About World Outreach

World Outreach is an interdenominational faith mission, focusing on outreach to ‘least reached peoples’, and offering a channel for both churches and individual Christians to participate in a meaningful missions programme worldwide.

The mission was founded in 1932, and worked first only in Europe under the name Russian and Eastern European Mission. With the fall of the iron curtain, it changed its name to Slavic Mission, concentrating efforts on displaced Slavic peoples worldwide. From there the mission expanded into Asia as the Slavic and Oriental Mission, and in 1968 changed its name finally to World Outreach.

World Outreach UK works closely with World Outreach International based in Singapore, and with all the other national offices of World Outreach in Australia, Canada, Holland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa and the United States of America.

The Present

Over three hundred full-time personnel are serving in different World Outreach ministries today, reaching into more than 60 nations on 5 continents. For example, regular ministry is now taking place in many Indian sub-continental nations, in Indo-China, China itself and nations in north-east Asia. And from a number of World Outreach bases in Africa, our missionaries are reaching into many other nations on this continent.

The Future

We praise God for all that He has done in the past 70 years through World Outreach. But we are excited with passion and vision for what He plans to do in the near future.

We remain committed to facilitating valid and strategic ministries world-wide as well as mobilising, teaching, training and equipping others.

Loren Cunningham, founder of YWAM said, “If we are willing to give up our ‘rights’ then there are no nations of the world that we cannot go to.”

The Great Commission has not yet been fulfilled. We in World Outreach want to do our part in seeing the task completed.
