Crossworld, originally called Unevangelized Fields Mission (UFM), began in 1931 by sending its first missionaries to the Congo and Brazil.

UFM changed its name to Crossworld in 2004 to reflect the goal of taking the message of the cross to the entire world. By 2010, we had placed nearly 350 international staff members around the globe. Churches planted by our missionaries are now involved in cross-cultural missions themselves: the Dani tribe sends people to other tribes in Papua, Haitians to Senegal, the Wai-Wai to the Yanomami, and Brazilians to Mozambique. Besides church planting, our workers are involved in education, medical care, sports, and more.
