Why tentmaking?


2000 years after Jesus told his followers to make disciples of all nations, there is still a great deal of work that remains before the task is completed. According to the Joshua Project, four out of ten people groups are to be considered unreached by the Gospel. Most of them live in countries where religious freedom is limited and where traditional missionaries have no access. Christian professionals, students and businesspeople are, however, welcome everywhere.

Christian workers have gained a good reputation in many countries worldwide. This means that even in nations which persecute those who want to follow Jesus, both governments and employers are keen on recruiting Christian workers. We believe these are doors that God has opened in order for the Gospel to be known everywhere.

In his letter to the Romans, the tentmaker Paul writes, “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” (Rom 10:14, NIV). Are you willing to move to another culture in order to make Jesus' name known in new places?
