TEAM STRATEGY

The WorldVenture team in the Philippines works primarily in four areas:

1) Educating and discipling third-culture kids (MK’s)
2) Compassion and Community Development ministries among the unloved – the urban poor, the tribal poor, and people rescued from trafficking
3) Church planting among the unchurched segments of the population
4) Training and mobilizing leaders and cross-cultural workers for the Church in Asia (Philippines and other countries)

The team partners with other organizations in pursuit of our vision of seeing individuals and communities transformed by the Lord Jesus Christ. We seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ among the unreached, unchurched and unloved segments of society, and to equip believers to carry on the work of growing the Kingdom of God in Asia. It is our desire to be catalysts of spiritual renewal and gospel movements.
