INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES


Evagelical Presbyterian Church

World Outreach

World Outreach (WO) is the mission sending agency of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. Our principal calling is to glorify God by starting disciple-making movements among least-reached people groups, especially among Muslims. In these hard places we generally work in one of three ways...


International Theological Education Network (ITEN) 

International Theological Education Network (ITEN) focuses on theological education and leadership training for nationals. Simply put, the purpose of ITEN is to develop teachers among unreached peoples who will develop teachers among other unreached peoples. ITEN works in tandem with World Outreach church-planting efforts among unreached people groups, particularly Muslims.


Engage 2025 

Each EPC presbytery¹ launching a disciple-making movement²
among an unengaged³ Muslim people group by 2025.

The EPC’s vision for Engage 2025 is comprised of three aspects:

  1. Thoroughly evangelical: proclaiming the good news of life in Jesus;
  2. Specifically Presbyterian: through the power of churches linked by faith and geography (a presbytery!); and
  3. Desperately urgent: among people who have no intentional, witnessing Jesus-followers active among them.

A Global Alliance of Churches and Missionaries

Team Global Missions 

TEAM’s purpose is to help churches send missionaries to establish reproducing churches among the nations to the glory of God. We seek to do this wherever the most people have the greatest need in collaboration with churches anywhere.
