Due to Christian persecution and tightening of governmental policies toward Christianity we are not at liberty to disclose some names or regions where we serve. But know this, GlobeWorks WILL continue to share Christ by taking the WORD to these areas. We also lead Pastor training and outreach in areas we cannot disclose for the safety of our missionaries in these countries. Not only does this help build relationships within the native community, it strengthens and invigorates the missionaries who have “their feet on the ground” in the often frustratingly slow process of building trust in order to share the saving Gospel of our God of love.

Fit For Life – Alabama
In a day where more black males are going to prison than college, our nation faces a crisis that only a few dare to challenge and even fewer experience any success. Billions of dollars and massive programs have barely made a dent in the problem. Crime, illiteracy, teen pregnancy and drug abuse hold the lives millions of young men captive in most, if not all of the major cities of America. The founder and Director of Fit for Life is Terrell Kennedy. Terrell is one of those unique individuals who believes that “well done is better than well said”. Despite facing the same challenges growing up that have ruined many lives, Terrell credits the grace of God for his successful family and career. Fit for Life (FFL) is a male-run after school tutoring program for adolescent males. The three areas of focus of FFL include tutoring in algebra, financial literacy and character development.
