We exist to catalyze disciple-making movements in North America among the unreached.
We are a network of disciple-makers among the local and global Church residing in North America. We reach for the unreached by equipping diverse teams of obedient followers of Jesus to pursue disciple-making movements. We want to see Kingdom transformation multiply to the ends of the earth.
What We Do
- We make disciples among the unreached living in North America.
- We equip the local and global Church in North America to make disciples.
- We pursue a spiritual posture that will lead to disciple-making movements.
1. Among the Unreached
We holistically serve refugees, international students, and economic immigrants from unreached places who have come to North America. We minister by meeting a variety of physical needs and looking for opportunities to start discovery Bible studies with those who are spiritually interested.
Many of the locations people come from like North Africa, the Middle East and East Asia are challenging for Christian missionaries to enter. Yet God is bringing these people to our cities and neighborhoods.
God is moving the unreached to America so they can be reached! Consider giving a financial gift to help our full-time missionaries meet needs among these communities.
2. Among the Local and Global Church
We equip people from all varieties of churches in North America to make reproducing disciples. We come alongside the global church that is near-culture to the unreached populations we want to see reached. We help them develop a vision and basic tools for reaching those they are uniquely positioned to reach. We help predominantly Western churches develop cross-cultural ministries to the unreached as well as train people considering moving overseas as missionaries!
Are you or your church looking for help making disciples in the diverse communities that you find yourself in? Consider talking with our trainers to see if there is a way we could help you take the next step on your disciple-making journey.
3. Spiritual Posture
We believe that a movement of prayer will always precede a disciple-making movement. We invest in prayer initiatives that unify our cities and multiply intercession for the unreached.
God can start a disciple-making movement in North America if we ask Him for it. Will you join us in asking?
Who We AreWhat We Believe
We highly value working with the diverse body of Christ who may differ with us on “open-handed” issues.
We are operationally directed by a Strategic Leadership Team that is comprised of leaders across Forefront locations. We currently operate in Dallas/Fort Worth, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Memphis and Northwest Arkansas where we have multiple City Directors serving. We intentionally have not listed the names of staff to protect their security.
If you have any questions at all we are just an email or call away! We work with many like-minded groups in each of our locations. If you’d like to explore partnership in some capacity give us a shout!
As participants moved back to the United States, it became apparent that we should increase our efforts to reach the unreached in North America. This happened in the midst of record-breaking numbers of international students and a global refugee crisis the media was just beginning to cover. God was clear. He was (and still is) moving people from unreached places to cities across the United States in an unprecedented way. Reaching these individuals became our sole focus as an organization. God has been extremely gracious and we have seen great things happen. While there has been much development within Forefront, we have never lost sight of seeing God glorified among the unreached and doing everything we can to see followers of Jesus equipped to reach them.
