The missions world can be complex and quite confusing. There are long lists of questions, endless applications, hundreds of organizations. How do you know where to begin? Where do you get started?
The heart of Cafe 1040 is to see disciples made among every people. But we know in order for that to happen, there have to be missionaries among these people to tell the story of Jesus to people who have never heard it before.
We know that there are a lot of obstacles that keep people from becoming a missionary. Which organization do you go with? Can you have student debt? What if I’m single? How do I learn a language? Who will be my teammates? Why does it feel like missions organizations are trying to find reasons not to send me?
We know the gap from sitting in a pew of the church to living among an unreached people group is huge. It’s overwhelming and quite daunting.
This overwhelming gap is what we want to change. We want to come alongside you in your pursuit to obey what God is doing in your heart. We want to give you time overseas among people who have never heard the story of Jesus before. We want to identify obstacles that will try to keep you from going long-term overseas and help you overcome those. We want to help explain and simplify the process of applying with missions organizations. All for the goal of seeing you confidently follow and obey whatever God has for you.
We are committed to empowering the emerging generation of missionaries to tell the story of Jesus where it has never been told.
