Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The country of Honduras is stricken with poverty, economic upheaval and political instability that have led to a culture wherein there is widespread corruption, oppression of women and children's rights, as well as illicit and dangerous drug trafficking.

We believe Jesus has a call in our lives to plant transformational churches. Accepting this call, we will love His people, equip and train His followers, and nurture His churches.

Mission UpReach aims to bring hope and Christian values to allow communities to meet the needs of their citizens. By developing and equipping local Christian leaders to build self-led, self-sustaining , and self-replicating congregations, the transformed culture will then achieve a multiplication of life-changing ministries as each new congregation meets the physical, mental, and spiritual needs within its own community, and develop future leaders to launch still other congregations.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

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

To develop local leaders to launch 1010 self-led, self-sustaining, and self-replicating congregations in and around Western Honduras in this generation—the 20 year period between 2016 and 2035.

We believe that developing local Christian leaders will transform the culture of Western Honduras for the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We achieve this transformation by training and equipping leaders to build self-led, self-sustaining, and self-replicating congregations. These congregations do not rely on outside funding or leadership to exist.
It is through these congregations that individuals experience true, holistic life change—physical, mental, and spiritual. As individual lives are changed, communities are changed, and gradually the culture of Western Honduras is transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ.

To that end, it is our goal to launch 1010 leadership teams (groups that launch and support local congregations) in Western Honduras within this generation.

We need your help as we build bridges with these communities that allow us to develop leaders so that together we can transform Western Honduras in the name of Jesus Christ.

We currently have funding, programs, staff and infrastructure to move forward with our five key program areas. Our organization is guided by a Key Performance Indicator with all projects measured and guided by this KPI. At this time and given the current funding and organizational structure, we believe this is a reasonable performance goal to attain.

We have 50+ seedling congregations, with 20+ at various stages of launch and 11 very solidly performing under our self-led, self-sustaining, and self-replicating criteria.
