World Missions Today

World MissionsIf you are considering becoming a missionary, looking for ways to qualify missionaries and missions organizations that ask you for money, lead a missionary organization, or have a general interest in world missions, including some troubling recent developments, welcome.

Ever since the Holy Spirit blocked Paul from turning east into "Bithynia" (Acts 16:7) and gave him the vision of a Macedonian man telling him to "come" (Acts 16:9) westward, the thrust of the Lord's harvest around the world has pushed largely westward, from Israel to Turkey to Europe to America to Asia and now to the Middle East. Along the way, every nation that turned to God prospered, and at the height of their prosperity, all of them, starting with Israel, turned away from God, and declined morally, socially, spiritually.

Europe is a spiritual wasteland today, America is following suit, and the apostasy in both has leavened even once faithful frontline missionary organizations, including Voice of the MartyrsOpen Doors, International Mission Board, Wycliffe Bible Translators, Wycliffe Associates, Ethnos360 / New Tribes Mission, Gospel For Asia, YWAM, and Cru: for the current status, strengths and weaknesses of each, as well as of the few that remain faithful to Christ, see missionary organizations.

In light of this apostasy and the growing number of missionaries returning early from the field, we need to change how we become and support missionaries today, and return to both the true Gospel and the true meaning of "missionary."

In China, the world's largest mission field, persecution of Christians is re-intensifying as the Chinese Communist Party uses artificial intelligence, big data and brute-force against the underground church and even the Three Self church in its bid to suffocate Christianity in China while infiltrating the West via CSSA and Confucius Institute.

Reaching the generation Z with the Gospel is a priority in America, where persecution is gaining momentum, as evidenced by the reactions to the recent martyrdom of John Allen Chau and termination of Peter Vlaming. Visitor comments and questions are welcome.
