North America

God calls us to make Christ known among the nations, and today, people from all nations continue to come to the US and Canada in search of a better life.

At a time when an estimated 80 percent of North American churches are plateauing or declining in attendance each year and the numbers of professing Christians continues to dwindle—we see an incredible opportunity to reach the nations right in our backyards, ministering cross-culturally, without crossing borders.

EveryEthnē exists to be on mission with the church to reach every ethnē (the Greek term for nation or people group) in North America through a disciple-making movement that multiplies leaders and churches. Our team's vision is to give every person in North America repeated opportunities to see, hear, and respond to the good news of Jesus Christ.

We do this by focusing on three main areas:

  • Church Advancement: Growing the effectiveness and capacity of churches
  • Church Mobilization: Creating a "lost-to-leading" culture for disciple-making
  • Church Multiplication: Collaborating with churches to plant churches for gospel saturation

By using our nearly 90 years of missions experience to help North American churches reproduce and make disciples among the diverse people groups right in their own backyards, we’ve seen God do amazing things, with 50 churches planted in the past 37 years.

Ministries in North America include:

  • Biblical teaching
  • Church planting
  • Cross-cultural ministries
  • Evangelism and discipleship training
  • Leadership development
  • Sports ministries
  • Student ministries
  • Team development
