Statistics from the International Mission Board confirm that only a small number of minority ethnic groups (African, Hispanic, and Asian Americans) are serving as international missionaries. We want to be a part of changing that reality.

The extreme underrepresentation reveals that solutions must go beyond the simple answers of historical and socioeconomic factors.  These troubling statistics call for Great Commission resurgence in minority communities that is tailored to engage the needs of undertaking international missions from non-dominant culture.

The KDMI seeks to spark a Great Commission resurgence among multicultural Christians by creating a platform to catalyze minority believers to the ends of the earth and integrate a passion for international missions into their current and future areas of service. This platform comes through making opportunities available for short term missions exposure.

Who can apply?

  • Minority American students.
  • Minority American pastors/ministry leaders who have never been on a short-term mission trip.
  • Those who serve on mission teams serving non-Western people groups domestically or internationally.
