About Commission To Every Nation

672 Missionaries Serving in 59 Countries

The harvest is ripe but the laborers are still few!

Commission To Every Nation (CTEN) is an interdenominational missionary sending agency which seeks to assist ordinary people to accomplish the extraordinary for His glory (much like Hudson Taylor’s vision for hundreds of missionaries to serve in inland China)!

While many agencies recruit missionaries to help accomplish the goal of the agency, CTEN exists to serve the missionary and help them in the ministry God has led them.

Each CTEN missionary relates directly to a pastoral care couple that regularly stays in touch with them, prays with them and visits them on the field to ensure the spiritual health of the missionary and their family. CTEN handles financial accountability, tax receipting, and the missionary’s newsletters.

CTEN is a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) and has the highest possible rating with Charity Navigator.

When Margaret and I joined CTEN in 2013, the mission had 457 missionaries; currently it has 672 missionaries serving in 59 nations. Twenty-eight (28) CTEN missionaries serve in the Philippines.

CTEN conducts a three-day orientation four times yearly for new missionaries.  Go to https://cten.org/ for more information.
