“100 year ago we sent missionaries to the nations to look for the cities. Today you go to the cities and you find the nations" Dr. Ray Bakke “Diaspora missiology may well be the most important undigested reality in missions thinking today." Dr. Ralph Winter “one of the greatest ironies in missions today is the fact that although we have a good understanding of the evangelical status of many of the world’s peoples in other nations, for the most part, we are ignorant regarding the evangelical status of the peoples of the world living in our backyards.” Dr. J.D. Payne
Globalization, Urbanization and Migration is changing the world Migration is taken place in every nation of the world. However certain regions have higher concentrations than others. The USA is the #1 destination of migrants from around the world, with over 42 million recent migrants now in USA. There are now 8 U.S. cities with a foreign born population of 1 million The most recent migration is coming from many places of the world considered “Unreached” There may be as many as 360 “Unreached People Groups” in the U.S. representing a population of over 20 million
In the unevangelized world, there are 20,500 full-time Christian workers and 10,200 foreign missionaries attempting to reach an Unengaged and Unreached population of over 2.9 billion people who are resistant to the Gospel so how can we better reach them? There are 100 million Evangelical Christians in the “evanglelized” U.S., with 20 million people from Unengaged & Unreached People Groups new to America - many of whom are open to hearing the Gospel – but do we know they are here? Should we focus on getting “missionaries” to the “unevangelized world” to reach UPGs or do we focus on getting “missionaries” into our cities to reach UPGs from the “unevangelized world?”And/Both
