Every person is thirsty for something, but only one thing will quench the thirst and flood the dry ground of the heart.  Jesus said, “Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.”

Jesus was talking about a radical change of our heart.  Jesus was always after the heart of whoever He encountered. He was not interested in changing their outward behavior, but wanted to see a revolution surge in their heart, a life transformed by an encounter with the real God!

The mission of Flood the Nations is to bring the water of Christ to a thirsty world because we are all pursued by a loving, passionate and adventurous God that is calling us to know Him, to share His love with others and to live the unique life He gave us.

Flood the Nations reaches youth, students, and young adults through cross-cultural FTN Missions, Thirsty Generation conferences and the Mission Water Project. We are an interdependent parachurch organization that serves the body of Christ.

How it all started:

In 2006, Matt Tarka and a group of young adults were invited to Uganda, Africa to hold a crusade and outreach project in Gulu, Uganda where the documentary Invisible Children was filmed about the LRA and Joseph Kony strangle hold on the region. His rebels abducted children and forced them into his army, butchering people in the villages.

The team made the dangerous journey into rebel territory to do outreach and bring hope to the region. For two weeks where they saw many people believe in Christ for the first time, many were physically healed, and they provided food and clothing for hundreds at refugee camps.

Since the first trip, FTN has sent multiple teams back to Uganda teaching, praying, feeding, clothing and sharing the love of God. Other teams have been sent to Honduras, Nepal, Georgia, Ireland, Italy, and Belize.


FTN Mission and the Mission Water Project (MWP) is growing in Honduras with teams going annually.  We are expanding MWP into Haiti and Dominican Republic.

In addition, the Thirsty Generation conferences are impacting youth, students and young adults with the love, grace and power of God in regions across the United States.

FTN Oversight: 

Flood the Nations is governed by a board of directors who are responsible for the oversight of FTN and fulfillment of the vision and purpose of the organization.  In addition, an advisory board made up of pastors and elders from multiple churches provides accountability and counsel to the board regularly.
