The Spiritual Need in the United States

The United States was built on principles of justice, equality and liberty, paving the way for the religious freedom that is experienced today. Known primarily as a Christian nation, 77% of its population of 336 million people consider themselves followers of Christianity. Yet, according to the Hartford Institute of Religious Research, less than 18% of Americans attend church, and less than five percent of churches reproduce or multiply.

In fact, the US is becoming more unchurched—and unreached—at a faster rate than ever before. As the nation becomes an increasingly post-Christian, post-church society, research from the International Mission Board states that of the 502 people groups living in the US, more than 184 of them are considered unreached people groups.

The US has led the world in sending overseas missionaries for decades, but these statistics are reflective of an urgent need here at home—a need that ABWE is committed to meeting.

Church Planting In United States

Since 1927, we’ve been helping churches equip their missionaries for cross-cultural service. Now, we’re also offering our decades of expertise by giving local churches the tools they need to be effective disciple makers, reaching the unreached through church planting in the United States.

Our missionaries partner with local churches throughout the country and use our Good Soil Evangelism and Discipleship tools to help church leaders raise up a new generation of Christ followers. By empowering churches through our Heart, Mind, and Soul Seminars, we equip Christians with the confidence to share the love of Jesus with those around them. The EveryEthnē initiative exists to be on mission with North American churches to reach diverse people groups through a disciple-making movement—it is our team’s vision to give every person in the US, from any nation, repeated opportunities to see, hear, and respond to the good news.

The time is ripe for us to come alongside American churches in our pursuit of the Great Commission—helping them reach the people groups in their neighborhoods and training them to make disciples and plant churches. Will you join us?


We'd love to talk with you about how God is leading you.
