Meet the Founders
Levi and Diane Velasco have partnered in ministry since 1982.  They’re lives intersected at the University of the Philippines where both were students in the early 1970s.  They became believers and disciples of Jesus the Messiah through the ministry of missionaries.  In 1983 the Velasco family migrated to the United States where Levi subsequently received his undergraduate degree from the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago (1988).  The Velascos have a wealth of international ministry experience having served in local churches and parachurch organizations (ReachGlobal, Promise Keepers, Awana International [Levi]).  Before establishing GLINTS Levi and Diane teamed up as missionary recruiters for the Baptist General Conference (a.k.a. Converge Worldwide).  Levi currently serves as the pastor of local and global outreach at The Moody Church, downtown Chicago.

GLINTS is a non-profit ministry registered in the State of Illinois. It is a 501 (c) 3 religious organization under United States IRS codes and is approved to issue tax-deductible receipts.

GLINTS is answering the call to provide needs on the ground such as water, food supplies, temporary shelter and other basic commodities through ministry connections in Nepal. If you are moved to give, now is the time!
