Partner in Evangelism
Today we are facing a world population that is approaching the 7 billion mark, and the numbers of non-Christians are still staggering:
- 865 million unreached Muslims
- 550 million unreached Hindus
- 150 million unreached Chinese
- 275 million unreached Buddhists
- 2,550 unreached tribal groups (which are mainly animistic) with a total population of 140 million
- Forming a smaller, though important, unreached group are the 17 million Jews scattered across 134 countries.
- In total, 2.7 billion people are without the knowledge of the life-changing hope and power of God’s plan of salvation.
We exist in a time when evangelistic mission is called for more than ever—in our own backyard and to the far corners of the globe. A convergence of thinking is developing between evangelists, preachers, church planters, local church ministers, and cross-cultural missiologists. The Center for Global Missions(CGM) will meet this need and be a focal point for thinking, training and resourcing.
How CGM partners with local churches to bring the gospel to the nations:
- Relevant, Scholarly Research in Effective Mission and Evangelism Strategies – By plugging into the academic foundation of Regent’s School of Divinity and mobilizing and harnessing the spiritual and intellectual drive of its students and faculty, CGM acts as a catalyst for the research and development of effective mission and evangelism strategies.
- Practical Application and Equipping for Mission Outreach – CGM serves as a resource for churches and individuals to respond to God’s call to reach the nations. CGM provides information on world cultures, mission strategies and current global trends as well as training in engaging in cross-cultural ministry.
“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’”
