Their mission is Faith Way Global Outreach, a broad ministry that runs evangelistic campaigns, leadership training for Christian workers, church planting, a Bible college, women’s ministry, and various mercy ministries to meet physical needs. Over the years the ministry has trained 56 preachers, 300 local leaders, planted 26 churches, and conducted many revival meetings and evangelistic campaigns.

Adam & Kristy Griffith - Thailand
Adam grew up in Georgetown, Ohio, and went to Cincinnati Christian University (CCU). God planted in Adam a desire to do youth ministry outside of the USA. Adam spent the summer of 2007 in India as an NMSI intern. Kristy grew up in Texas and graduated from Ozark Christian. Kristy discovered her love for impoverished communities, youth and God’s heart for those who have not heard the gospel. Adam and Kristy affiliated with NMSI in 2008 and were married April 10, 2010. They are work in Chiang Mai, Thailand networking youth homes and providing them with resources, equipping youth workers, and discipling youth (ages 12-20) living without their parents.
