Reaching & Teaching aims to make mature disciples, establish healthy churches, and train local leaders. Our mission is to advance the gospel worldwide through long-term missionary mobilization, short-term theological training trips, ministry internships, and strategic church partnerships.
Since 2009, Reaching & Teaching has worked to meet the enormous need for healthy churches and theological training around the world through long-term sending and short-term training. Our missionaries are committed to seeing biblical churches established that prioritize covenant membership and expositional preaching led by qualified elders.
For the first four years, Reaching & Teaching focused exclusively on short-term theological training trips. We started with a single site in Ecuador and we now have sent teams to over 60 sites around the world. We've since provided teaching to thousands of pastors and church leaders.
In 2013, Reaching & Teaching began serving as a sending agency for long-term missionaries. We now have missionaries serving around the globe, on five different continents. Our missionaries are engaged in a variety of contexts in order to make mature disciples, strengthen churches, and train pastors and church leaders.
We have a stateside team of staff members who facilitate the work of the ministry and provide valuable support to our field personnel.
