As teams interact with neighbours from around the globe, we are able to resource them with Bibles and discipleship resources in dozens of languages. We are grateful to the Canadian Bible Society for their generosity in partnership.
Our annual conference has been developed to encourage and equip the global MoveIn movement. Over the course of four days, MoveIn teams come together to receive teaching from global leaders, share stories of what God has done in their regions, build community around our common goals, and pray for vision for the coming year.
MoveIn S.E. Asia
South East Asia contains populous cities with some of the most poor neighbourhoods on the planet, the residents of whom have limited, if any, access to the gospel. After years of preparation, in 2015 we have begun planting seeds for the MoveIn vision by sending mobilization staff to start teams. We are inviting the Church (locally and globally) to consider the radical call to move into slums in this part of the world.

It’s temporary, and can either be used selfishly to fulfill our earthly desires, or can be used to point to Christ.

We stood on the balcony with her and her sister as they admired the fresh green beans growing in our tiny vegetable garden. We talked about the miracle of planting seeds, and I was reminded again of why MoveIn exists. We move in so that we can plant seeds, and then watch in wonder as God makes the garden grow.
When James* pioneered a MoveIn patch two years ago, he had no idea how challenging or how fulfilling it would be.
Nine years moved in, and counting
