Legendary Missionary Leader and Good Friend of Movieguide® Dies

Dr. Ralph Winter, founder of US Center for World Mission, passed away this week from complications of cancer at 84.

Dr. Winter was the foremost thinker in missions in the twentieth century, most notably leading the movement to reach communities with no existing Christian witness, the “unreached people groups.”

“Ralph was a longtime supporter, encourager and very close friend of Movieguide, attending our events and telling us to keep on with our ministry,” notes Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of Movieguide®.

In addition to the US Center for World Mission, Dr. Winter founded the William Carey International University and his 1974 address to the Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization became a paradigm shift in missions thinking that continues to be felt today.

“He will leave a hole in the intellectual Christian community, but we rejoice that he has now joined his wife Roberta in eternity with Jesus,” Dr. Baehr says.
