The International Mission Board partners with churches to empower missionary teams who are making disciples and planting churches among unreached people groups all across the world. An entity of the Southern Baptist Convention, the IMB is sending people to share the gospel and lead people to follow Jesus in every place on Earth. Churches are being planted in both strategic global cities and remote, unknown places, to reach the lost and tell about the love of Christ. More than 4,800 people groups – almost 1 bullion people – still exist with no access to the Gospel. City Church partners with the IMB to send missionaries across the world, to see this number erased as people come to know Jesus.


The North American Mission Board has identified strategic cities across the continent in which to plan churches and share the Gospel. Ridgedale partners with the city of Denver to support new local churches through a network called Send DENVER. This network allows churches to share resources, send teams to serve, and pray and encourage those who are on the ground in Denver sharing about Jesus.
