A GATHERING OF KINGDOM WORKERS

REACH brings together Christian workers from all walks of life. Farmers, businessmen, and young men and women share the vision and link arms with missionaries in Belize, food distributors in the Ukraine, school teachers in city missions, teachers and students in Bible institutions, chiefs in boys’ camps, and producers and distributors of Christian literature. We are praying that this gathering of people - and the resulting outflow of ministry - will bring glory to God and see the furtherance of His purposes for our time.

"The Economic Model of Higher Education Was Already Broken. Here's Why the Pandemic May Destroy It for Good." (Zachary Karabell, TIME, 27 August 2020)
