Area of Focus:
We initiate, facilitate, and support the creation and development of communities of faith that seek, welcome, and gather people into the body of Christ and challenge them to Christian discipleship.
Global Ministries is committed to planting 400 new churches and worship communities outside the US, primarily through recent mission initiatives in Africa, Asia, Central America, and Eastern Europe. This work is supported by the new 400 Fund.
Global Ministries is also supporting congregational development by strengthening ethnic and racial congregations in the US, sponsoring academies for church growth in Africa, forging mission partnerships between congregations in the US and those in other countries, and sending missionaries to assist indigenous leaders in starting and nurturing new churches.
