WHO WE ARE

OUR MISSION

Equipping and enabling believers worldwide to conduct church-based evangelism projects to reach unbelievers and make disciples.

OUR PURPOSE

The purpose of International Commission is to share the redeeming love of Jesus Christ with the unbelieving world to make disciples. 

OUR STORY

In 1971, a farmer in West Texas named Ben Mieth led a team of 45 members from First Baptist Church Seminole to participate with churches in Mexico in a week of evangelistic visits, Bible schools, and nightly evangelistic services. They experienced miracles, launched a new church, and saw about 1,500 people accept Christ that week! A few months later, leaders from other churches in Mexico came to Seminole to invite Ben to send more teams to work with them in the same way. This time, Ben recruited ten American church teams to work with ten Mexican churches, and again many people professed faith in Jesus during that project. The following year, twenty churches in another region of Mexico made the invitation, and IC was officially established as an organization.

Since that time in 1973, IC has been equipping and enabling believers worldwide to conduct church-based evangelism projects to reach unbelievers and make disciples. We have worked in over 179 countries, planted hundreds of new churches, mobilized thousands of believers to share the gospel, and introduced tens of millions of people to Jesus Christ.

HOW WILL A PROJECT IMPACT ME? 

What Pastors Are Saying:

What Participants Are Saying:

I have seen so many decisions for full-time ministry involvement.

In 30 years of full-time service I have never seen God’s outpouring like this.

I have witnessed strengthened personal relationships with Christ, and a new love for Him and a real faith in Him!

This week has been filled with so many stories of people whose lives have been changed because of our team’s willingness to follow God’s Spirit.

I never believed God could use me to lead this many people to Him!

I have seen so many decisions for full-time ministry involvement.

The book of Acts just came alive as we saw God performing miracles and saving people everyday.

Every Christian should do this. This is what being a Christian is all about.

Our Staff & Partners

INTERNATIONAL LEADERS

Key to accomplishing our Great Commission call are the international leaders who serve around the globe alongside our US area strategy team, the team who open doors and coordinates the ministry overseas. They are pastors or local Christian leaders who have joined us to train and mobilize believers in their region to share the gospel and make disciples. Their work involves everything from logistical planning for international projects to organizing and facilitating N2N projects. It is only their partnership that makes our ministry possible, especially in undisclosed countries where merely being a Christian endangers their lives and Americans cannot enter.
USA STAFF

The North American staff members who serve on our Mobilization Team, Area Strategy Team, and headquarters Planning and Strategy Team are people from all walks of life who have been impacted by the ministry of International Commission and have dedicated themselves to equipping and enabling believers worldwide to reach unbelievers and make disciples. They work with Christians overseas to establish new ministry partnerships and projects, mobilize and train leaders and participants, resource partnering churches, and conduct the essential and strategic administrative tasks.
