Every day, 66,000 people from unreached people groups die having never heard the Word of God. Today, 40% of all the people groups, or nations, in the world remain unreached. World Mission seeks to fulfill the Great Commission by providing the Word of God in an audio format to oral learners living in unreached people groups.

We define the unreached as a people group among which there is no indigenous community of Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize without outside assistance. Following the Holy Spirit's lead, our ultimate objective is to see these lost souls come to Christ and begin an indigenous church-planting movement.

Prayerfully led by the Word of God and following the Holy Spirit's leading, our ultimate objective is to fulfill the Great Commission by seeing the lost develop a meaningful relationship with Christ. We strive to be focused and disciplined; fulfilling our mission will always receive the best of our time, energy and resources. We seek to always maintain positive attitudes, building team members up and never speaking thoughtless words about one another. We believe the gospel is most effectively presented in a holistic context and that national leaders led by the Holy Spirit are the most effective ground laborers to implement our mission and engage unreached peoples. We welcome volunteers who are led to serve at World Mission and will provide a positive environment for them to use their gifts.

Mission statement

World Mission delivers the Word of God in audio format to oral learners living in unreached people groups. We believe that it is our responsibility as Christians to follow the Great Commission, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:19-20). While it is always our desire to reach everyone, anywhere, we specifically focus our efforts on reaching the Unreached; those throughout the world who have never had the opportunity to hear the gospel and accept Jesus Christ.

Program accomplishments


Your financial support enables us to continue to reach unreached people groups with the gospel message, allowing those who might otherwise never hear to learn about Jesus' love and saving grace. Each Treasure costs around $50 but can reach approximately 144 people! We also welcome donations of lightly-used, quality clothing and household goods at our thrift stores.
