what we doThe Oikos Initiative
The Oikos Initiative is a movement to reach every home on earth with the truth and love of Jesus within a single generation — 20 years!
The truth is that God loves everyone, everywhere. It’s why we are committed to taking the gospel to every nation, every home, and every person.
We have begun a once-in-a-generation marathon to reach the last home on earth. Every Home for Christ (along with many other organizations) is committed to this challenge — but it takes more than the commitment of a few well-intentioned individuals to make a plan succeed. We need resources, both spiritual and physical.
Oikos is the ancient Greek word for a dwelling or a family. To put it simply, it’s a word that means “home.”
The world population is projected to surpass 8 billion people in 2024. Don’t think of this as just a staggering number. Picture newborn babies and great-grandfathers. Imagine tribal leaders, university students, single mothers, and powerful entrepreneurs. When you picture the people, you clearly see the mission.
The same heartbeat that infused our original vision infuses the Oikos Initiative. This is our greatest opportunity and our greatest challenge. But we hold tight to a promise:
Jesus says, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
There is still so much work to be done. Yet there is no greater purpose than reaching a lost and broken world with the truth and love of Jesus.
