Reino Unido

We work hand in hand with evangelical churches to send and receive gospel workers equipped for cross-cultural mission wherever people live and die without hearing God’s good news.

We do this by:

  • developing and promoting opportunities for churches to send and receive cross-cultural gospel workers to places where people will otherwise live and die without hearing the good news about Jesus.
  • envisioning and enabling churches to prayerfully engage in God’s mission to the nations through multicultural gospel outreach, compassion, and discipleship, both locally and globally.
  • training and supporting missionaries so that they are helped to practice integrated, biblical disciple-making, as they proclaim and promote God’s Word where there is no witness.
