Vision TripGain EXPOSURE to God’s heart for the nations and a PASSION to raise up laborers for the unreached harvest field. EXPERIENCE either week alone or both weeks to help cast VISION for future teams to go utilizing creative access.
As a team, you will spend your days getting exposure and vision for God’s heart surrounding each country and the need to send laborers to this plentiful harvest. You will spend time with unreached people to learn about their culture and spiritual background, connect with current workers who are using creative access opportunities, and consider what it would look like to send more laborers to this location in the future.
Middle East Location: 7.16.17 – 7.22.17
7 million unreached people // 14 unreached people groups
10/40 window // 0.28% evangelical
Located in an extremely strategic area in the Middle East and among the ancient lands of Gilead, Ammon, Moab, and Edom. A gateway to the Muslim world. Over 1 million Syrian refugees have fled their war-torn country to seek safety here. A long history of refugees from across the Middle East have settled in this country. A vast majority of the population is unreached. An upheaval of violence has opened many hearts to be ready to examine Isa al-Masih (Jesus the Messiah) for the first time.
Central Asia Location: 7.22.17 – 7.29.17
5 million unreached people // 26 unreached people groups
10/40 window // 42% evangelical
Diverse ethnically and culturally, Central Asia has a unique blend of Muslim natives and Orthodox Russians. Very few have ever known an evangelical Christian and they are in desperate need of truth and light. Hospitable and family centered, Central Asians are loyal to their heritage, which means faith and culture are one and the same.

Our training focuses on experiential learning that utilizes several different methods to help participants internalize material. It is not our desire to simply teach concepts or theories, but to train in such a way that each participant can really grasp the content on a personal level.
Training is facilitated by local Team Directors while the content itself primarily comes from a variety of sources including experienced missionaries, pastors, partner ministry staff, professors, books, articles, podcasts and Forefront staff members.
