Ministry Initiatives

Overcoming Barriers

East-West is committed to creatively and strategically engaging the unreached with the good news of Jesus Christ. The places we work are often hostile to Christian missionaries and put government and social restrictions in place to hinder the gospel from spreading. Our ministry initiatives work around these barriers to start church planting movements in these spiritually dark areas. Below are a few examples of our current initiatives.

Women's Equipping

Women make up a significant majority of all believers, and their contribution is essential to God’s work in building the Church and reaching the lost. Our women’s training efforts impart ministry tools and biblical knowledge that equip women to grow the Church and ignite discipleship movements among the unreached.

Business Accelerating Movements

Believers with an interest and background in the marketplace are using their expertise to create and launch legitimate businesses to share the gospel and multiply disciples and churches overseas. In doing so, our missionaries and national partners have long-term platforms to support their ongoing ministry.

"JESUS" Film Projectors

All it takes is a backpack containing the equipment needed for our national partners to project the “JESUS” film on screen. This equipment enables them to carry the gospel on their backs into geographically remote areas of the world, exposing hundreds of people at a time to the story of Jesus.

What We Do

East-West’s initiatives support our vision of multiplying followers of Jesus in the spiritually darkest areas of the world. Through them, our field workers are able to enter new unreached communities to share the gospel, equip believers as people come to faith, and multiple healthy, reproducing churches.
