SM has a vision to see all God’s people living a life on mission with God and all local churches being missional!   

Simply Mobilizing grew out of a movement in the Philippines in the 1990s that saw hundreds of Filipino missionaries mobilized to take the love of Jesus to the more than 5 million Filipino Muslims in the thirteen Muslim unreached people groups. This has resulted in churches being planted and hundreds of Filipino Muslims coming to faith in Christ.

Max and Dorothy have served in the Philippines for more than four decades. They have two children and six grandchildren and have just recently based themselves in their home country of New Zealand. From there they engage in leadership, producing mobilizing materials and teaching with Simply Mobilizing International.
