Frontier Mobilizers Engage the Global Church

More than 2,000 years after Jesus commissioned His church to take the good news to the ends of the earth, the harvest is still great, and the laborers are still few. But we believe God is raising up a new generation of laborers to take his gospel to the unreached. Today, 80 percent of the evangelical church lives outside the West, in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. This powerful part of God’s church is surrounded by hundreds of millions of people with no access to the gospel. With fewer geographic, cultural, and linguistic barriers standing between them and the unreached, these believers are strategically poised to take the gospel to those who have never heard it. But right now, this 80 percent of God’s church sends less than 20 percent of the world’s missionaries. By God’s grace, the Center for Mission Mobilization is coming alongside the global church in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America to help God’s people reach their incredible potential to share the gospel with entire people groups across the world who are unreached. With frontier mobilization teams strategically located throughout these regions, we are helping disciple African, Asian, Arab, and Latino believers to engage with the unreached around them—and ultimately see indigenously led mission sending movements to the unreached. With nearly 3 billion people still unreached with the gospel, the task is too small to do alone. We believe it will take all of God’s people working together to reach all of God’s world. Pray with us to see more mobilizers in the global church, more mission sending movements to the unreached,... read more

Raising up Missionaries from the World’s Most Islamic Country

  One might think that past persecution and living in the world’s largest Islamic country would fill Christians with fear or bitterness, but the love of Christ is compelling God’s people to share the Good News with their Muslim neighbors. Through dedicated prayer, mobilization and missions training, Indonesian missionaries have seen the number of unengaged people groups drop from 39 to 31 in just the last few years. Ryan and Jason are the CMM’s Catalytic leaders in Southeast Asia, which is home to not only millions of believers, but also many of the world’s unengaged people groups.  Our Catalytic strategy is to find where God is already awakening the church to missions and pour fuel on that fire. Whether it’s an emerging missions mobilizer or a nationally led mission agency, we come to them with open hands to share resources, connect them to other national mobilizers in the region, encourage them, and coach them through mobilization tools created by us or others. By God’s favor, we’ve seen amazing fruit from our partnership with national leaders. Leaders whom we’ve entered into a formal partnership with, we call Global Affiliates. Ananda is the CMM Global Affiliate in Indonesia. Although this role is new, we have partnered with Ananda since 2011. Ananda is regularly speaking before pastors, leaders of major denominations, mission networks and agencies. Through his strategic influence with Indonesian leaders and his promotion of CMM resources and vision, he has been able to see thousands of everyday Christians get connected to the Great Commission and numerous missionaries sent out. Our relationship with Ananda deepened in 2013 with his assistance in hosting... read more

Nigerian Children–a Formidable Mission Force

42% of Nigeria’s population is younger than 14 years old. Imagine what could be done if these children were empowered to see themselves as part of God’s global story! In July, Carissa and Karen, two of our Weave staff members, conducted a series of Big Story trainings in two regions of Nigeria. They trained 162 parents, teachers, and pastors on the importance of family mobilization. They also equipped 37 local participants to carry on the work of mobilizing families after Carissa and Karen had left. These trainees are now equipped to make world Christians out of their many children, discipling them to go, send, welcome, mobilize, and pray for unreached peoples. They are now equipped to multiply the Big Story Training throughout the region. “Children are not only a mission field,” said one participant. “They can be transformed into a formidable mission force when they are taught to embrace a biblical worldview. Their role in accomplishing God’s mission should not be underrated. They, like adults, should be involved in the task of taking the gospel to the... read more

2016 Year in Review

Greetings, friends! We are excited to share with you stories of God’s fruit. We are God’s workforce and can do plenty of great activity, but the credit for the fruit of changed lives belongs to the Lord. Our ultimate goal at the Center for Mission Mobilization is the worship of Jesus Christ. With the number of unreached vastly outweighing the number of long-term missionaries we have dedicated ourselves to mobilization, igniting mission sending movements to reach those who have not heard. We just released 2016’s annual Year in Review, and hope you will take a few short moments to look at the ways which we have encountered the favor of Jesus all over the world this year. Thank you for laboring with us in bringing the gospel to the unreached! – Steve Shadrach, Executive Director  Check out the... read more

Strategic Shepherding

Gabriel, a Frontier Mobilizer with the CMM, was living for the world rather than for God, professing with his lips but not his heart. His ascent towards healing began when his youth pastor noticed his habits and brought them into the light, boldly yet lovingly telling him that his actions did not align with what he was claiming to be, that he was a “lukewarm Christian.” Shortly after, Gabriel’s habits landed him in the hospital for a time
