Community-wide transformation starts with an empowered leader.

After 20+ years in relief and development, we stand firm in the belief that sustainable change begins with HOPE.

That’s why our approach is centered around equipping indigenous leaders to share their faith and plant thriving churches as the answer for suffering, brokenness and persecution.

How does hope = sustainable change?

Once a trusted presence is established, church planters show the heart of their faith by aligning Petros Network resources to address the community’s most pressing physical, educational, and economic needs.

The result is redemptive lift. All community members, regardless of religious beliefs, are offered hope-filled opportunities that crush the confines of generational poverty and overflow into neighboring communities.

Empowering Women & Girls

Petros Network Women ignites a spark of hope in the hearts of women through life and job skill training, leadership development, and micro-loans or meaningful work. When women are empowered the cycle of poverty is broken.

Protecting Children

At risk children are vulnerable to trafficking, exploitation and abuse. Child sponsorship provides protective care, clothing, medical services, and school tuition. Our children’s FeedOne program helps to provide nutritious meals and keep kids learning in school.

Educating and Training

Education is the path out of poverty. Whether it is schooling for children or one of our extension centers for adult learning, learners of all ages can learn their way into a new future.

Feeding Families

Food security is at risk in the difficult and often persecuted places we serve. Agriculture training and support, along with Children’s feeding initiatives provide children and families with the vital support they need to thrive.

Improving Healthcare

Poverty and poor health are linked, creating a cycle that is difficult to break. We offer immediate help to those who are sick and suffering as well as resources for a healthier and sustainable future.

Providing Clean Water

Water is one of our most basic needs as human beings, yet it is the number one cause of death in the areas we serve. Clean water, sanitation, and hygiene go hand in hand to save lives. Clean water initiatives vary due to the unique needs of a village.

You may still be wondering…



Is my gift tax deductible?
If you itemize your deductions, you may be able to deduct charitable contributions of money or property to qualified organizations. Petros Network has been approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (45-4131862). Additionally, Petros Network Canada is a qualified registered charity in Canada (80637 7073 RR0001).
How will I know my gift is making a difference?
When you invest with Petros Network, we will report to you the results of the church planter, the widowed woman, and the vulnerable child you have sponsored. We believe that through us, you will experience an unequaled return on missional investment, both in time and in eternity.
How much of my gift goes to overhead?
85% of your gift goes direct to the field. 15% helps us to provide support, mentorship, and build resources for the efforts in the field.
Do you help everyone in the community or just some?
We believe the gospel is for all people, and so are the blessings of his kingdom. This means that through our Redemptive Lift efforts, everyone—Christians and non-Christians alike—in the village where a church is planted will benefit from Kingdom blessings—like health and hygiene practices, medical treatment, clean water, fair governance, women’s empowerment, protection of vulnerable children, feeding initiatives, feeding programs, etc. In our mind, that everyone benefits is simply another metric that reveals the authenticity of the gospel.
Can we reach everyone who doesn’t know Jesus?

Who knows, but we are giving it our best shot. We hope that by our efforts a gospel movement will be unleashed among national churches that will touch every unreached people group with the hope-filled message of the gospel. Will everyone receive Christ? Probably not. But will everyone hear? That is our aim.



Why are there still areas that are unreached?

An Unreached People Group is an ethnic group with less than 2% evangelical presence. An unreached people group lacks enough followers of Christ and resources to evangelize their own people. Today, there are 7,033 unreached people groups.

That means 42.5% of the global population are classified as unreached.

Why do you send indigenous missionaries/church planters?

Jesus commissioned his followers to go into all the world to proclaim the Good News to all creation (Mark 16:15). He even promised that the Holy Spirit would empower his followers to be his witness to the ends—literally, the very last place—of the earth (Acts 1:8). He said the Good News of his saving grace would be preached to all nations—literally, to all the ethnic groups—as a harbinger of the end of the age (Matthew 24:14). Petros Network is simply yet seriously taking Jesus words as our mission.

How do you count and verify new believers?
We require our indigenous church planters to report monthly how many people have responded to the Good News they preached. Our overseers travel to these villages to verify their reports. It varies from denomination to denomination, but many churches do not consider a convert a authentic Christ-follower until they have been baptized in water (Mark 16:16).
What denomination are you?
Petros Network is interdenominational. We work with 114 denominations and a variety of Christian humanitarian organizations to carry out our mission to plant churches among the unreached.
Are there other organizations doing what you’re doing?
Yes and no. No, in the sense that Petros Network has a unique missiology and methodology. But yes, as we are discovering, God is raising up like-minded organizations that are dedicated to reaching the unreached around the world. That fact convinces us that we are a part of a new movement of the Holy Spirit to finish the task of reaching the last place and the past person on earth who has not heard the Good News before Jesus returns.
