Purpose

Since 2009, Reaching & Teaching has worked to meet the enormous need for healthy churches and theological training around the world through long-term sending and short-term training. Our missionaries are committed to seeing biblical churches established that prioritize covenant membership and expositional preaching led by qualified elders.


Mission statement

Reaching & Teaching aims to make mature disciples, establish healthy churches, and train local leaders. Our mission is to advance the gospel worldwide through long-term missionary mobilization, short-term theological training trips, ministry internships, and strategic church partnerships.


Statement of faith

Reaching & Teaching operates within the bounds of three statements of belief, with all aspects of the ministry being in accordance with the New Hampshire Confession (1853) Revised, the Nashville Statement, and the Danvers Statement. All Reaching & Teaching missionaries, staff, trip participants, and field partners must adhere to each of these three statements of faith.

We believe the marks of a healthy church are expositional preaching, sound doctrine, biblical understanding of the gospel, biblical understanding of conversion, faithful evangelism, meaningful membership, church discipline, biblical discipleship, and leadership. We believe that these marks are biblical and therefore transcend geography, culture, and history. - Pulled from 9Marks of a Healthy Church, by Mark Dever

We appreciate The Southgate Fellowship statement and encourage churches to interact with the document and consider its missiological implications. We believe the Lord is free to move and multiply His kingdom as He wills, and yet we affirm that throughout the course of church history, He has normally used the ordinary means of grace to advance his kingdom. Our missionaries do not ascribe to or practice rapid and pragmatic movement methodologies because of our convictions regarding the local church.

History

For the first four years, Reaching & Teaching focused exclusively on short-term theological training trips. We started with a single site in Ecuador and we now have sent teams to over 60 sites around the world. We've since provided teaching to thousands of pastors and church leaders.

In 2013, Reaching & Teaching began serving as a sending agency for long-term missionaries. We now have missionaries serving around the globe, on five different continents. Our missionaries are engaged in a variety of contexts in order to make mature disciples, strengthen churches, and train pastors and church leaders.

We have a stateside team of staff members who facilitate the work of the ministry and provide valuable support to our field personnel.
