Linguæ Christi’s work is divided into four main divisions. These divisions cover the central implementation work among the minority languages groups of Europe as well as the essential development and support
Implementation refers to the team-based, incarnational missions specific to people groups within Linguæ Christi’s purview. Through prayer, service, spending time together, using common interests, hospitality, and a verbal witness, we share the Gospel and extend the Kingdom of God through one-on-one relationships and community-oriented living. This is the most important aspect of our missions ministry. Everything else exists to facilitate those involved most directly in Implementation. In fact, even those who have significant roles related to the other divisions will also be directly involved in Implementation to some degree, by being assigned to a local focus team. Implementation is the life’s blood of Linguæ Christi, as it is the most closely and directly tied to the spiritual needs of the European indigenous minority language people groups, who are the exclusive focus of Linguæ Christi.
Leadership gives vision, focus, inspiration and direction to those involved most directly in Implementation. The General Director is the primary leader within this Leadership matrix. Somewhat differently structured than many missions organisations, leaders would not be appointed to the roles, and then tasked with forming their focus teams. Rather, these future leaders would start simply as members of local focus teams, and as the Lord shows His gifting in them, they would be identified and asked to take on these Leadership responsibilities, while continuing to be practitioners as active members of a local focus team.
Development deals with auxiliary areas of ministry and resourcing which help members of local focus teams to be trained and empowered with the resources (material and human), training, and strategic development that will help them to be as effective as possible with the primary tasks. Those involved in Development would include areas of mobilisation/recruitment, training/coaching, orality strategies coordination, member care, community development projects, among other similar areas of concern.

Support deals with those very practical areas of concern, without which the implementation of Linguæ Christi’s mission could not occur. These services would be in areas such as administration, finance, logistics, and even broader areas related to the legal functioning of Linguæ Christi, as a missions agency and a legal charitable entity.
