In 2006 PFF and The Outreach Foundation (TOF) joined in a strategic alliance for the purpose of sending missionaries.
TAP continues to be a shared ministry of TOF and PFF, even though TAP is now a separate non-profit organization. The nature of this shared ministry is evident in a number of significant ways, including: a majority of TAP Board Members represent either PFF or TOF, TAP has “outsourced” its finance/accounting functions to PFF, and TOF/PFF staff members actively recruit for TAP and share the vision of TAP. TAP's desire is to expand opportunities for Presbyterians to participate in what God is doing around the world. TAP is committed to minimizing its own organizational structure, so as to maximize kingdom resources, and we seek to work synergistically with congregations and other mission organizations, out-sourcing and creating new partnerships as appropriate.
Working among unreached and least-reached peoples continues to be an important priority for TAP. For example, a number of TAP Partners are serving among unreached people groups in various parts of the world, and other TAP Partners are supporting non-Western mission organizations as they send their own missionaries into frontier contexts. TAP is not only committed to participating in what God is doing in international frontier contexts, TAP is also committed to strategic involvement in frontier mission contexts here in the US.
