How we partner with you to tell the world about Jesus.
Our approach is simple and effective.
We stay until the hope of Jesus is so deeply rooted in the region that it is most likely to remain, generation after generation.
Where we have active initiatives.
The leaders who are spreading the Good News.
There is only one way to deliver the Gospel to groups who have not yet heard the name of Jesus; it has to be personally delivered. A messenger must GO.
When Christ called a man to take the Gospel to the first-century world, He chose the Apostle Paul, a man culturally, linguistically, and historically related to that world. Our approach is the same.
Our field partners share a similar culture, language, and history with the lost in or near their communities. This approach is called the “proximate strategy.”
How local leaders are equipped.
We build long-term relationships with our field partners who include culturally-near churches, national leaders, and church planters. For those who need training, we provide it. For those who need resources, we gather them. And, for those who need a strategic vision, we come alongside them.
Often times, training, resources, and region-specific strategies are designed in collaboration with our partner organizations: Finishing the Task, The Timothy Initiative, The Finishing Fund, and others.
Strategies that help the message last.
Our work isn’t done until there are multiple streams of healthy, multiplying churches. In most people groups, this means that multiple churches have been planted, then those churches each plant another, then those newest churches each also plant another, and then each of those even newer churches plant yet another.
In other words, it takes multiple streams of church plants that have at least four multiplying generations to truly reach an unreached group.
To chart the progress, we work with our field partners to maintain accurate and regular status reports. We diligently track things like: the number coming to faith in Christ, the number of those being discipled in their faith, and the number of new churches starting each year.
