whatever it takes

our mission 

For Christ, we communicate the Gospel in remote places, with an emphasis on the new creation, in order to transform forgotten people, by making disciples and developing leaders.

our founding

Overland Missions was founded by Philip and Sharon Smethurst: explorers and evangelists. Philip was born in Africa and Sharon raised in Brazil. Using their life experience of military and travel, along with their love for developing nations, the two officially started Overland in 1999 with the goal of reaching remote people with the Gospel. Now, the team of Overland has 198 full-time staff members, working in 15 countries, on five continents. We are adding new full-time missionaries every year through our Advanced Mission Training program with the goal of 1,000 missionaries by 2030. With new nations on the horizon, we will continue to do whatever it takes to see people transformed by the Gospel of Christ.

expeditions

The purpose of an expedition is to bring the Gospel and build relationships with some of the most remote and neglected people on earth. Your expedition will focus primarily on evangelism and discipleship as you preach and build the local church over two weeks. Investing a small portion of your time is the greatest way to impact their lives and advance the Kingdom in these regions.

The cost of the trip, excluding airfare, depends on location and includes in-country food, accommodation, and local transport. We recommend fundraising the costs. After you apply your leader will personally coach you through this process.
