Reaching Souls Receives Top Financial Accountability Award
We recognize that God owns everything, and He blesses those who follow Him so they, in turn, can bless others. For that reason, we are extremely aware of how we use God’s money and we desire to use every cent to its maximum extent. By following God’s plan in 2 Timothy 2:2, we are maximizing every dollar.

Financial accountability and integrity are core values of Reaching Souls International. A partnership between ministry and givers requires trust, and we are committed to being trustworthy. For that reason we willingly submit ourselves to independent agencies for the purpose of financial accountability including the ECFA, GuideStar, Charity Navigator, and an annual independent financial audit which is made publicly available.

Why work where we work?
During that same period of time, Reaching Souls has baptized more than 3,300,000 people.
Reaching Souls works in developing nations where hope is needed most. For example, we currently work in 8 nations in Sub-Saharan Africa...the poorest region in the world. It is a region where 1 in 4 people are lacking enough food to eat on a daily basis and 1 in 9 children die before the age of 5. Life expectancy is among the world’s lowest at 59 years of age.
But there is hope. These people are placing their faith in Jesus Christ. Right now, the harvest is ripe, but the harvest only lasts for a season. For that reason, Reaching Souls is supplying as many laborers as we possibly can to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to those who desire and need hope most.
Follow-up is key, and for that reason, Reaching Souls has planted more than 16,381 churches since 2004.
Our purpose is to reach the maximum number of people for Christ, in the least amount of time possible, using the most efficient means available.
All contributions are tax deductible to the extent the law allows and will be used to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Should any project be over-subscribed, excess funds will be channeled to other essential ministry needs.
Over the past 10 years, Reaching Souls has seen more than 26,500,000 people come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

The true test of a successful mission project is what takes place after the missionaries have returned home. When our short-term mission projects end, the work of evangelism is just beginning.
Reaching Souls is able to avoid the overhead, expense, and bureaucracy typically needed to establish a missionary in a foreign land by empowering evangelists who are already there.
Reaching Souls takes multiple teams each year on short-term missions projects where we train faithful men and women to evangelize and shepherd their own people. These pastors and pastors’ wives, who usually have no training, are provided in depth education on 20 core subjects. We follow this up with in-the-field training on personal evangelism and open-air preaching. We typically train 300 individuals at a Leadership Development Institute.

Training Indigenous Pastors
Reaching Souls selects faithful men to support as full-time evangelists in their home nations. The men selected, called National Missionaries, are already evangelists, and Reaching Souls comes alongside them providing accountability, a salary, a portable speaker system, and a bicycle so they can expand their ministry. The results are astounding. Our National Missionaries lead an average of 433 people to Jesus each month while baptizing 61.
