Far Reaching Ministries

Far Reaching Ministries

Reaching Ministries (FRM), founded in 1998, is an evangelical Christian missionary and humanitarian 501(c)(3) organization. Ongoing funding and support is provided by individuals, churches, businesses and private foundations.

In 1996, Pastor Wes Bentley, Founder and CEO of Far Reaching Ministries (FRM), began serving as a missionary in the war torn regions of Bahr El-Ghazal, Western Equatoria, and the Nuba Mountains (Southern Kordofan). Two years later, FRM began working with South Sudanese refugee camps, primarily in Kiryandongo, Uganda. Offering love and hope to orphans and widows who had lost their families, FRM served the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those most affected by ethnic and religious cleansing.

Far Reaching Ministries (FRM) and Far Reaching Ministries Aviation (FRMA)  focus on providing discipleship, followed by providing humanitarian resources relief. This includes providing education to the poor and persecuted people in various nations throughout the world. FRM’s mission is to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost and dying of the world, with discipleship as the primary vehicle. Together, FRM and FRMA accomplishes this through evangelism, addressing audiences of all sizes (from evangelical crusades to one-on-one relationships), planting and establishing churches, as well as the founding Bible schools.

FRM and FRMA resources are similarly utilized to rescue and prevent the suffering and exploitation of vulnerable communities by assisting to rebuild lives after facing religious persecution, violence, ethnic cleansing, rape, abduction, torture, and humanitarian crises caused by civil war. FRM and FRMA serves the afflicted, the starving, those enslaved by human traffickers, the ill or dying by bringing aid for their physical needs, but most importantly, fulfilling their spiritual needs.

Including all field posts, FRM and FRMA currently operates in more than eleven countries around the world. Field posts are managed and staffed by a small number of expatriate missionaries and/or pastors, and a large number of national workers trained by FRM. In doing so, the scope and impact increases exponentially. All staff members are trained to train others and encouraged to “work themselves out of a job.”

To enrich the quality of life of rural, and tribal people through strengthen the Self Help Groups. To solve the problem of rural poverty grass root planning is must. When we talk of grass root planning the basic foundation of poverty reduction programme is proper identification of the poor on a grass root level and should be treated as a continuing process that periodically tracks the situation of the poor so that a clear picture will emerge as to the likely demand for providing wage employment as well as self employment. There is a need to prepare family-wise livelihood plans and need to ensure an up gradation of skills to improve earning capacity. This can be done in two ways, either by providing skills and tools to wage earners or by providing those skills to move out of wage employment into small livelihoods.

It will bring social benefits in terms of improved work for participation arising out of skill development, reduced and disguised unemployment, migration of workers from low wage areas to growth pole areas, improved literacy health conditions and improved infrastructure etc.

LIFT RDWS purses through integrated technological, developmental and organizational approach towards community development. We have dedicated for creating equal opportunities in our society with preservation of regional and cultural traditions. Explicitly we work for the prosperity of rural, urban and tribal people through integrated approach which promotes awareness, education, economic, health, sanitation, capacity building and bio-diversity programs with an insistence on women and youth empowerment and formers cooperative movement.
