We believe that the local church is the hope of the world. And, since our core passion is to "to bring the revelation of God and His kingdom to unreached people" everything we do is focused on sharing the Good News and establishing healthy, reproducing, sustainable local churches. Through our "End to End Strategy" RUN provides church planters with the tools to work among unreached people with evangelism, orality, and Bible translation tools.

Mission statement

We RESCUE people from the evils of slavery, EMPOWER leaders with training and tools, and GROW Movements that impact their world for good.

Reaching Unreached Nations was founded in 1990 by Eric Watt and is a USA registered 501 (c) 3 tax-deductible organization. An interdenominational mission, RUN subscribes to the Lausanne Covenant and cooperates with Christians around the world to help fulfill the Great Commission.

Program accomplishments

Since 2014 RUN Ministries has rescued, sheltered, and offered hope to more than 280,000 refugees from Iraq and Syria.

Faced with the region's humanitarian crisis, RUN has also rescued boys from Islamic radicalization and established locally run "Moses houses" for their safety.

Girls and young women, frequent victims of kidnapping for sex trafficking, are rescued and given sanctuary and care in "Esther houses." For the past decade God has enabled RUN to equip thousands of first generation Christian leaders from within the 10/40 Window, providing evangelistic media tools, a culturally sensitive discipleship model and practical skills for their ministries to become self-sustaining.


During the winter, temperatures in parts of the Middle East and North Africa are similar to those in the U.S. Many of the thousands of at-risk boys and girls in our care have no source of heat, and most don't have adequate clothing to keep them warm and safe.

One of The Rescue Project's promises to orphaned children of war in our care is to provide them with food, water, shelter, and other essentials - including warm clothes. We need your help to provide them with items such as hats, scarves, gloves, and socks as temperatures turn frigid!
