We live in an incredibly unique time to fulfill the great commission! Technology, migration, travel, and media has made the world more globally connected, yet culturally diverse.
Every day, millions of people are moving across the planet, and communities, cities, and countries are literally changing overnight. Most have been displaced through war, famine, persecution, racism, human trafficking, natural disaster, or forced migration. Many of them have never heard the name of Jesus and are desperately seeking help, healing, hope, purpose and truth.
In midst of this global crisis, God is opening new pathways for the church to respond to needs, share the gospel, build community, and plant churches.
