For over a decade, John and Jan Baxter have been involved with leadership development and missionary training in the Central Philippines where they have seen the mission potential of Majority World Christians seeking employment in Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist lands.
Responding to this great mission opportunity, Converge Worldwide appointed John as the Director of Diaspora Ministries. In this role, John is helping Converge missionaries and churches, in North America and abroad, to work effectively among least-reached, migrating people groups.
John also directs NextMove, a research and consulting ministry that helps mission executives solve the major issues that hinder their agency’s involvement with migrating people. (See www.NextMove.net)
In addition, as an international representative for the Global Diaspora Network of the Lausanne Movement, John works to equip schools around the world to promote diaspora missiology.
The Baxters’ primary ministry objective is evangelism and discipleship of members of unreached people groups wherever they reside by training immigrant, Christian workers from the Global South who live and work in 10/40 Window countries, and by assisting churches and mission agencies to evangelize least-reached immigrant groups that reside among them.
