Foreign missionaries have been active in Thailand for over 190 years, and yet the Thai people remain unreached with only 0.75% of the population count themselves as a believer in Jesus Christ. In a country of over 65 million people there are only 500,000 Christians. Only 5% of the 80,677 villages in Thailand have a church.
To change this situation, our research shows the most effective people to reach Thailand for Christ are Thai citizens. In fact Thai Christians start more churches in two weeks then 300 missionaries will start in a year. In addtion Thai Christians can plant a church for much less money than it takes for a missionary to plant a church.
That is why we know the best way to make a significant impact in reaching Thailand for Christ is to encourage, resource and enable Thai Christians to become effective church planters to their own people. This is our primary goal and purpose in all we do and why we partner with the Thai church in all our activities.
