The urgency of the Gospel message is clear throughout Scripture. But, in today's world, there are many who have yet to hear it, let alone put their faith in it. We believe that shouldn't be the case. We believe nobody is more effective or efficient in reaching a people group for Christ than its own members.

We strategically support more than 2000 local church leaders with an unquenchable passion for evangelism, who already understand not only the language but also the cultural and spiritual context of their communities. By partnering with them in this way, we are able to be more efficient in spreading the Gospel, intentional discipleship, and investing in the next generation of evangelists.

Through ongoing training, financial support and accountability, we come alongside evangelists already relationally connected to the people around them with the resources they need to maximize their mission and expand the body of Christ around the world.

We believe that partnering with local leaders who are relationally connected to their communities is not only the most effective way to share the Gospel but also the most affordable. This method is strategic evangelism. Our National Missionaries are equipped with the local language and the cultural and spiritual context of their communities, which provide strong foundations for evangelism to take root and discipleship to occur naturally.

Reaching Souls International began as an answer to the prayer our founder, Jimmy Hodges, prayed over many years: that the Lord would reveal to him the most fruitful ministry strategy to reach souls for Christ. The Lord answered that prayer when Jimmy applied Paul's instructions in 2 Timothy 2:2 to communities where we could come alongside local church leaders, who are already doing their best to reach their own people for Christ. From the very beginning, this winning strategy was the blueprint for Reaching Souls.
