From the Coordinator: Join the Story

What an incredible privilege it is to join God’s story of redemption—not only as the objects of His love, but as those who bring His message of grace to the nations!

For the past couple of years, we have been asking PCA churches to pray for an additional 1% of their adult members to be sent as longer-term global missionaries. As we asked the church to pray, we also asked our fields, “If God were to send many more workers, what new kingdom advancing goals would you like to accomplish?”

Each of our different regions got together, prayed, dreamed, and came up with specific field goals. When we added up all the goals, this was the result: In the next 10 years, by God’s grace we would like to see 63 new countries engaged; 192 new cities engaged; 
486 new churches planted; 29 new campus locations engaged; 38 unreached people groups engaged; and 212 new church planting support ministries started. This is in addition to all that MTW is currently doing.* When we look at these goals, we recognize that only God could accomplish this.

In addition to these kingdom outcomes, each region also determined the number of field workers they would need to achieve these goals. Over the next 10 years, they are asking for 714 long-term missionaries, 271 two-year missionaries, and 855 interns. This represents over 1,800 new workers!

We know that nothing can stop God’s story of redemption. Indeed, His story continues. It continues through His Spirit working in and through us. Would you join us? Would you join Jesus? Would you join His story of redeeming the whole world?

*As of 2019, MTW was working with about 368 church plants/church revitalization works and 492 church planting support ministries in 97 countries, with 615 career missionaries and 63 two-year missionaries.

Inside MTW's Prayer Ministry (Video)

COVID-19 serves as a reminder that even more than evangelism, more than teaching, more than discipleship, prayer is the primary work.
