WHO WE ARE
Unreached – SEND focuses its ministries on the unreached — people who don’t have access to the gospel or a strong local church. Sometimes this means whole people groups and sometimes it means unreached pockets of an otherwise “reached” society. Over 40% of the world’s population is considered unreached.
Making disciples – We focus on making disciples, knowing that when we have obedient disciples, we will have churches that influence their communities and beyond. It’s a movement that will grow as these local churches send their own people out to disciple others. SEND values national leadership; churches, institutions and training schools established by SEND are handed over to local leaders as soon as possible. Disciples become disciple makers, trained leaders train the next generation, and some of those who were touched by SEND become missionaries.
