The Million Village Challenge for Churches and Pastors

Do more with your mission dollars. Move beyond projects in a single village to Christ-centered transformational movements that sweep the countryside.

The mission of the Million Village Challenge is to equip and mobilize the church globally to ignite Christ-centered transformational movements in a million villages. Our members (all certified trainers) represent more than 965 organizations in 138 countries. Wherever your church might be going in pursuit of poverty alleviation and Gospel transformation, we can help you get there. Here are some of the resources we can provide specifically for local churches:

  • An online Learning Center as an aid to overworked mission pastors and volunteer mission leaders who want to educate their missions teams and envision their churches for Christ-Centered transformational movements.
  • Training for your mission partners in their own language almost anywhere in the world.
  • The most comprehensive curriculum available to the church for transformational community development with more than 15,000 lesson plans, including training for workers and volunteers as well as lessons for use in the community covering evangelism and discipleship, disease prevention, agriculture, income generation, education, social issues, and much more.
  • Guest Speakers for your mission celebrations.
  • Opportunities to leverage your mission dollars through partnerships that empower nationals to multiply their success to more communities.

The Pledge

We believe that the Gospel of Jesus is good news to the poor.
We hear Jesus saying, “Whatever you do to the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you do to me” (Matthew 25:40). Jesus feels their struggle and calls us to respond to their pain.

Therefore, we commit to support efforts among the poor
that make disciples, address the root causes of human suffering, lift communities out of cycles of poverty and disease and multiply that success to communities around.
