Progress Toward Engaging Unreached Peoples

As God continues to lead His church to engage peoples not yet reached with the Gospel, this map illustrates progress toward a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshipping our Lord Jesus Christ. As you view this map, rejoice in how the Gospel has spread among many peoples and pray for the 3,250 people groups that remain unreached and unengaged.
