Although HeartCry recognizes the great importance of sending missionaries from the West to the unevangelized peoples throughout the world, we believe that we are led of the Lord to support indigenous or native missionaries so that they might evangelize their own peoples. We seek to work with indigenous congregations, elders, and missionaries of integrity and faith in the unreached world to help them evangelize and plant churches among their own peoples.
It has been said that global missions is a very simple endeavor: “All that is needed is a man, called of God, sent to the place where God has called him, with the right tools in his hands.” There are countless indigenous missionaries throughout the world who are laboring faithfully in the places where God has sent them, but oftentimes they are greatly hindered by their lack of even the most basic resources. At HeartCry, we believe that an important part of our ministry and the Great Commission is to provide these indigenous missionaries with those resources that will make their ministry most effective.

At HeartCry, we believe that Church planting is the primary task of missions. There are many gifts and callings in the body of Christ, but all of them are to work together on the mission field towards the primary goal of planting a biblical church. It is one thing to do mass evangelism and to boast of the numbers of decisions; it is quite another to establish a biblical church. Read More
Many churches on the foreign field are limited in their ministry by not having an adequate meeting place, or the cost of renting prevents them from obtaining the necessary capital to purchase their own land and begin construction. HeartCry seeks to assist such churches by providing the funds necessary for the purchase of property and the building of a permanent structure sufficient for meetings. Read More
The work of indigenous missionaries is often limited by the lack of proper tools for ministry.
HeartCry seeks to provide these necessary tools so that the missionaries may fulfill the work to which the Lord has called them. Although we always seek to be cautious in designating funds to anything other than “incarnational missions,” we recognize this ministry to be nearly indispensable to the work of God, especially in some of the more remote parts of the Majority World.
