Global Interaction is the Australian Baptist cross-cultural mission organisation.

Global Interaction is the international cross-cultural sending agency of Australian Baptist churches and facilitates the service of Australian Baptists in Christ’s global mission. The headquarters are in Melbourne.

We send people for evangelism, church planting and nurture, Biblical training and leadership development. We also recruit for a specialist agency established to manage and implement development, educational, medical and social justice programs.

We have been operating for almost 130 years and have been known as Australian Baptist Foreign Mission (ABFM), Australian Baptist Missionary Society (ABMS) and now Global Interaction. We are an affiliated body of Australian Baptist Ministries.

We work in partnership with many organisations in Australia and overseas, particularly Baptist World Aid Australia (“BWAA”), which provides funding for some of our specialist programs.
  • We believe God's greatest gift is a life-transforming relationship with Jesus.
  • Our passion is to share the gift of Jesus and see Him embraced by all people around the world.
  • With deep compassion and cultural sensitivity, Global Interaction exists to empower communities to develop their own distinctive ways of following Jesus.
