International WorkersAn international worker (IW) shares the Gospel with people around the world. The C&MA focuses on sending IWs to share the message of Jesus with least-reached people groups, people who have very little access to the Gospel.  More than 200 IWs are serving around the world right now.


The JourneyThe Global Advance Fund (GAF) sends and supports IWs. Follow the journey IWs go through, and see how your giving to GAF is part of living on mission.

CAC41% of IWs are serving in creative access countries (CAC), places where people may be imprisoned or otherwise persecuted for sharing their faith.  Information about workers in CACs, such as name and specific location, cannot always be shared, to protect the safety and security of local people.

The Five "S" Strategy is a unified, global thrust to reach least-reached people groups (LRPG) in the world. LRPGs are groups in which evangelical Christians comprise less than 2% of their population. According to Joshua Project, there are over 7,000 unreached people groups, representing 42.1% of all the world’s people groups1.
