The BACK 40: Cultivating Christians in Remote Areas
Neglected. Isolated. Underdeveloped. Forgotten.
These are just a few of the words that describe believers in the “BACK40,” the geographically remote and under-resourced areas of the world. They need Christians who will come alongside them and share from their abundance.
There is hunger and a cry for help. Christians in BACK 40 regions across the globe have reached out to us, asking us to come to their remote areas and provide short-term training and coaching.
Landowners refer to their undeveloped land as their “BACK 40.” It’s the remote area of their property which is last to be cultivated.
In the same way, tens of thousands of our brothers and sisters in Christ are living in the “BACK 40” spiritually. Although limited by a lack of finances, resources, or geographical remoteness, they are eager to cultivate their “fields.” Investing in these hungry Christians with training, coaching, and discipleship equips them to cultivate their own spiritual health, and become servant-leaders who disciple others in their “BACK 40”.
