Why Papua New Guinea?
With more than 1 million Bibles being distributed nationwide at the government’s request, now is a unique moment to advance the Great Commission in every “uttermost part” of Papua New Guinea. The door is wide open to reach every village.
The renowned Sepik River is a “highway” through the center of the remote East Sepik Province, a least reached region of the country. Over 500,000 people live in over 90,000 households. What will it take to reach this region?
National evangelists like Brother Calistus, the fruit of past missionary work, are trained and ready to preach the gospel, plant churches, and train new leaders in regions where they live and beyond. Partnership encourages and expands their vision and impact.

Gospel advance involves perseverance in spiritual battle. Satan will never give in without a fight. Our greatest need is a committed team of intercessors. Would you join us as strategic prayer partners? We will equip you to pray individually; but our greatest desire is for small teams who meet regularly to pray together on our behalf. To let us know you’re on our prayer team, to receive regular updates to guide your prayers, to find out more about prayer, click below.
Expenses are significant for ministry in PNG, often 2 or 3 times more than for similar work in parts of Africa or Asia. GoTrip participants will be raising their own funding for Stage 3 travel and ministry. Costs of Stage 1 and 2 for the GoMission team is $125,000. Thankfully, God has already provided 70% of that amount. Would you consider partnering with us financially? Our church uses an online giving platform called RebelGive. On that platform, there is a fund that is specifically for the PNG Trip.
