Passion for the Good News: an interview with David Joannes You are the founder and president of a ministry called Within Reach Global. Please tell us about the ministry and the kinds of work that it is involved in.

David Joannes: After ten years of ministry among China’s unreached people groups, my wife and I founded Within Reach Global ten years ago. Twenty years after my arrival on the foreign field, we now lead a group of local and foreign missionaries who travel to the ends of the earth. Our purpose is to glorify God by reaching unreached people groups. God blessed us with a group of radical pioneers—people willing to suffer for the cause of Christ and make His name known where it is not. Over the years, our Within Reach Global missionaries have experienced waves of persecution in the form of jail time, physical beatings, and even burns from cigarettes extinguished on their faces. These difficulties have served to expand God’s Kingdom to regions without a Christian witness. We are now in a season of growth and believe that we are on the cusp of a continued revival in Southeast Asia. You can learn more about Within Reach Global at
