Who we are
We know what we do. We know how we do it. But most importantly, we know why we do it. Our purpose, our cause, our calling, our mandate… We exist to glorify the King. This is our ‘why’. We start with our why! We think, act, and communicate from the inside out. Our belief in glorifying the King motivates our team to mobilize, equip, and deploy Christ-followers to the hardest-to-reach places and people groups on planet earth. What drives passion for unreached people is not guilt, it’s God’s glory.
Inspired by the Ted talk from Simon Sinek
Over the last few decades, we’ve been working in some of the toughest environments that exist. Places where it’s not easy like: North Korea, Afghanistan, and the rugged Himalayas. You’ll find us where barriers seem insurmountable, where the lost sit in darkness, and where the name of Christ has not been heard. We are indigenous – infused with a myriad of cross-cultural workers, blended to accomplish impossible things together by His Spirit. We congregate at the leading edge of the frontlines, not just in pews.
We’ve been unable to publicly talk about the eternal nature of our work due to endangering ongoing activities, but now with the proper security protocols in place, we sense it’s time to raise a banner – to gather a resilient band of disciples intent on glorifying Christ among the hardest-to-reach places and people groups.
Depths of suffering
We believe that the Church is God’s agent on earth established to equip believers to reveal God’s love to a lost world. You’ll find us in barren lands where the afflicted suffer in sorrow. We’ve arrived at these destinations because we followed our Savior. We follow Him regardless of the consequences because we believe in eternity and its destinations. We practice a perpetual, active faith in Christ to not just get us to the field, but to keep us there and, flourish.
We’ve watched unimaginable levels of human tragedy and suffering unfold before our eyes. We’ve wept with our brothers and sisters until all our strength was gone – then we arose, turned our tears into tactics, and joined them in the depths of their human suffering – just as Christ joined ours. From there, hope springs to life and healing ensues.
We value formal theological training, but we don’t consider it a prerequisite for service. We invite workers – as Christ invited us – to “come as you are” with tender hearts open and ready to learn God’s Word through the obedience of faith as we walk by His Spirit. We are a dedicated band of disciple makers, not trusting in our own ability, but empowered by Christ’s faithfulness for the accomplishment of His mission.
