Ben Ward, Director of Communications & Innovations Architect and Asia Area Director

We often say: “Our global plan for amplifying mission is based on the 5 Phases of the Missional Church.

“Phase 1 begins when a church sends missionaries into an unreached place. Missionaries learn the culture and establish relationships, both proclaiming and demonstrating the gospel. As churches form and mature, the roles of the missionary team and the sending church they represent continually change. We customize our field strategy to meet the developmental needs of the receiving church based on its current phase.
“Ultimately, the missional church reaches Phase 5—Multiplying Movements—achieving full partnership with the Global Church, increasingly amplifying mission.”
Together with the Nepali leaders, we dreamed of a day when a strong, self-supporting Nepali Church becomes a full partner with the Global Church, crossing cultural boundaries, amplifying mission in the least reached places of the earth.
Disciples making disciples. Churches planting churches. Networks of churches crossing cultural and national boundaries to start new networks of churches. Multiplying Movements—this is our end game.”
