In the spirit of Matthew 28:19, we seek to participate in the Church’s global mission to make disciples of all nations. This mission is what informs CrossWay’s support of our global missionary partners.
Our missionaries are dedicated to taking the gospel of Jesus to the nations, both here in the USA and abroad.
