CHE network members are at work in 127 countries and 3,057 communities. Globally, 3,037 trainers and 17,680 community evangelists and leaders are working directly with 108,497 households.

A million village challenge
CHE Network members are working together on eleven different initiatives. Time won’t permit me to tell you about them all, but the one I am most excited about is what we call the Million Village Challenge.
Global mission movements are converging on a single task – establishing a Gospel witness among the last of the unreached and unengaged peoples (UUPGs) on earth. (UUPGs are ethno-linguistic people groups with no believers among them and nobody reaching out to them).
There are just 1,371 UUPGs remaining. The vast majority of these peoples are in marginalized rural areas (villages) in Asia, Middle East and North Africa.
The CHE Network has accepted the challenge, in partnership with Transform World, of mobilizing and equipping national workers in these difficult and distant areas. We are working together with international partners to mobilize and equip national believers in establishing transformational Gospel movements among the village poor in these unreached areas.
We intend to reach them all. We will not stop until the last little girl in the darkest corner of the smallest hut has opportunity is reached with the truth and compassion of Christ. My prayer is that through our Million Village Challenge initiative, the church globally will be mobilized to establish transformational Gospel movements among the last of the unengaged peoples.
