Our articles of incorporation require that we send our teams only to those groups of people that have little or no Christian witness. At the time of our founding in August 1986, there were 17,000 unreached people groups. Currently, that number has been reduced to less than 3,000 with the expectation that all of them will be reached in the near future. This is an exciting prospect!
Our organization has no dues or membership fees. Everyone is a volunteer who raises funds for missions trips through church, families, friends, and other sponsors. We get discount travel fares to help reduce expenses to the minimum.
From financial contributions from interested partners, we take a “tithe” from our resources to provide financial support to missionaries in the field as well as partial support for volunteers who are unable to raise full funding.
Our motto is built on Paul’s talk in Romans 15:19-20: “I go only to those who have never heard the name of Christ, that I not build on another man’s foundation.” To achieve this goal, we concentrate on unreached people groups usually found in the 10/40 world window, although we strive to meet the needs of individuals in other areas as well.
