James & LaNelle George,
Missionaries & Founders of GAP Missions
The ministry began as “Missionary Aviation Outreach” in 1989 when we began to prepare for an outreach to the Gueré people living in the remote regions of Ivory Coast, West Africa. Twenty three people accepted the Lord in the first meeting and within eighteen months the ministry expanded to three neighboring villages. More than 350 people left their traditional animistic religion and trusted Jesus as their Savior and the first church was established in the village called Guiri, prefecture of Bangolo. Inquisitive visitors from other more distant villages came to the church and our home begging us to bring the “TRUTH” to their people.
GAP Missions Worldwide
Missionaries working through GAP Missions are serving in Europe, the Middle East and West Africa. GAP Missions encourages and equips these missionaries in their ministry of reaching the people of the world with the Gospel.

GAP Missions Purpose
GAP Missions is an organization dedicated to reaching the lost by fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord to “Go ye into all the world and preach the GOSPEL.” We also accept the responsibility of His Great Commandment to “love thy neighbor as thyself.”

A MINISTRY of BUILDING for CHRIST
Orphan Children – National Pastors – Village Churches – Support Buildings
Riding in the “bush” of the Western Region of Ivory Coast is not for the faint at heart. Sweltering tropical humidity & temperatures, bugs, rain & slick mud or dry and dusty conditions make getting off the paved highways an adventure few men are willing to tackle. Even paved roads require skilled riders due to dangerous potholes and patches of sand or gravel.
These dedicated Jungle Riders are reaching into the heart of the jungle regions with the Gospel using motorcycles which carry our solar-powered projection system. Each village we set-up in has the opportunity to view a presentation of the Gospel message through watching the Jesus Film.
