Christian world missions timeline

A year-by-year look at Church history from the perspective of its global expansion

"World missions is incredibly tied in to the story of the Bible. Moreover, it represents the main theme: Christ's mission to save us and our mission to pass that on to others." -- Anthony Collison

Note: Earliest dates must all be considered "approximate."

Not every year has something connected to it. If you know of something for one of the missing years, let me know. I'll be glad to add it. It needs to be said that I'm part of the Church of the Nazarene. So, that's the reason events connected with my "tribe" appear here and there in this chronological unfolding of gospel outreach.
