Our vision is to see a flourishing church, led by well-equipped local leaders, serving every city and neighborhood of the world.
Our goal is bold: To make relevant theological education, practical training, and spiritual formation accessible to every ministry leader in every nation!
We help local church planters start new churches that proclaim Christ as Lord and pour themselves out in loving service for their communities.
We partner with the Church to share the love of Christ with children-at-risk, victims of human trafficking, and families stuck in cycles of poverty and injustice.
Some say this is not a “blizzard” or even a “long winter” but an “ice age,” and that nothing will be the same when we come out of it.
Despite the disruption and uncertainty brought on by COVID-19, some things are not changing. First, the need is the same. In Matthew 9:36, Jesus saw that people were “harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” Human beings today are as fragile, broken, and lost as ever. All around the world, people need God.
As we report our 2019 ministry results, we know that many have been planting and watering for generations and that God has given the growth. We are servants who are thankful to have been a part of what God is doing.
Mobilize 70 new U.S. missionaries and 20 non-Western missionaries for global service.
Build a coalition of U.S. churches and national partners to establish new churches in the Middle East and North Africa.
Partner with 10 seminaries globally for innovative programs to equip 1000+ Christian leaders who currently don’t have access to ministry training.
Through our Overseas Council ministry, we help seminaries around the world innovate to make ministry training accessible to the 9 out of 10 men and women who already are leading churches but have insufficient training. We call this the “Global Leadership Challenge.” China is a good example of this need. Many Chinese believers already lead churches but do not have training as pastors or teachers.

Spiritual talk, God-filled harmonies, and thanksgiving are not reserved for Sunday Schools and Church liturgies. These are meant to be everyday practices for all disciples of Jesus. We are invited to sing, speak of God’s graces, and offer prayerful gratitude at all times and in all places, during our fellowship with one another and with God. And, yes, the pages of annual reports such as this one are opportunities to present this combination of praise and thanksgiving to God—as well as spiritual encouragement to you.
We are grateful for the works of God. Thanks be to God! We are grateful for the flourishing of churches, theological schools, church leaders, and neighborhoods that occurred in the last 12 months. We are grateful the Kingdom of God continues to spread all over the world. We thank God we can share in that work with you.
Thank you. Thank you for supporting these works and for all of your prayers. All you have given has mattered, contributing to spiritual harmony we offer in Christ together.
May the grace and peace of God be yours in abundance this year!
