Our mission is to:
We combine practical service and gospel witness.
We are a team family whose desire is to make Jesus known among unreached Muslims.
Bible study, prayer, and worship are a regular part of our team life.
We seek to affirm one another. Each person has gifting, skills, and abilities that can be used to proclaim Christ among Muslim peoples.
We value flexibility. Everyone is encouraged to minister and serve in the manner best suited to them.
We aim to be courageous and go to the most difficult and challenging places, as well as the easier places.
We are eager to learn from others about how we can better minister and serve.
We value churches and other mission agencies and seek to work and minister together with them wherever possible.
We value accountability because we all have weaknesses and shortcomings.
We seek to be humble and non-patronising in our practical service and spiritual ministry.
“Missions are a movement from the fellowship of believers to those outside this fellowship of faith…to all who stand outside this fellowship, whoever and wherever they may be.” G. G. Baeta
ReachAcross was one of the first mission agencies established for the sole purpose of reaching unreached Muslims.
We have considerable experience in the Middle East, parts of East and West Africa, South Asia, and in some of our ‘western’ countries.
We have worked, and continue to do so in some of the most difficult locations among unreached Muslim people groups.
We are eager to follow God’s leading to work among unreached Muslims wherever they may be found.
We welcome new initiatives from new members.
Be decided together with you and a National Director.
Be flexible so that it can fit in with your other obligations.
There are many ways by which we seek to share the gospel with Muslims and to serve them.
These will vary according to circumstances and personal gifting and ability.
Some general principles and guidelines we follow are:
ReachAcross is a relatively small mission agency. This gives us some distinct advantages:
However, being small also has some disadvantages. We do not have all the resources or sophistication of larger agencies.
We compensate for this by…
This way of working allows us to choose among the best training and services that are available and also enables us to be very flexible in the timing, preparation, and placement of our mission workers.
ReachAcross uses a team leadership model.
Each team has a leader or leaders.
However, the team together makes decisions that affect the team as a whole.
ReachAcross’ leadership is decentralised.
Our Fields are led by those on the field.
Our Sending Bases are led by those at the sending bases.
Our International Executive, which makes decisions for ReachAcross as a whole, has representation from our Fields and Sending Bases.
The amount of support a person needs to raise is…
Normally 10% of each mission worker’s support is used for administration, member care, and other services.
All our National and International Office finances are properly examined or audited.
ReachAcross works in areas of the world that regularly experience crises.
We have developed comprehensive security policies, guidelines, and procedures for such situations.
“My short-term service has been a further confirmation of my long-term passion to be a missionary to the unreached Muslim world in the future”
“In these times it is even easier for everyone to engage in the great commission and help isolated Muslims follow Jesus. Glory to God who put us here for such a time as this!”
“I am really grateful for the friendships I have with women, children and families from many countries. The greatest honour though is not just knowing them but actually being reminded that they see me as part of their families”
