor, Washington. Ginny and I are both Midwesterners and grew up in the church in Michigan and Illinois respectively. I have a passion for loving God’s people and served in leaderships positions beginning in youth groups in high school/college and culminating on church councils and boards of volunteer groups. We have served in positions of music and Christian education/discipleship, engaged and marriage ministry, prayer and prison ministry. In these ministries, we are excited to see that God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He empowers his people to set the captives free (all of us who fall short of God’s glory) through his son’s love for us and his empowering Spirit. I have used my God given talents in a 30 year career in business covering manufacturing, supply chain, insurance, finance and executive management. I look forward to sharing my gifts in a way that enhance and support the ministry of Go Missions International.
