The man who beats the drum does not know how far the sound will go. – Congolese Proverb
In 1995 two mission families, RBMU and Worldteam, with a combined legacy of 200 years of missionary service, fused to become the World Team we know today. Generations of faithful saints have gone before us, carrying the gospel message to all who have ears to hear. We will never know how many listened, but we believe God blessed the effort.
Jesus invites us, “Go, work today in my vineyard”. And so we continue the legacy, carrying the banner into the dark places of the earth, trusting Christ to call out His own from among the nations.
In the years since merger, God has opened wide the doors for new ministries among the working class in Taiwan, Cambodia’s Khmer people, 10/40-window Internationals in NYC, and minority group peoples in Central Asia and Africa. And God is mobilizing a dynamic new missionary force from places like Indonesia, Suriname, the Philippines, and West Indies.
RBMU International traces its roots to Harley Bible College in London, founded in 1873 by the Irish revivalist H. Grattan Guinness.
Worldteam was formed in 1928 as a small Bible Institute in central Cuba by Elmer Thompson and B.G. Lavastida.
