The Frontier Mission Fellowship and U.S. Center for World Mission have been reorganized and rebranded as “Frontier Ventures” as they continue to seek to reach the remaining unreached peoples of the world, but now with a “renewed commitment.”
The 17-acre campus in Pasadena, California, where the late missiologist Dr. Ralph D. Winter founded the USCWM and William Carey International University nearly 40 years ago, also has a new name, “The Venture Center,” Frontier Ventures announced in a statement.
The FMF and USCWM have been reorganized and rebranded “to represent the renewed commitment to collaborate with others to see the remaining unreached peoples of the world reached and to reflect the fresh new ways God is at work in this ministry.”
“Frontier Ventures and the Venture Center are a rebirth of all that made the U.S. Center for World Mission and the Frontier Mission Fellowship a strong momentum-building force for frontier mission work,” Bruce Graham of the Office of the General Director for Frontier Ventures said. “A lot has changed since its founding nearly forty years ago and the organization is changing in response. We have sought to shift with the changing times while also bringing clarity and alignment to our own family of ministries.”
The focus of Frontier Ventures is “to serve churches and ministries working toward and among unreached peoples. Its emphasis will be on mobilization, education, prayer, research, innovation, media, training and strategy.”
The Venture Center continues to be a collaborative center for world mission, added Frontier Ventures, which currently is served by more than 120 staff globally and is comprised of 12 different subsidiary ministries including its Perspectives course.
Dr. Winter, who coined the term “unreached people groups,” died on May 20, 2009. He is best known for his groundbreaking 1974 presentation at the Congress for World Evangelization in Lausanne, Switzerland.
