Our Story

From crowds of thousands to the forgotten orphan on the street, we believe that every single person is infinitely valuable. That’s why we’ve been mobilizing everyday people to the lost and hurting around the world.
John Smithwick founded the ministry in 1998 with the vision of training and equipping the church to go to the harvest field. These opportunities and open doors will not last forever. That’s why it’s vital that we strategically position the church to reach the unreached so that generations will turn to Jesus.

At home and abroad, we know that strong, equipped leaders duplicate themselves and expand their influence for the better.

Harvest Plans are very purposeful discipleship strategies that help to establish the Gospel in an unreached region or nation.

We believe in the local church all around the world, and we have planted churches in areas where there were few or even none.

Our influence goes beyond mission trips. In the past 5 years, we’ve seen the Global Ventures TV show air in over 150 nations on 11 TV networks and The Reach Podcast continues to provide inspiring content on a weekly basis.

Our curriculum was written by Martine Smithwick and tailor-made for churches in unreached areas that are just establishing children’s ministries and don’t necessarily have resources.

Everywhere we go, we plan extensively with the local churches on the most effective long-term discipleship strategies.

Over the last few years, we’ve started facilitating clean water projects in most countries that we have mass evangelism projects because there is a great need.

As we continue to facilitate projects all over the world, it also takes a lot of diligent work at home. Our headquarters, the Center of Mass Evangelism, has a growing team who make everything happen.
