Our Vision

We go to places where Jesus communities do not yet exist. We speak and serve in culturally relevant ways. We put love in action and we do it to reach people with the good news of Jesus.

Global Partners

Ward supports over 60 missionaries and other global partner organizations. Information about our partners is available at our Missions Wall just inside Entry 1, or on our beta Ward Serves the Nations website.
