Who is Gea Gort?

Dr. Gea Gort is passionate about mission, especially in the urban context. She sees a grassroots missionary movement emerging. As author, journalist and missiologist she researches, writes and speaks about international developments regarding this movement.


Gea did research about Business as Mission. For the book BAM Global Movement; Concept & Stories (forthcoming April 2018) she interviewed over thirty practioners from around the world and wrote their stories.

Her book God in the City; A Missional Way of Life in an Urban Context was released in 2012, as part of her DMin dissertation (Bakke Graduate University with focus on ‘Transformational Leadership in the Urban Context’).

In her native country (The Netherlands) Gea put Business as Mission on the agenda through publicity and networking around the book project BAM!

After the release of the Dutch version of God in the City, she initiated in the Netherlands the book & awareness campaign ‘God ain’t White’; how the Dutch slavery past is still effecting relationships today (God is niet wit, 2013).
