Global Missions and Risk


— the possibility of suffering harm or loss; danger.
— a factor, thing, element or course involving uncertain danger.

230+ mission leaders, field workers and church mission staff members participated in our 2022 risk in missions survey.

The graphic shows how churches and mission organizations approach risk and what issues are the most important for their context, covering the following topics:

  • Tolerance levels for institutional risk
  • Areas of greatest risk for ministry
  • Risk for global staff
  • Concerns for North American ministries
  • Global health crisis
  • Areas of risk for utilizing an attorney
  • Legal counsel
  • Employment risks
  • Concerns for compliance risk issues
  • Areas of future risk for ministry
  • Areas of needed resources to manage risk

We want to thank our friends at Brotherhood Mutual for their partnership in making these Missiographics possible. Visit
