The primary mission of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries is to reach and challenge those who shape the ideas of a culture with the credibility of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Distinctive in its strong evangelistic and apologetic foundation, the ministry of RZIM is intended to touch both the heart and the intellect of the thinkers and influencers of society through the support of the visionary leadership of Ravi Zacharias.

RZIM's Vision:

To build a team with a fivefold thrust of evangelism, apologetics, spiritual disciplines, training, and humanitarian support so the mandate of I Peter 3:15 might be fulfilled: to set apart Christ in our hearts as Lord and always be prepared to give a reason for the hope that is within us, with gentleness and respect, all for the glory of God.

In order to meet that vision RZIM has developed strategic ministry initiatives of outreach in the following areas:

  • Global
    • RZIM has assembled a world class team of nearly 100 apologists who are trained and effective evangelists able to provide biblical answers to life's spiritual, moral, and personal questions about worth and destiny.
  • Youth
    • Today's youth are exposed to different worldviews and cultural ideas from every side. RZIM recognizes the need to address those issues head on. These subjects are approached in a variety of methods, from university open forums to events exclusively for students and young adults. RZIM wants to invest in students’ lives and come alongside youth leaders to help answer questions and daily challenges on sexuality, faith, culture, and other relevant topics.
  • Apologetics Training
    • Through online courses, events, conferences, and certificate educational programs, RZIM is committed to providing training in various forms for those desiring to provide an intelligent and thought-through defense of the gospel.
  • Digital Outreach
    • This digital age presents amazing opportunities to reach millions of people daily across the globe. Through radio, podcasts, YouTube, social media, and the internet, RZIM has been able to expand the impact of our reach to further engage and impact a global audience who are seeking answers to life's most difficult questions.
  • Business
    • Engaging the business world is integral to RZIM's mission: to reach and challenge those who shape the ideas of a culture with the credibility of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through strategic events like Festival of Thought, our Business Leaders' Conference, and others, God is using our team to reach the marketplace in unique and stunning ways.
  • Humanitarian Relief
    • Raised in a region of the world well-acquainted with human suffering, Ravi Zacharias’ heart has always felt a particular burden for those living in poverty, injustice, and tragedy. As a community, RZIM believes that each person carries intrinsic value given by their Creator, and Wellspring International was established as a meaningful way for RZIM to respond to some of the prevalent wounds of humanity. From this desire to be "practical apologetics," Wellspring International was born as a fully-funded arm of RZIM to impact the lives of society's most vulnerable populations.
