As long as the laborers are few, the Center for Mission Mobilization is committed to sending frontier mobilizers to raise up laborers from the global church
The mission field is becoming the
Today, most missionaries are sent from
the Western church and South Korea.
However, 80% of the evangelical church lives in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. They have great sending potential.
Imagine if the entire global church were
sending to the unreached!

From the classroom to the home: The Big Story Series guides families all over the world into their role in God’s mission
“I have been doing mobilization and children’s ministry for more than two decades,” shared Nosa Tukura, Weave’s ministry partner in Nigeria. “Most available resources focus on helping children grow up and be good Christians. These resources are specifically geared toward encouraging children to be partners in fulfilling God’s mission to the least reached. They are a unique contribution to the church.”
As a ministry of the CMM, Weave has been creating groundbreaking mobilization resources for families since 2014. In that time, they have exposed parents in 10 countries to the role God has for their family in completing the Great Commission through the Big Story Training.
But there has never been a simple path for families to apply the training’s principles at home in practical ways. As Reuben Kachala, director of Frontier Mission International in Malawi, put it, “The Big Story Training does a good job of providing framework, passion, and ingredients in developing mission-minded families. Now families need a way to take that paradigm home.”
This year Weave published the Big Story Series to meet this global need and help parents live out that new paradigm with their families. This exciting new book series guides parents through the first steps in discipling their children in God’s global purposes. Families learn about God’s heart for the nations through interactive family devotions, grow in their understanding of world religions, engage with the stories of unreached peoples, and discover how to incorporate intentional habits into everyday family life that align with God’s purposes. Comprised of three books, the Big Story Series is designed to get parents started on their journey, giving them a framework for learning and discipleship that they can continue even after they’ve gone through the resources.
Zara is from an area of the Middle East where she never once encountered a Christian, church, or Bible, meaning she had no opportunity to hear the gospel. She left everything in her home country to find a better life in Germany with her 4-year-old daughter. This decision was costly, and she feels unsafe and unstable in such a foreign culture.
Northern Ethiopia, part of the 10/40 window of unreached people, is one of the most challenging areas for evangelical Christianity. Persecution and living ostracized from the society has been the story of believers in this area.
But God is at work, and opportunities to hear the good news are growing for people living there. Partnership efforts between evangelical churches and mission organizations are raising up mobilizers who are catching God’s heart for the nations with a focus on reaching the unreached in northern Ethiopia.
“Now I’m aware I am a significant part of [God’s] Great Commission, and He has purpose for each one of us,” shared Anna-Lena, a German believer.
