The Institute for Global Engagement
To overcome obstacles of culture and religion by creating and nurturing mutually beneficial relationships, inviting all viewpoints to the table, working together as partners for the common good.
In 2000, Bob and Margaret Ann Seiple—known as the "godparents" at IGE—felt called as Christians to steward a lifetime of experiences and relationships from all over the world. The Seiples were concerned that religious freedom was something everyone talked about but no one really knew how to operationalise, and that Christians were too often part of the problem. They founded IGE to address these issues, making Christ visible and Christians relevant as a result.
