Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

WorldVenture in upper Guinea is focusing on the over two million Maninka People of whom less than 150 are believers. The rest are a mix of a major religion and spirit worshipers. The considerable spiritual oppression to down right spiritual attack, remoteness, limited resources, slowness of the work and climate make this one of the highest areas of missionary attrition in the world. Yet there is a good working relationship among several missions praying and fellowshipping together including SIM, IMB, and Pioneer Bible Translators. WorldVenture believes that within this generation, we can transform this land and society. We are praying and working toward this goal. We invite committed, dedicated, evangelistically and long-term focused believers to join us.

Mission Trip Offered By WorldVenture

Billions of people don’t know Jesus. We’re not okay with that.

More than words, they are a reminder on the wall of our main office of why we do what we do. Since 1943, God has used thousands of WorldVenture workers and partners to impact millions with the good news.
We plant churches, build clinics, educate children, train leaders, provide disaster relief, combat injustice, foster the arts, and serve the poor with economic development…in Jesus name and to make disciples.
We recruit, train, and send disciples of Jesus throughout the world who sense Gods call to give their lives to share the gospel with people who have yet to hear it. And we partner with multitudes of Christ-following disciples in engaging the world for gospel impact.
Join us!
