Why We Still Send Missionaries: A VIDEO

Many American churches today are wrestling through how to best use their resources to further the gospel, and asking whether they should still be sending missionaries around the world. 

The reality is that in the U.S., we live in a land still filled with light. In the U.S., there is one full-time Christian worker for every 270 people. In the rest of the world combined, it's one in 450,000. In the Muslim world, it's more than 1.7 million. There is a difference between someone who has never heard the gospel in the U.S. and someone who has never heard the gospel in Saudi Arabia. It becomes an issue of access. No matter what we have going on in the U.S., the world still desperately needs laborers.

Watch as MTW missionaries and national partners share their perspectives on why sending missionaries to serve internationally is still vital for the growth of the global Church.

What Is Missions Like in Central Asia? (VIDEO)

Central Asia is a largely misunderstood region. It's not Russia, China, or the Middle East. It's both ancient and new. And it's unreached.
