“Transforming communities among the unreached by planting Biblical churches.”
OUR VISION: “80 Church-Planting Movements by 2015”
Serving with Team Expansion, which strives to Transform communities among the unreached by planting biblical churches”. I currently serve as the Vice President of Outreach and Training and Chris serves in the Training Dept. I also serve as the National Coordinator for Kairos, USA. The Kairos course is a study of the “Purpose and Plan of God from Genesis to the end of the Age!” The goal of the course is the formation of truly biblical world-view and the mobilization of the church into strategic cross-cultural mission.
Currently there are 2 billion people who have NEVER heard of the love and grace of Jesus. They generally live in “creative access” countries that don’t allow missionaries. We’re working to enter these areas and start 80 Church Planting Movements by 2015--we covet your prayers! Team Expansion family currently consists of more than 350 full-time adult workers serving in 46 countries in 70 distinct church planting projects.
60 churches were planted in 2013. 920 believers were baptized into Christ, and Church Mission Attendance is up to 16,821.
There are now 15 churches planted with over 2,000 in average attendance. Over 2,000 have been baptized in the last 10 years! Venezuela has grown from 0.7% to over 10% evangelical!
Team Expansion is working to establish 80 Church Planting Movements among the unreached by 2015. To work towards that goal they will work to plant 100 churches in 2014, and see 1,000 followers baptized in Christ. They will continue to launch training programs, and train 30 missionaries.
