GO InterNational has been serving since 1968, when Rev. Maurice Stevens took a trip to Haiti and returned home with a passion to "take people out of the pew into the mission field". Since then, partnerships in Africa, Asia, Europe, Central and South America have been forged, and GO has sent over 1000 Christian missions teams across the world.
