Reaching Souls International was founded in 1986 with the mission to reach the maximum number of people for Christ in the least amount of time in the most efficient way.
Simply put, as you read this, 2,000 evangelists, which we call National Missionaries, are fully funded in the mission field by Reaching Souls…and the mission field is right where each evangelist lives 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 language barriers or cultural miscues, because the language and culture is their own. Checking in 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, financial support, accountability, and equipment—like a bike and portable speakers.
In 2016, our National Missionaries led 9,492,721 people to Jesus and planted 4,958 new churches. When you combine these results with our budget, the cost per salvation was $0.37. In other words, for every $0.37 spent by Reaching Souls in 2016, 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.
Reaching Souls came up with a plan to care for orphans as the Bible calls us to do. This strategy will change generations rather than just the lives of a few children. Not only that, but it’s efficient and cost effective too.
