Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We exist on behalf of a world that has not had access to the Good News of Jesus Christ. We are unashamedly an International community of Christian mission to some of the world's least reached communities. We believe that many issues of human suffering are a direct result of human sin. Accordingly we serve to bless communities that have needs as a practical demonstration of the love of God while we explain the reason for our hope in God.

Charting impact

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

We are committed to the establishment of Christian community wherever we serve, believing that the Christian gospel is the hope for the world.
Whether what results is described as church is less important than the establishment of communities who worship, pray, learn and serve together to establish the Kingdom of God around them.

We accomplish our goals through:
Recruitment and training of individuals, couples and families who want to serve in pioneer and cross-cultural situations.
Establishment of Business enterprises (Business as Mission) that demonstrate and maintain the standards of the Kingdom of God in relationship to all stakeholders, create valid opportunities for credible presence in a community and create wealth for developing local communities.
Short-term medical initiatives appropriate to the local context of service.
The use of adventure tourism, adventurous prayer expeditions, and programs of outdoor (outward bound) activities as means to create context for serving in remote places and contact with under-served communities.
The establishment of art galleries and other artistic initiatives, again to create context for presence, activity and local blessing of under-served communities.
The development of schools, social programs, and local development initiatives to assist communities and to create viable context for the planting of local churches.

World Horizons, of which Horizons Expedition Inc is the incorporated expression in the United States, has over forty years of experience in developing long-term assistance programs in numerous communities around the world. From the African Sahel to the rain-forests of the Orinoco River, and from urban communities in Cambodia to the temporary homes of Middle Eastern refugees, our multi-national teams have been creating opportunities for human advancement alongside an unconditional proclamation of the Christian truths that we believe.
Our team members have many years experience in such fields as the creative arts and art therapy, Business development and social entrepreneurism, church-planting, development projects, elementary education, farming and permaculture, media-ministry, mountain-craft and adventure tourism, short-term medical clinics, pioneering in cross-cultural contexts, and other skills suited to local contexts in the places we serve.

There are many areas in which the World Horizons community has advanced its goals.
For example during the most recent reporting period:
Hundreds of Arabic-speaking refugee families were served through local outreach within the Middle East.
Many village communities in West Africa were served despite the encroach of various militant groups in the region.
Urban poor were served in SE Asia.
New church communities were established in places such as West Africa.
