Steadman Harrison, MA/MTS, is the Chief Executive Officer at Global Outreach International. As they look to the future, their goal is to democratize mission development. They want to catalyze the modern mission movement and expand the number of short-term and long-term team members extending their reach into a larger world.
At Global Outreach International, they practice a low-boundaries approach; by that we mean we want to see the Gospel going further, faster, while we reduce the barriers and boundaries that keep Christians from living out their faith in a cross-cultural context.

Alyssa has worked for the Center for Creative Leadership as a program coordinator, experiential facilitator, and editor of the Awareness Program for Executives (APEX).
