Doulos Partners exists to reach the maximum number of people in the shortest amount of time in the most cost-effective way.
What does that mean? We are committed to working with native believers and established organizations to plant churches and convert nonbelievers into faithful followers of Christ.
We partner with existing, established church planting ministries.
We partner with established, successful church planting ministries that already have deep relationships with indigenous pastors around the world. We work with christian church planting organizations and native believers to spread the Gospel.
100% of the evangelical work, from leadership at the national level to sharing the Gospel one-on-one, is done by nationals in their own countries. This approach eliminates many of the obstacles that US missionaries around the world face in gaining trust, navigating customs, and learning the culture.
You partner with us.
We serve as a mission’s mutual fund, sending resources where they will get the greatest return on investment (ROI).

The results? More churches planted and more people choosing Christ as their savior.

How does it work?
A Doulos-sponsored evangelist, native to that country, goes into a village or town.
He begins reaching the lost through street preaching, personal testimony, the Jesus film – whatever works for the culture and people. Once people accept Jesus, he immediately begins to disciple these new believers.
From these new believers, God faithfully raises up a leader.
Inevitably, a “Timothy” will emerge, someone with the gift and heart of pastoring. The evangelist disciples and trains this new believer to lead and preach.
What the “Church” Looks Like:
The new believers and pastor plant a new church.
It may meet in a hut, storefront, or someone’s home. As this church and pastor matures, they reach their village or city, adding to their number. They may even plant new churches themselves. For example, in a Cuban city one church pastor began 70 new plants!
The evangelist then moves to another village or town and begins evangelizing there.
The evangelist continues to support church planting work in the area by providing mentoring and accountability. Furthermore, he continues to move to new areas, replicating the process to reach more lost.

Consider Mission Work.
You can also travel with us to Cuba or one of dozens of countries in Asia or Africa to partner in the great work that God is doing through Doulos Partners. When you go, you get hands-on experiences. For example, you can offer your testimony, assist with baptisms, or simply share what’s on your heart— i.e. how to have effective quiet times, how to nurture your marriage, etc.
Our name, Doulos, is a Greek word in Scripture meaning slave—as in bondservant to the master, Jesus Christ—fully committed to carrying out His commandments. Do you want to be a slave to God? These are the partners we seek.
