“Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water spring up into everlasting life.” – John 4:13
The villagers take ownership of the well in that they are taught how it functions, how to fix it, and they’re expected to provide half of the funds when repairs are needed. No longer are wells being abandoned when broken, but they’re being fixed as pride of ownership and ability have taken over.
Our national partners provide spiritual discipling to these previously unreached people and tribes, and plant Christian churches where none had existed. Relationships are nurtured and grow. This methodology has proven to be very successful, and is replicated time and time again because of its positive outcomes. People are turning from a life of physical and spiritual darkness to one of hope and a future.
Medical and Disaster Relief
“Carry each others burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” – Galatians 6:2
When there is a need identified by our national partners due to disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, wars or persecution, we make funds available to help purchase basic necessities and medical supplies for people who have been severely affected.
Shiloh Training Centers
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, fully equipped for every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Shiloh Training Centers were begun in response to one of the greatest needs in Fulfilling the Great Commission; that of equipping leaders, pastors and trainers with the knowledge and skills required to produce future disciples of Christ.
But we needed a place for that, one that would provide shelter, classrooms, and equipment so that leaders and potential leaders could meet together to be led by experienced local leaders with passion and vision. Hence, Shiloh Training Centers.
Humanitarian Outreach is approached intentionally with the ultimate goal of being audio Bible distribution. This approach of using water, medical or disaster relief is a very effective way to open doors in otherwise hostile environments. It becomes the ‘wings of the gospel.’
Micro-Enterprise Projects create financial stability for proven national leaders through micro-enterprises in the form of goats, cows, taxis, vegetable gardens, fish farms or libraries.
World Mission Summits
World Mission Summits are regularly scheduled meetings for our amazing network of national partners spread across Africa and Asia. These times together build community as they share testimonies, encouragement and discipleship training. This investment in our most precious resource, our national partners, is so powerful and essential for gospel expansion!
