Press Kit for John Smithwick
Founder and President of Global Ventures
John and his wife Martine Smithwick have traveled the world preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the unreached as well as believers. They have carried God’s healing power to over 30 nations and have seen God perform many notable miracles.
Since JSMI Global Ventures was founded in 1998, they have seen over 1.9 million people won to Christ face to face through mass crusade evangelism and strategic outreaches, as well as potential millions through broadcasted evangelistic gatherings.
In many unreached areas of the world, Global Ventures has planted churches and trained new believers to reach out to their communities. They also launched the Global Ventures reality television show in 2011, which contained 3 seasons and is still airing on networks that broadcast all over the world.
It is their heart to not only reach the unreached masses, but also to train a remnant of people passionate about doing the same. In 2002, they began organizing missions teams, and have mobilized thousands of short-term missionaries to over 20 countries around the world. They also host an intensive internship program, training individuals in every aspect of missions ministry.
