Mission

World Mission provides the Word of God in an audio format (The Treasure) for people who learn orally and live in areas where there is little to no Christian church - mostly Africa, Asia and India.

We also provide humanitarian aid, pastoral training and clean water solutions, all with the goal of bringing the gospel to those the Holy Spirit is readying.

Locally, we have thrift centers that people can donate to and volunteer at. This helps the people living in the area with good clothing and household goods at great prices and helps the people living across the seas in that they are then able to receive the gospel via the Treasure - MP3 player - that is solar-powered and in one of their 7,000 languages/dialects.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We will unveil the gospel of the kingdom for every oral learner living within an unreached people group.
Our goal over the next 5 years is to grow to the point that we are distributing 100,000 Treasures each year.

World Mission connects with national partners who already have a network of contacts throughout their regions and are not afraid to venture farther making new contacts. We assist our partners with leadership training, strategic humanitarian projects, team building with other national partners, and the provision of Treasures and distribution support.

World Mission has the availability of thousands of different languages for the Treasure (audio Bible). We are connecting with individuals, local churches, and other organizations/foundations who will assist us in this worldwide distribution. Our strengths include developing effective National Networks among Unreached People Groups, recording new languages, and partnering with other agencies who share our commitment to impact Unreached People Groups.

Over the last 2 years, we have doubled our Treasure distribution from 10,000 to 20,000 per year. We estimate that almost 3 million people will hear the gospel as the result of these 20,000 Treasures because of our listening group strategy. Many have come to know the Lord, some have received a miraculous healing, and several churches have been planted as a result of these distributions.
