How We Work

This page is also available in: DeutschEspañol

As we share the gospel and make disciples among unreached people groups around the world, SEND International stresses these four areas (click below for more information on each): 

SEND missionaries live out the gospel in front of their neighbors. To do this, they learn the language well and live among the people they hope to reach.

SEND understands that it takes people from all nations to reach all nations. It’s part of our history: Some of SEND’s earliest missionaries were Asians who returned home after World War II to share the gospel with their war-ravaged fellow countrymen. We continue to be intentionally multiethnic and multinational, collaborating with sending offices and partner agencies around the world to send disciple-makers to the unreached. 

SEND believes strongly that teams are a highly effective way to engage unreached people. While all SEND missionaries serve on a team, the way the team functions depends on the team’s assignment and location. Some teams work very closely together on the same project and ministry while other teams work more independently but check in with each other regularly.
