Why we created We Are Not The Hero 

In a globalized world, the West is engaging with the rest of the world like never before. It’s more important than ever that missionaries and the organizations who lead them remember that we are not the hero. Together, we’ll help you create alternative missionary practices that make disciples without unwittingly perpetuating a hero paradigm and unintended consequences.

We’re dedicated to providing missionaries with the coaching, training, and practical tools needed to multiply disciples organically among their host communities—utilizing biblical, reproducible models.
