Finish Initiative

God is bringing the nations to our cities, towns, and neighborhoods. With over 250,000 foreign-born in our state, the FINISH initiative is one way we assist churches to engage unreached people groups that live in South Carolina.

What is the Finish Initiative?

Your church can help with the Finish Initiative by finding people groups, identifying the unreached and underserved, nurturing church engagement, initiating ministry, supporting starting churches, and helping ethnic pastors multiply and send.

Let’s FINISH the Great Commission by making disciples of every major people group in South Carolina.
