Reach The Unreached


Joshua Project

Joshua Project, a ministry of the U.S. Center for World Mission is an incredible resource for understanding the task remaining as it relates to Unreached people groups.  Joshua Project is a research initiative seeking to highlight the ethnic people groups of the world with the least followers of Christ.

Joshua Project seeks to answer the questions that result from the Great Commission’s call to make disciples among every nation or people group:

  • Who are the ethnic people groups of the world?
  • Which people groups still need an initial church-planting movement in their midst?
  • What ministry resources are available to help outreach among the least-reached?

In doing so, they have gathered in depth statistics on the over 6,500 people groups that are Unreached/least-reached, based on the criteria of less than 2% Evangelical and less than 5% Christian adherents.

They have great graphics and tools to be able to locate where in the world the different Unreached people groups are located.  One of the coolest tools they have is “Unreached in Google Earth.”  You can zoom in around the world and see where the Unreached are located and get specifics on each of the different groups.

They also have a graphic on their start page called “Find Unreached People,” where you can drag your curser across a map of the world and as you do so, the “Unreached people group status” of each country pops up.

The Joshua Project is one comprehensive website.  Spend some time looking it over and get an idea of what’s left to do as it relates to finishing the task of going and making disciples of all the nations/peoples.
