One Sacred Effort



Reaching the Nations in North America is a combined partnership to serve the church in North America. Our great desire is that local churches across the United States and Canada will see the need and prepare for gospel witness to the many peoples moving to our communities. This task is bigger than any one church or organization, but through cooperation a movement can begin. To that end, the following organizations are partnering together to provide vision, equipping, and resources to discover and engage people groups in North America.
