OUR MISSION

Tom Cox World Ministries (TCWM) is committed to equipping and assisting today’s church to reach today’s world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.


WE DO THIS PRIMARILY BY...

Leveraging Kingdom Partnerships between US disciples and groups of indigenous disciples to fulfill the Great Commission within specific cultures and geographical regions (Acts 1:8) through the local Church and Church networks.


Since 1971, TCWM has been utilizing creative means to communicate the biblical message of God’s holiness, love, and grace to people world wide, and leading God’s people to do the same. We do this primarily by mobilizing committed disciples, from across the United States, on short-term mission trips.

Our trips range in focus from medical/dental/eye clinics, to remote backpacking for research of unreached people groups, to prayer walking and personal evangelism in some of the most unreached parts of the world.

TCWM has well-established, ongoing work, on four continents. Our National Partners are a key part of the strategy God is using to advance His eternal Kingdom. It is vital that we continue equipping the local church to conduct the work of the ministry of reconciliation given to all disciples of Jesus Christ.

Many of our National Partners are not able to afford theological education. However, we believe God is providing answers. We are actively seeking Spirit-filled Equippers to go and teach these brothers and sisters, pouring into them for eternal benefit.

TCWM has worked with various denominations and agencies in the past including the SBC International Mission Board (IMB). TCWM leadership regularly works closely with Kingdom-minded partners at home and abroad to discover, develop, and deploy in meaningful ways to advance the Kingdom of Christ among the nations.

We do this through "on the field" missional training, deployment logistics, and management of strategic mission points around the globe. To date, TCWM has worked in 126 countries, and among several hundred people groups.

TCWM IS COMMITTED TO DISCOVERING...

Unreached and unengaged people groups around the globe. Many people around the world have little to no access to the gospel.

Missionally motivated churches who desire to partner to engage the unreached people of the world to share the gospel and equip indigenous leaders to plant churches.Unreached and unengaged people groups around the globe.

Contextualized strategies for utilizing short-term mission teams to preach the gospel, make disciples, and help them form into local churches with Spirit-led indigenous leadership.
