About Us

At 1040Visions, we emphasize sharing the Gospel to unreached people groups that do not have the means of hearing about our Savior. “We are kingdom minded people and love being jumper cables for Jesus!”


How 1040Visions Began

1040Visions was formed upon the return of several mission teams from Suffolk, Virginia who traveled to Burkina Faso. Known for being landlocked and poverty-stricken, West Africa lies within what is known as the 10/40 window. These teams worked alongside local pastors and lay-leaders serving in local communities  and villages. They were involved in evangelizing, teaching, and serving the community through building projects and providing educational resources to the poor. It is said that once you have the “red dust of Africa”  on your feet, it can never be washed away. We have found that to be true! Our hearts and lives have been forever changed by serving the Lord in their country.

Our Mission

1040Visions focuses on ministry work in locations of the world that does not have ready access to the Good News.  We also help provide  community development projects and educational access when able.  Our heart burns for the lost and the ability to live out the Gospel.

Our mission is to be the hands and feet of Jesus, mobilizing other to spread the Good News, no matter where He calls us.

Our values

We believe in the inherent truth of the Bible; that Jesus changed everything and can change anyone.  He did it 2000 years ago and his life changing message is still relevant today.  We take the Great Commission as a mandate, not an option.

95% of the funds our allocated to the field projects and ministry support. 1040Visions core values are held strongly with our reputation and commit 100% to being transparent to all of the supporters as to how and where the donations were allocated.

Romans 10 : 14-15

 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
