Seven Tsunami Waves Shaping Your World Today

A tsunami is a long high sea wave caused by an earthquake, submarine landslide, or other disturbance. It begins unnoticed, far out at sea, and builds quickly into an unstoppable force.

The Terra Nova Project has identified seven current world-changing tsunamis, triggered by an interference pattern of regional and global realities. These waves of culture and conflict are gaining speed and force, spreading across national borders and impacting every shore:


A nation with the potential to disrupt the world as it hovers on the edge between hardline Islamic totalitarianism and youthful hunger for freedom.


An emerging global superpower with 1.3 billion people and a driving ambition to dominate the world with military, economic, and technical power.

Northern India

Home to the most ancient and entrenched spiritual strongholds and dark religions, and the highest concentration of unreached peoples.

Middle East

The heart of the Muslim world with new opportunities for the Gospel in the wake of the Arab Spring.

Central Asia

A region rich in culture and oil wealth that has been targeted by aggressive Islam but longs for modernization and a place on the world stage.


Where centuries of Christian heritage is in retreat from an onslaught of secularization and new-age spirituality, and where Islam is rapidly growing through immigration and proselytization.

The Sahel

A bloody fault-line between expansionist Islam in Northern Africa and a still-maturing Christianity in the South.

The Terra Nova Project connects and empowers churches, ministries, and individuals to bring the transforming power and change agency of the Gospel to the sources of these seven tsunami waves.
