World Outreach International exists to impact Least Reached People groups with the Good News of Jesus Christ. WOI has five major ministry focuses through which the Gospel is being established among Least Reached People groups. Using the acronym REACH, they are:

R Raising Leaders
E Evangelism and Church Planting
A All Nations Mobilisation
C Children’s Ministries
H Humanitarian Aid

WOI focus on peoples within the main cultural and religious blocs who lack indigenous communities of believers able to effectively evangelise their own people group. Our personnel are involved in practical care, evangelism and church planting ministries which combine for transformation of communities and people groups; as well as training and equipping of pastors, leaders and children’s workers among the least reached.
