We believe that the local church is the hope of the world. And, since our core passion is to "to bring the revelation of God and His kingdom to unreached people" everything we do is focused on sharing the Good News and establishing healthy, reproducing, sustainable local churches. Through our "End to End Strategy" RUN provides church planters with the tools to work among unreached people with evangelism, orality, and Bible translation tools.

Mission statement

We equip the local church to: PRAY for the revelation of God and His Kingdom, RESCUE people from the evils of slavery, EMPOWER leaders with training and tools, and MULTIPLY movements that impact their world for good.

Program accomplishments

RUN has trained more than one million house church leaders to establish micro-businesses and to plant healthy, reproducing churches in some of the most restricted nations on earth.


During the winter, temperatures in parts of the Middle East and North Africa are similar to those in the U.S. Many of the thousands of at-risk boys and girls in our care have no source of heat, and most don't have adequate clothing to keep them warm and safe.

One of The Rescue Project's promises to orphaned children of war in our care is to provide them with food, water, shelter, and other essentials - including warm clothes. We need your help to provide them with items such as hats, scarves, gloves, and socks as temperatures turn frigid!
