Professional Experience: Dr. Gort-Bakker lives in Rotterdam, Holland, and is an author, journalist, and director of GIDSnetwerk Rotterdam. Gea aims to make the Church aware of what God is doing regarding urban mission; local and global. She does so by telling stories of people involved, and by reflecting on (theological) ways of thinking. She combined stories and reflection in God in the City; A Missional Way of Life in an Urban Context (2012). She also initiated the book & awareness campaign in the Netherlands God ain’t White (2013), about how the Dutch slavery past is still affecting relationships today. Locally Gea connects Christian leaders, active in church, politics, and business. International she is well connected through her past with the relief organization Mercy Ships. She graduated from BGU with her Doctor of Ministry in 2012. Presently she is researching Business as Mission (BAM) from and within the Western-European Context for a Book & Go Project.
