World Missions at Second

This is a very exciting time to be involved in world missions! Urbanization and globalization have opened doors to communicating the Gospel and sharing resources unlike any time in our history. While much of this change can be mind-boggling, it ultimately represents a strategic time to be fully engaged in world missions.  

Our goal is to identify strategic fields and ministries and to partner with those involved in advancing the Gospel in those areas. We seek to call, train, and send missionaries to the field, as well as partner with national and international workers involved in that same endeavor.   

Below are the seven strategic regions of the world in which we focus these efforts: 

  • Africa
  • Europe
  • Middle East
  • Central and South Asia
  • East Asia
  • Southeast Asia
  • Central and South America

Read more about one of these seven regions of the world in this feature article about 2PC missionary Faith Blanchard Ludanga, published in our 2022 World Missions Annual Report.
