World Mission is a non-profit Christian organization founded in 1994 to support projects that took the gospel into third-world countries. World Mission delivers the Word of God in audio format (The Treasure) to oral learners living in unreached people groups. A key component of our distribution is the relationship World Mission has with our national partners in the 10/40 Window. National partners work with indigenous churches and Christian organizations that share Treasures with people in the far reaches of the world, focusing on unreached people.
