This website is sponsored by the Ralph D. Winter Research Center under Frontier Ventures and William Carey International University but aims for broad representation and input from those engaged with frontier missiology. Guest blog posts and recommendations about important videos, links, etc., are welcome; ideas can be shared at Note also our call for assistance on the Opportunities page.

Membership on this website enables one to make comments on posts and to download most of the materials, but only for personal use (study/research/writing or sharing with friends and colleagues under the same restrictions). Any further publication or classroom use should only be with special permission, which will include permission from the original author(s) as well as from the Research Center. We want to disseminate the information on this site, so expect our hearty cooperation! Contact us using the form on the Research Center Opportunities page or click HERE.

 Quotations from materials accessible here should reference the webpage (“This was downloaded from the Ralph D. Winter Research Center, [+ specific web address, or].”) but many of these documents were previously published, and that original source should also be acknowledged.

 Note that some items are not available for downloading for various personal or copyright reasons. This will especially be the case with many photographs.
