What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The people and places of the 10/40 Window have least access, freedom, and opportunity to know Jesus. We at 10/40 Connections seek to bless and transform these communities by the power of Jesus Christ. God initiated a strategy to reach the world – the Church! So, 10/40 seeks to plant churches among the least reached, who will then bless their communities and demonstrate the peace and the power that Jesus offers. Sustainable change takes place through planting churches. 10/40 works in partnership with indigenous ministries to plant churches and to help cp movements take place among least reached groups. With training, tools and tangible strategies, we incorporate church planting into every 10/40 project. Fighting the injustice of human trafficking leads to church planting. Developing leaders, installing water wells, speaking up for the pre-born, empowering women, cataract surgeries, literacy training, and short-term teams –all lead to ch planting because God cares for the whole person.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Media and Agriculture to East Asian minority groups

These strategies seek to access least reached groups through spiritual needs of the Gospel through media and felt needs of agriculture.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Slum revitalization in India addresses the issue of poverty with a holistic approach through starting schools in slums. Children receive education, daily food, medical check-ups, love and encouragement from their teachers, and Christian songs and stories.  Each school of 30 kids costs $4,000 per year to run.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Parents

Install bore wells 120-180 feet reaching clean drinking water for unaccessed villages of North India.  Relationships are built with local leaders and they provide concrete and public land while we provide the bore well.  Through this shared partnership, ownership is achieved for the village and they take care of the borewell.  Each well serves between 300-1,000 people and costs $885.

Population(s) Served
Indigenous peoples

At border crossings in Nepal, many young girls and women are trafficked into India.  We have established 6 surveillance centers to detect possible young women who are victims of trafficking. We combine rescue at the border with vocational skills to high risk communities, as well as skill training for women who must go to the recovery homes for a time. This strategy enables us to extend both the justice and hope of Christ.  A new border station hires 3 full-time workers and a part-time sewing instructor and costs $9,500 per year.

Population(s) Served
Victims and oppressed people
Women and girls

Equipping people as church planters helps address both the spiritual and the physical needs in North India. Gathering them into house groups results in a great blessing to their community.  We focus on equipping women who can use their spiritual gifts of evangelism and planting churches. 

Change often comes in powerful and overt ways affecting morality, hygiene, education, and behavior.  One equipping seminar for 40 participants costs around $2,000.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

• Multiply believers – Recognize true felt needs at grassroots level and through meeting these needs increase access to the Gospel for the least reached, resulting in transformed communities and warm-hearted disciples.
• Multiply leaders – Empower and equip godly and gifted women and men as church planting change agents.
• Multiply churches – Instill the DNA of multiplication within house churches. Aim for the 4th generation.
• Multiply movements – Calling on and relying on the Holy Spirit, we desire that contagious and joyful church planting movements cross-pollinate into other unreached groups and spread like wildfire.

In the nations where we labor, we aim to see:
• 100,000 new believers in the next 5 years
• 10,000 new leaders equipped and released
• 100 unreached people groups with multiplying churches
• 10 church planting movements

In all of our projects and relationships we seek to demonstrate an ethos of humility, integrity, simplicity, and generosity.

• Leadership Development/House Church Equipping – The fastest growing churches in the 10/40 Window meet in homes. House churches represent the primary New Testament model and they still multiply the church powerfully 2,000 years later.
• Starting Schools and Literacy – Education gives access to families and blesses entire communities. Teachers are equipped as church planters.
• Community Development – Pro-Life curriculum informs villagers of value of women and the pre-born. Installing water wells promotes life, hygiene, and safety. Livestock raising moves our projects to sustainability from local sources.
• Rescue, Rehabilitate, and Restore At-Risk Women – Anti-trafficking effort rescues women at international borders, safe house protects, vocational training equips, spiritual counseling heals.
• All of our programs contain both word and deed components.

• Strong field relationships – Over the past 20 years we have developed deep friendships with local field partners. Much trust has built in these years. Currently we have 8 trusted national partners.
• Network of field associates – For our ch planting work in one area we have 68 regional leaders. In another area we have 48 leaders. In three other nations we have 7 leaders, 10 leaders, and 4 leaders. These leaders are themselves planters and they also oversee hundreds of grassroots planters.
• Emphasis on prayer and reliance on Holy Spirit – Monthly prayer letters for the past 20 years, prayer teams on-site and remote, realizing that the only lasting fruit comes through God’s intervention in these spiritually deep regions.
• Committed church partners and involved individual partners – Not only our prayer support, but broad financial support. Our finances come from 60% individuals, 20% churches, 20% foundations.
• Oversight from involved board – We are blessed with experts in legal/financial skill, ministry heart, generous giving/mobilization, and high integrity.

• Leadership Dev/CP – In last 5 years we have equipped 3,750 leaders who have planted 5,000+ house churches (hc's are least 10/adult/baptized) of multiple generations among 53 people groups. These hc’s are not reported among any other groups, but they are “triple-verified.”
NEXT – In the next 5 years we plan to increase these results by 50%.


• Education – In last 10 years we now have 28 schools and 22 of them are 100% self-sustaining from local sources. Daily we feed and educate 1,235 students. At this time there are over 2,500 believers and 215 house churches started among 23 people groups.
NEXT – In the next 5 years we plan to start another 10 schools and see 90% of them sustained locally.


• Community Development – In the last 5 years we have had over 200 trainings and 8,000 participants in our pro-life seminar, 1 new maternity home constructed, 13 babies born and adopted, 125 bore wells installed helping 60,000 people have clean water, 375 successful cataract surgeries, and these projects are among another 18 unique people groups.
NEXT – In the next 5 years we plan to streamline our process, continue the work, and increase our local and regional leadership teams.


• Rescue and Rehabilitate – In the last 5 years we have had 650+ border rescues, 20,000 counselled at the borders, 1 new safe house constructed (40 beds), and 200 house churches planted by women rescued, restored, and returned to their villages.
NEXT – In the next 5 years we plan to maintain the border surveillance, increase disciple-making, and move this project to 100% local sustainability.
