What is Billion.Global?
Billion.Global is a network of ministry partners collaborating to reach one billion people with the Gospel.
Esta visión nació de una carga puesta en el corazón de Bob Fetherlin, el actual presidente de One Mission Society (OMS)
One Mission Society es una organización misionera, asociada con más de 180 organizaciones y 30 denominaciones para compartir el evangelio de Jesucristo y multiplicar comunidades de discípulos alrededor del mundo.
OMS launched the Billion.Global Vision on July 1, 2016 during its biannual international conference in Marion, Indiana, and now the vision has grown to include partners beyond the organization’s

Having previously served in West Africa, Bob has been involved in leading Christian mission efforts with The Christian and Missionary Alliance and One Mission Society.

Prior to his promotion to Glory, Billion.Global was blessed by Steve's contributions as a consultant. He brought his 53 years of Cru experience, as well as extensive wisdom and knowledge in the areas of creating partner networks and fostering collaborative relationships to better the effectiveness of the Billion.Global vision. Billion.Global will be forever impacted by Steve's gracious input. In the words of Steve Douglass, "There are many ways to make a difference in people’s lives. But none is more significant than helping people establish a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.”
