Missions Resources for Church Leaders

Your church is essential to global missions.

We believe only the local church can set apart a worker for the gospel. Only the church can identify giftedness. Only the church can judge a missionary’s calling and qualifications, because they’re mentoring them and watching their lives. And only the church can stir a zeal for missions by showing what God’s word says about his heart for the nations.

So we agree that the church is essential! And we’re here to help with your missions journey. Take a look at our mission-minded resources designed for your church and get to know ABWE and our commitment to the Great Commission.

7,000 people groups haven’t heard of Jesus. That’s over 3 billion people. But if just 10% of US evangelical churches sent one missionary, they could engage every people group. Start the conversation with your church about missions and equip your congregation to send with our SendOne Devotional and Resource Guide.

Our Values and Committments

Get Your Church Involved in Missions

Where are there unreached people in your community? Our Ministry Area Profile from EveryEthne will help your church reach the lost without crossing borders.

You may be tired of sending short-term teams with little fruit. We are too. Launch Point missions trips empower your church’s short-term teams to make a long-term impact on the field.

The real work of missions starts with prayer. Join us in praying Matthew 9:38 and mobilize your congregation to ask the Lord for workers.

Is someone in your church interested in missions? Bring them to our next Demo event and help them find their next step.

84% of pastors worldwide have no training. Attend our summit for International Theological Education and see how you can use your gifts abroad.

Even if your church isn’t ready to send a missionary, you can build a deep relationship with an overseas partner already serving Christ in a hard-to-reach country.
