9 Mission Agencies to Consider
Although there is a large number of mission agencies working in North America, we have compiled a list of 9 well-known agencies that we partner with at The Mission App. This list is not in any particular order but each of these agencies does excellent work.
Global Frontier Missions
According to their website, GFM’s “passion is to make disciples who will make disciples to pray, give, go, welcome, and mobilize others strategically to ensure that the remaining 7,000 unreached people groups have access to the Good News of Jesus.”
Offering a wide variety of outreach options ranging from short-term mission trips to immersive, long-term experiences, GFM wants to fulfill the words of Romans 10:14: “And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?”
International Students Incorporated (ISI) is a network of members situated in and around colleges and universities, largely in the USA. They work with international students who come from regions who do not have access to the gospel to impact them for the Lord.
“Jesus tells us to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19-20). Each year, over 1 million international students attend our universities and colleges across the United States. God is bringing the nations to us.” – ISI website
According to their website, Communitas International operates off of these 3 core values: being “kingdom seeking, grace oriented, and people focused.”
These values dictate how the people of Communitas International goes about every aspect of their lives, some examples of which are: being innovative in how they share the gospel, strive for realness instead of performance, and practice generous hospitality.
InterAct Ministries works throughout the North Pacific Crescent, their name for the “a vast region that stretches from Siberia across the Bering Strait to Alaska into western Canada.”
