"My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations" - Mark 11:17


“We must be global Christians with a global vision because our God is a global God.”

Eth-nê is the Greek word Jesus used for “nation”—a word which means tribe, ethnic group or people. Our world today has 6.4 billion individuals living in 234 geo-political nations but over 16,000 ethnê, or people groups, by country. Of those ethnê, more than 6,900 groups remain least-reached. This simply means they are a people group lacking an indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize their own people group. This means 1 in 4 people still remain without reasonable access to the gospel—the Forgotten One Fourth World.

 

Why Are They Least-Reached?
 

  • CULTURAL BARRIERS: persecution, closed to change, Christianity viewed as a “foreign” religion.
     
  • GEOGRAPHIC BARRIERS: remote, harsh climate, difficult access, or nomadic.
     
  • LINGUISTIC BARRIERS: illiteracy, no scripture in their language, unwritten language, terminology confusion.
     
  • POLITICAL BARRIERS: restricted access, evangelism forbidden, hostile environment (including war).
     
  • RELIGIOUS BARRIERS: restrictive religious climate, no freedom of religion, persecution.
     
  • UNRECOGNIZED: believers unaware of the need or the group, small in size, prejudice, isolated from the society in which they live.
