Founder’s Fund

Before Russ went to heaven, the last project we were discussing was reaching the unreached and unengaged people groups (UUPGs) in the nation of Chad. Over the last few years we have been working in the nation of Niger in partnership with City for the Nations, successfully reaching the final seven UUPGs with the gospel! Where there were NO Christians, and no one trying to reach them, we were able to train indigenous leaders and with the power of the Holy Spirit there are now over 2,000 believers! 

With the success in Niger, we felt the Lord directing us to target Chad. The leaders in Niger want to help the leaders in Chad reach the 55 UUPGs in their nation. THIS IS THE VERY THING RUSS FRASE WANTED WHEN HE STARTED JOSHUA NATIONS! Indigenous leaders reaching their nation and becoming missionaries to raise up other indigenous leaders. This is a BIG project, nearly eight times bigger than the project in Niger! We cannot do this alone and it will be the first project funded through the Russ Frase Founder’s Fund. 

So, how can you help reach Chad? Research shows there are over 5.3 million people spread across the nation that have never heard the name of Jesus. With the number of identified people groups we estimate that at least 150 workers need to be trained, sent, and supported. Our plan of financial involvement is for three years, here are some breakdowns of ways you can be involved: 

 We need 75 teams to reach the nation. 

$600 month | $7200 year | $21,600 3 years 

 We need to take approximately 2-3 trips per year 

$5500 per event | $16,500 year | $49,500 3 years 

 Approximate cost per person based on total project cost 

$4 per person | $30,400 per people group 

Our biggest financial involvement will be 3 years 

$556,500 year | $1,669,500 total project cost 

Still have questions?


Testimonies of transformation will be made available as the project progresses. Your investment will make an eternal impact.
