SERIOUSLY, WHAT’S WITH THE GUMBY?

In 1995, David Harms, the founder of i58:10 Media, took his first mission trip to Africa. Before he left, he was given one of the bendable toy Gumby figures to keep in his pocket as a reminder to “be flexible” when his Western worldview collided with a third-world environment.

Since that first trip over 20 years ago, Gumby has taken on the deeper meaning of always being open to how God is leading.

The unofficial mascot of i58:10 Media, Gumby serves as a reminder that God is in control , not us, and it’s up to us to conform to God’s will, not our own.
