God loves people the most out of all of His creation. Our global outreach ministry works alongside partners around the world to encourage the work of God’s global church by sending and supporting short-term and long-term missionaries. We prioritize church planting, global cities, and indigenous leadership in the areas of Asia Pacific, Central Asia, and Europe.
“We believe that the church is the primary, God-ordained means for Christian witness… It is through the planting, nurturing and reproduction of vibrant, contextualized and missional churches that the gospel of Christ is proclaimed and incarnated to those who have yet heard or believed. And it is the church, in all its imperfections, that is Christ’s Bride and Body, and that indeed bears in its’ life, the presence of the Kingdom.”

A global city refers to a center with high diversity in language, culture, religion, and ideologies of at least a million people. “A city church of 100 can have ten or more countries in the membership. City churches are hubs, ‘worldwide webs’ of relationships that link back to family or colleagues… We are committed to global cities of strategic importance, because our [church] in Los Angeles was planted as such. God has given us a heart for the unreached and marginalized within our own city, and as we seek to be a light to our city we desire to be that for our world beyond.”

“We believe that nationals are the most effective witnesses to their native cultures, and so we seek to partner with individuals and ministries that focus on training, equipping, empowering, and serving indigenous believers to reach their own for Christ… We simply believe that the most strategic way to reach those suburban and rural communities is to have vital, missional, gospelcentered,indigenous church planting movements in urban centers in the world.”
