Reaching Souls International was founded in 1986. Our goal has always been to see as many people saved in the least amount of time by using the most efficient means available.
What we do is very simple. As you read this, more than 1,500 evangelists, or National Missionaries, are being fully funded in the mission field by Reaching Souls…and the mission field is right where each evangelist lives, whether that be in Africa, India, or the island nation of Cuba. These evangelists know where to preach, because they are preaching to their neighbors. There are no such things as language barriers or cultural miscues, because the language and culture is their own. Follow up with new Christians is simple and discipleship is natural, because those being saved are their friends, cousins, grandparents, and fellow citizens.
Our toughest job is finding faithful people to become National Missionaries. Several times a year we go through an interview process with hundreds of candidates. Each evangelist is vetted, interviewed, and evaluated by Reaching Souls to make sure they are faithful, capable, and on fire for evangelism. Once they make it through the interview process, they become National Missionaries. We provide each National Missionary with training, a bike, portable speakers, financial support, and accountability.
In 2014, these National Missionaries led 6,004,105 people to Jesus, planted 2,915 new churches, and our cost per salvation was $0.55. In other words, for every $0.55 spent by Reaching Souls, an individual came to know Jesus. Reaching Souls National Missionaries are truly front line warriors for the Kingdom of Jesus Christ…and they are winning.
The orphan crisis in Africa seems to be an unstoppable epidemic sweeping the entire continent. Civil war, the scourge of HIV/AIDS, and malaria destroy families on a second-by-second basis in Africa.
We are taught that true religion is to minister to the orphans and widows. Due to the incredible size of the orphan problem in Africa, we had to come up with a new plan…a plan that would change generations rather than just change the lives of a few children. Not only that, but the plan had to be efficient and cost effective. Reaching Generations is each of those things.
