First “Gem 4Christ” established in Ghana. We have established GEMS in Ghana under the name of Gems Ghana Mission. Our headquarters are located near Lake Bosomtwe in the Ashanti region. From our headquarters we later hope to start "outposts" when missionaries trained at our headquarters go to establish them. Each outpost set up for planting churches will be considered a "Gem4Christ".  Our goal is to have many "GEMS4CHRIST" throughout Ghana. Should God enable us to reach other countries in the future we will seek to repeat the process in that country.  The following missionaries are a part of GEMS Ghana Mission.

All of our missionaries seek to live by faith. We list them here on our website that you might pray for them and pray about what God would have you do to help them. We would love for you to take them on monthly, but also encourage you to give a one-time donation, or give what God asks you to give whenever He lays a particular missionary on your heart. You can donate online through PayPal or you can send a donation to GEMS, 7254 County Rd 415, McMillan, MI, 49853. Whichever method you choose, please be sure to put the name of the missionary you choose in the memo. Any donations not specified will be put into GEMS general account.

The Williams Family

About Michael Williams:

I was born in McMillan, Michigan to Pastor and Mrs. Paul Williams. My father has been the pastor of Northstar Baptist Church for 37 years as of July, 2012. I received Jesus Christ as my Saviour while at a revival meeting when I was five years old. I surrendered to be a missionary at the age of nine while attending a revival meeting preached by Wade Eddie. A few months later, a missionary on his way to Africa came to our church; It was then that I knew that God was calling me to Africa.

About Brooke Williams:

I was born in Memphis Tenessee to Robert and JoBeth Hooker. Due to complications at my birth my mother and I almost died, but God spared our lives. When I was three years old, my father moved our family from Tennessee to Indiana so that he could attend Hyles-Anderson College. At the age of seven, I trusted Christ as my personal Saviour. At age eleven, I was in a serious car accident and almost died, but once again, God spared my life. My mother has reminded me of this many times, telling me, “Brooke, God spared your life twice for a very special purpose.” Quite possibly it has been this saying that has been my inspiration for serving the Lord. On deputation God again spared my life when I rolled our vehicle on the way home from our first meeting, and again I was reminded that God has a special plan for me.


About our Family:

Brooke and I were married on June 09, 2001.  We both graduated from Bible College the following Spring. Since then, God has given us five boys to raise for Him as we have served first in Ghana, West Africa for almost three years and then Germany for nearly two years. God used us to help start the Independent Baptist Church of Kumasi, Ghana, to start the First Baptist Church of Awafo, Ghana, and to pastor the Word of God Church in Nuremberg, Germany. In 2012, God laid it on my heart to begin the work of GEMS and directed us back to Ghana, where we started the Faith Independent Baptist Church in Apewu.  As GEMS is enlarged according to the Lord's will, we will continue to start churches around the Lake Bosomtwe region, across Ghana and around the world!
