Reaching the Unengaged Unreached People Groups

world mapWhat is a people group?  It is a group of people who have the same language, culture, history, customs and family/clan identities. For strategic purposes, a people group is the largest group through which the gospel can flow without encountering significant barriers of understanding and acceptance.

What is an Unreached Unengaged People Group? These people groups do not have any resources to hear about or discover the gospel of Jesus Christ. They have no Bibles in their language, no Jesus film, no missionaries in their area, no one reaching out to or praying for them. Our goal is to adopt these groups below and begin these following steps: 

1. Adopt to Pray: Pray for our adopted people groups.As we are partnering together to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth, we are engaged in spiritual warfare so prayer is key! Things to pray for right now:

  • Barriers to the Gospel to be broken down
  • God to send more laborers to the field to reach them
  • God to prepare hearts of the peoples to receive Him
  • Any missionaries that may be working among that people group

There are 3 people groups FBC The Colony has felt led to adopt.
