A New Forward Thrust for World Missions

Renewal of missionary interest in America is the objective of the Mission Mobilization Division of USCWM. Mission Mobilization has set out to recruit one million World Christians.

Other objectives are a million prayer warriors and a 50% increase in giving to evangelical mission agencies and churches.

Dedicated personnel will assist participating organizations.

Churches all over the country have expressed interest in our help for the purpose of developing their missions program.

We would like to see the Lord raise up several thousand newmission workers in the next 5 years. Many countries, like China, formerly closed to missions, are undergoing tremendous changes which may result in new efforts for evangelization.

Welcome to a new forward thrust in the great commission of Jesus Christ.

Dr. Ralph Winter early stated a vital purpose of the United States Center for World Mission when he said, "Let's rush out to the churches with our arms full of good things."

A new USCWM catalog is in preparation to fulfill that goal. Being assembled by David Cashin, the catalog describes and offers services, speakers, features, publications, and resource information in the world of missions.

Catalog structure will reflect organizational divisions of the Center: Strategy, Mobilization, Training, Services, Personnel. Pictures and biographical sketches are included.

Churches and mission agencies will find the publication a valuable resource for awakening missionary concern.

Of particular interest is the film "Penetrating the Last Frontiers". Having logged 2000 showings worldwide, this film has proved to be one of our best tools to renew concern for the 2.5 billion hidden people.
