Our founder, Bob Evans, chose the name Greater Europe Mission (affectionately "GEM") in 1952 because he had a vision to someday have missionaries serving in northern and eastern Europe, as well as in North Africa. Today, this means that we consider many nations including Nordic countries like Iceland and Sweden, Eastern European countries like Russia and Ukraine, and Eurasian countries like Georgia and Azerbaijan, to be part of "Greater" Europe.
