It was 1982 and the missions agency Greg Livingstone was recruiting for couldn’t handle any more new missionaries. It was then that Greg, soon-to-be founder of Frontiers, realised God was calling him to a new challenge: to go where the need was greatest and help reach all Muslim peoples with the redemptive message of Jesus Christ.
“Greg, you must stop recruiting; we’re full. We’re getting swamped with applicants.”
Greg envisioned a new movement committed to bringing the Good News to the least reached corners of the world. He pictured a wave of people willing to go to some of the most challenging places to share Jesus Christ’s message of salvation with Muslims. And so, Frontiers was born.
Frontiers now sends workers from 30 countries across six continents. Through recruiting, training, sending, and serving church-planting teams, Frontiers is helping catalyse reproducing movements to Christ among Muslims.
With love and respect, we’re inviting all Muslim peoples to follow Jesus—and dreaming of the day we’ll see the Good News brought to every tribe, language, people, and nation (Revelation 5:9).
