The Center for Strategic Missions


Our goal is to make Christ known to the  least reached. The world is changing and the need for rethinking missions has never been more important. Reaching the most strategic and least reached peoples of the world is going to take all of us. It is no longer missions from the west to the rest, it’s people from everywhere to everywhere. We need the whole church, bringing the whole gospel, to the whole world. Biblical principles and Christ like people are needed in the each of the seven spheres of societal influence.

  4. Government
  5. Media
  6. Celebration (Arts, Entertainment, and Sports)
  7. Economics (Business, Science, and Technology
