There are now nearly twice as many Christians in the Global South as there are in Europe and North America. As Christianity’s center of gravity has shifted – so too is the flow of missionaries.

Thousands of Christians from places like Brazil, Nigeria and South Korea – where Christianity was first brought by European and North American missionaries – are now traveling to Europe and North America seeking to convert the natives.
