Short-Term Mission Trips

Central Asian Partnership

In 2019, our partnership with the Kyrgyz church is expanding. A new, massive revival movement called Two22 has sprung up in Central Asia. Two22’s ultimate goal is to see 2% of the population in Central Asia, which also includes Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan, come to Christ by the year 2022. 

2% might seem like a small goal, but to achieve it locals from all five countries must collectively share the gospel over 6M times in order to bring 600k new believers to the faith. 2% conversion represents the critical mass needed to transform the entire region. And this gospel transformation will lead to overwhelming social justice reform, direct confrontation with Islam, and a starting point for the conversion of surrounding countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, and India.

 

2019 Global Missions

Pacific Crossroads church aims to send more than 100 mission team members to Central Asia in 2019 to support our Christian brothers and sisters in the Two22 movement. Each team member we send, each dollar we raise in support, and each prayer we offer up directly contributes to Two22. 

Even though we are 1000s of miles away, we, PCC, are unwavering, active participants in the Two22 movement, and, alongside our Central Asian brothers and sisters, fully expect the gospel to be made known in this remote part of the world. 

Consider how your time and gifting can be used by God to serve across the world. Your skills will be put to good use in a place that doesn’t have accessibility to the resources and skills we have here at home.  Below are descriptions of this year’s trips.
