Strategy and Vision
ACTS OF COMPASSION TOWARDS OTHERS

What it looks like:
• Care for orphans
• Provide clean water
• Distribute food and clothing
• Improve substandard housing
• Support medical clinics
• Invest in microloan projects

Why We Do It:
During his time on earth, Jesus continually practiced radical compassion in action towards people on the margins of society. We believe that providing for practical needs helps build a foundation on which we can develop lasting relationships with people and to share the Gospel.

EVANGELISM AND CHURCH PLANTING

What it looks like:
• Jesus film screenings
• Large-scale conferences and events
• Partnering with and supporting local churches
• One-on-one evangelism
• Providing resources for pastors and churches worldwide

Why We Do It
The message of salvation through the death and resurrection of Christ is a gift we are determined to share with the world. The Gospel has the power to transform the heart of an individual and to revolutionize entire nations. Through it we see families flourish, churches grow, communities find freedom, and societies embrace hope. Jesus changes everything!

EDUCATION AND LEADERSHIP TRAINING

What It Looks Like:
• Sponsorship of pastors through seminary training
• Discipleship tools to new believers
• Training for house church leaders
• Language-specific discipleship materials
• Seminars in the U.S. and abroad for ministry leaders

Why We Do It:
We believe that training and discipling the next generation of global church leaders is one of the most important advancements we can make in spreading the Gospel. There are so many courageous and willing pastors and ministry workers around the world who simply do not have the resources they need to impact their communities. The gift of education has proven transformational for these faithful believers and the people they serve.
