Unreached Within Reach
June 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - June 29, 2019 @ 9:00 pm
In 2019, there are still 7,063 unreached people groups-41.5% of the world population (according to The Joshua Project). The world is in our backyards here in the DC Metro area, but we sometimes find ourselves not knowing what to do, what to say, or how to reach those within reach. This stay-at-home mission could be your next step!
Join Global Gates staff for 3 ½ days of prayer, training, and outreach to unreached people groups within reach. We hope this mission week will help enlarge your view of God’s global mission, will equip you to join in His mission, and will propel you to go reach those He has brought here.
Here’s more information about Global Gates and how we can go into our world with the good news this summer to make and equip growing disciples of Jesus Christ.
The mission of Global Gates is to see gospel transformation of the world’s most unevangelized people groups who have come to global gateway cities, and through them reach their communities around the world.
God has brought Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, Atheists, and Animists from all over the world to the crowded urban corridor between Washington D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland. A magnet for internationals, diplomats, dignitaries, international students, and visiting scholars, the D.C.-Baltimore hub poses a real challenge to Christian witness. However, it also presents an unparalleled opportunity for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through these communities to the ends of the earth.
While immigrants come from 190 nations, our priority attention goes to those from these least-reached nations and people groups: India, China, Vietnam, Pakistan, and Iran.
In addition to immigrants, many internationals come for a short time and then return to their country of origin. The D.C.-Baltimore area is home to more than 20,000 international students awaiting campus ministry. The majority of these students come from least-reached countries such as China, India, and Saudi Arabia. The D.C.-Baltimore hub also attracts scholars to world-renowned centers of learning such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology, National Institutes of Health, and Johns-Hopkins University.
Christian witness is needed to bring the gospel to these unreached communities and reach through them their countries of origin.
