As executive director of AGWM, Greg Mundis provides leadership for 2,708 AG missionaries and associates serving in 252 countries, territories and provinces.
A native of Ohio, Mundis grew up in the Youngstown area. He accepted Christ at age 13 while attending a military chapel service in Fort Gordon, Georgia, while visiting his sister. Returning home, he soon began attending a small Italian Pentecostal church and was baptized in the Holy Spirit.
After high school, Mundis enrolled at Youngstown State University to study political science, but his plans soon changed. At a Sunday evening church service, he was praying at the altar when he sensed God’s call to ministry. A message in tongues and interpretation confirmed God’s plan for his life.
Mundis transferred to Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biblical studies. Afterward, he and his wife, Sandie, served as youth pastors at a church in Lima, Ohio, before returning to Springfield in 1974. For the next four years they were youth pastors at Central Assembly of God.
While listening to a description of the spiritual needs in Austria, Mundis felt an overwhelming burden for the nation and its people. In response to God’s call, the Mundises were appointed as missionaries to Austria and arrived in Salzburg in 1980. While learning German, they quickly became involved in church planting, media and education.
In 1987, Mundis cofounded an international church, Vienna Christian Center, and served as pastor for four years. The church has since grown into a flourishing congregation of more than 1,800 people meeting in several locations throughout the city.
Mundis was named area director for Central Europe in 1991. When AGWM made the Europe region a distinct entity in 1998, Mundis was selected as its first regional director. For the next 13 years he developed strategies to increase ministries to the region’s cities, campuses and children and helped raise awareness of the culturally diverse communities created by the swell of immigrants coming to the region. He also initiated greater communication among missionaries involved in similar ministries across Europe by providing opportunities for them to network and exchange ideas. In 2011, he was elected as AGWM executive director.
Mundis, teaming with the AGWM Executive Committee, is focusing on the future by emphasizing global partnerships, the suffering church, and unreached people groups.
In addition to a bachelor’s degree, Mundis earned a master’s degree in theology from Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield and a doctorate in ministry from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Massachusetts. He and Sandie have two children and eight grandchildren.
