Strategic: focuses on deploying pioneering teams as the basic vehicle for addressing strategic areas of need throughout the world. Strategic missions embraces both short-term and long-term strategies to accomplish all aspects of ministry, including the planting of both local churches and missions structures.

Pioneering: focuses on equipping individuals and teams to pioneer new ministries in geograpical areas and societal spheres, and to help clarify callings, develop vision and learn how to implement a pioneer project.

Asian: focuses on Asian studies, learning research skills, with application to developing effective mission strategy for a particular nation or people group.
