Global Research

We assist field workers, churches, and ministry partners to gather and analyze information to aid in the mobilization of the body of Christ and in strategic planning in order to faithfully carry out the Great Commission of Jesus to make disciples of all nations. 

Impact Communities by Supporting Ministries through Research

The purpose of field research is to perceive what the Holy Spirit is doing and where he wants to lead the body of Christ, so we can cooperate with Him and be used by God in his Harvest.

What Global Research Looks Like:

  • Gathering and Analyzing Information to Aid Mobilization
  • Strategic Planning
  • Community Surveys
  • Identify Locations Without Churches

*These are Just a Few Examples of Global Research
