Australian Churches of Christ Global Mission Partners (GMP) is a Christian mission organisation committed to facilitating life-changing partnerships. We were formerly known as Australian Churches of Christ Overseas Mission Board Inc and began in 1891 as the Churches of Christ Foreign Missions Committee. More can be found in "Partners, One Hundred Years of Mission Overseas by Churches of Christ in Australia 1891-1991", which is available for $15.

GMP understands that mission must work with what God is doing and in partnership with local people. This means we focus on partnerships with churches and agencies overseas, linking them with partners in Australia.
GMP operates in three areas:
- Indigenous Ministries Australia (IMA), which encourages new directions with Indigenous Christian Ministries by concentrating on priority areas such as strengthening Indigenous churches and culture;
- Community Development through Churches of Christ Overseas Aid (COCOA), which conducts relief and development projects across the world with local partners. COCOA has tax deductibility under the Overseas Aid Gift Deduction Scheme (OAGDS);
- International Church Partnerships (ICP), which conducts evangelism, church planting and ministry training projects across the world with local partners.
