Reaching the nations

The church is a powerful force. It's the vehicle that God designed to reach the nations. When the church was formed in the Book of Acts, she was a place of refuge and radical life change. And that continues to be true today.

It's through the church, the people of God, that the good news is shared, disciples are made, and the church is multiplied.

Since our beginning, East-West has been committed to the Bride of Christ. We want to see her come into her fullness–encompassing people from every people group in the world. That's why we focus on raising up national leaders who are equipped and sent out to plant healthy, reproducing churches in their unreached areas. Through these local believers, disciples are multiplying in places where the gospel has never been. 

The church planting work East-West started in Russia now encompasses nearly 50 nations and 10 world regions, and the Lord has used us to start over 189,000 new churches.
