The Wide Open World Missions Fund was born out of a trip to South Africa in 2006. It was there that the words “the world is wide open to the gospel” were spoken by a church planter among the Zulu people. Since that time, these words continue to inspire the movement of Lifepoint’s church body towards participating in God’s redeeming work in Mid-Ohio, the Mid-West, and the World.
Since 2007, over $520,000 has been given to the Wide Open World Fund and nearly 500 short-term missionaries have been sent from Lifepoint’s church body.
In addition to the sending of short-term workers, the Wide Open World helps support 2 long-term missionary families, faculty salaries at two indigenously led seminaries abroad, local and international church plants & much more.
