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:
- Middle East
- Central and South Asia
- East Asia
- Southeast Asia
- Central and South America
Read more about these seven regions of the world and the missionaries we support in our World Missions Annual Report.
Pray for Our Missionaries
Start your day with prayer for our global partners, asking God to plant new gospel seeds through them. In this year’s electronic prayer tool (coming soon!), our missionaries (or sometimes a missions committee member speaking on their behalf) will personally share with you through a recorded video how you can pray for them.
Printed prayer books will also be available by request. In addition, you can register to receive prayer updates via mail, email, or text and/or you can click the “prayer” tab on the 2PC app.
