. Since beginning in 1998, World-Wide Church Planters has helped missionaries and nationals start over 800 new churches and has seen over 50,000 people pray to receive Christ. We are aware that we do not “start new churches” in only 1-2 weeks overseas. We do however, initiate projects in which a team of people (missionaries, nationals, soul-winners from American churches, and our organization) partner together to start new churches. We also know that individual churches can use this model to initiate church starts around the world.
