He introduced the 10/40 Window missional concept at the Lausanne II conference in Manila in 1989, which brings into focus the region of the world with greatest human suffering, combined with least exposure to Christianity. In the 1990’s he facilitated the AD 2000 & Beyond Movement with the aim of establishing a church for every people and presenting the gospel to every person with a primary focus on the 10/40 Window. The study of catalytic antecedents of today’s mission led to a World Inquiry conducted from 2002 to 2004 involving participants from more than 700 cities which was presented at the Lausanne Issues Forum in Pattaya in 2004 which led to the paradigm of mission as transformation. Since 2005 he has served as international facilitator of Transform World Connections based in Singapore.
