Tranzsend is committed to sharing the gospel with those who have not heard the good news of Jesus Christ.
We choose to serve in regions and contexts where fewer than 5% of the population are Christians, or where the church is too small or poorly resourced to be able to survive on its own. We work alongside other agencies and indigenous organisations to help make the gospel known.
We take seriously the call of Jesus to make disciples of every group (Matt 28:19)
Tranzsend focuses on being a Christian presence and witness to those people who otherwise might not hear the good news of Jesus Christ.
In Romans 10, the apostle Paul asks, “How then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?”
Tranzsend believes sending is vital to reaching the world for Christ. If you are interested in joining our team overseas, please do not hesitate to contact us at the Tranzsend office to discuss the opportunities on offer.
Tranzsend works within local cultures, seeking a spiritual transformation that honours the believer’s heritage.
A significant part of our work is in facilitation, coming alongside local groups to enable them to minister effectively. We resource national churches, pastors and evangelists to promote the growth of an authentic expression of Christianity in their context. Where we minister directly, it is always with a view to helping people come to faith in the biblical Jesus.
We believe that scripture describes a day when God will gather the beauty and diversity of the nations to Himself (Rev 21:26), and we are committed to valuing the unique identity and character of the people groups we work amongst.
Tranzsend does not impose a model of church or faith, but instead aims to establish biblical discipleship within the framework of the indigenous culture. This occurs through partnership with local ministries and staff as well as expatriate workers committed to growing a healthy indigenous church.
Tranzsend ministers to the whole person- physically, emotionally and spiritually.
We recognise that combined with a desperate spiritual poverty, many people suffer the effects of debilitating economic, educational and medical deprivation.
We want to reveal the heart of God to make all things new, both through spiritual renewal and practical aid.
We see restoration as a continuation of Jesus’ ministry: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.” (Luke 4:18)
Tranzsend staff are engaged in a variety of roles which serve to alleviate poverty, provide educational opportunities, improve health and living conditions and address injustice.
Restoring is about partnering with Jesus in declaring and demonstrating the Kingdom of God.
