Our History

Southern Asia Tribal Outreach (SATO) was created in 2014 as a ministry to fulfill the command set by our Lord Jesus Christ to not only go and preach the gospel but to also make disciples of all nations, teaching all that He has commanded us. We are actively trying to fulfill this command through various channels. (See What We Do Page)  By teaching and training future indigenous Christian leaders through bible-based coursework and providing practical training, students may go and preach the gospel and make disciples for Christ in their respective people group and be involved with other Christian ministerial opportunities to fulfill the Great Commission.  Likewise, through our compassion ministries, we are also being active and having direct engagement with the surrounding community and strengthening them by showing them Christ’s love.  Through fellowship with one another, ministers can build a network of support to help deal with the various trials they would face as a minister of the gospel in the mission field.

Who We Are

Within the United States, SATO has received recognition from several churches and other mission minded ministries. As of April 2015, it has officially affiliated it’s ministry of the New York Ministry Network (NYMN). With this partnership, SATO is receiving accountability in regards to faithful stewardship of the mission work that is being completed in South Asia.  SATO has also established partnership with other mission-minded ministries, such as the Assemblies of God World Missions, to help in SATO’s goal of constructing a School of Ministry on land purchased in Lashio, Myanmar. While these relationships are important, they do not hinder the central vision and ministry of Southern Asia Tribal Outreach as an evangelical ministry in South Asia.
