What are churches doing

What Are Churches Doing?

  • About 100 Churches deeply engaged in reaching unreached UPG’s in SBC life.

  • Eighty percent of the world's evangelical wealth is in North America.

  • This total represents way more than enough to fund the fulfillment of the Great Commission.

  • There are approximately 600 evangelical churches worldwide than for every 1 UPG.

What are churches doing1

What Are Churches Doing?

  • “Unfortunately, North American missions organizations tend to target population groups in already-evangelized countries, where converts come more quickly and easily.

  • "96 percent of all foreign missionaries work among existing churches;

  • only 4 percent work where no church exists.”

  • "40 percent of the church's entire foreign mission resources are being deployed to just 10 oversaturated countries already possessing strong citizen-run home ministries."22 Thus, it is not that we lack the resources to evangelize the unreached but that we fail to make it a priority. “
