The Rev. Britt Gilmore is a missionary of the General Board of Global Ministries assigned as a pastor at the East Belfast Mission in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Global Ministries and East Belfast Mission have a long partnership in providing a Christian witness to peace, justice, and tolerance in area of unemployment, poverty, and social and political tension. East Belfast Mission is currently involved in a large redevelopment called "Skainos" that will expand its' efforts toward community development and renewal. At the heart of the Mission is a worshiping congregation of 200. (For more information on Skainos, go to the website: http://www.skainos.org.)
Britt is a native of Florida and a clergy member of the Florida Annual Conference. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before God called him to ministry while working in Illinois. He served as a volunteer youth worker at East Belfast for two years and then entered the Duke University Divinity School, Durham, North Carolina, in 2002. He graduated from seminary three years later and served for six years as associate pastor of the First United Methodist Church of Orlando, Florida.
He recalls his previous experience in Belfast as a "tremendous time of growth spiritually and emotionally. As I served God in a different culture and economic setting, I learned much about God and myself. During this time, my call to ordained ministry was clarified through prayer and service, and the affirmation of others."
His pastoral work in Belfast is under the guidance of the Methodist Church of Ireland, which traces its origins to the early years of the Methodist movement. John Wesley visited the small Methodist community in Ireland as early as 1747 and would visit regularly across many decades.
Britt and his wife, Alison, also a missionary, are the parents of Ellie, born in 2004, Emily, born in 2007, and Jake, born in 2011.
