Charting impact

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

Our intention is to increase support national church planters, primarily in areas and countries that are closed to traditional missionary methods. As this is done we will also seek to help them in other tangible ways such as providing them with feeding centers, orphanages, educational programs, etc. We are currently serving such preachers in about 80 countries and would like to see that increased to 90 in the next five years.

We are actively looking for new groups to work with who meet our standard requirements for support and accountability. With further developements in the Middle East we have been able to expand into closed countries and continue to work on other countries in central Asia.

Our only limitation is funding. We have more contacts than we can manage at this time but choose to move slowly. The approval process involves usually several years and requires personal examination of the group and their leadership. This step involves both staff and travel, thus the need for funding.

Currently our process in working in about 80 countries. Over the years we have been involved in other countries where we no longer serve because our assistance was effective in helping the groups become capable of self-funding, no longer needing our help. We are directly supporting nearly 900 qualified preachers, and working with over 20,000 as well as many students and staff; we have orphanages we fund in India and feeding centers in various countries. We also funds a number of rural schools in multiple countries as well as the efforts of the preachers and churches working with lepers, deaf, abandoned children and other tragedies.
