Deploying Indigenous Cross- Cultural Missionaries
With the Global Population now sitting at a whopping 7.6 billion people, with 2 out of every 5 people who have never heard the gospel message of salvation and the forgiveness of sins, recruiting and deploying an army of indigenous cross-cultural missionaries is mission critical.
By 2041, the global population will reach 9.3 billion; that’s 1.7 billion more in just a few years. Now more than ever, a focused missional strategy that deploys indigenous cross-cultural missionaries is indispensable in fulfilling the Great Commission.
With its current Missions forms and formulas, the American Church cannot keep up with the global population growth. Even if it were to train and deploy another 125,000 missionaries, adding them to the current 127,000 Western missionaries, it wouldn’t be enough.
We need new missional models and mission paradigms if we are to remain active partners with the Holy Spirit in this 21st century in the accomplishment of the Great Commission.
This is why Crossroads, from its inception, made recruiting, training, and deploying indigenous cross-cultural missionaries a core outcome of its missional strategy. Our national partners and indigenous cross-cultural missionaries work primarily among unreached and unengaged people groups in limited and restricted access countries.
With this focus on recruiting and training national partners and indigenous cross-cultural missionaries.
