1 Metro Washington D.C. People Group Strategy Taking the Gospel to the Nations

2 People Group Strategy Taking the Gospel to the Nations Who is here, where are they, and how can we reach them with the gospel? A small but effective missionary staff Thousands of volunteer man hours Mapping the nations at our door step For the following reasons

3 Kingdom of God Purposes To get the gospel to those people groups in need of the gospel To win the lost, start churches, and send indigenous witnesses back to their home country To equip and enable churches to live Great Commission lives here

4 To the Nations… in our backyard The research – process – Tier 1 – Census data – Tier 2 – “boots on the ground” – Use POI clustering to locate people group hot spots and/or people group clusters – Assess the gospel need – Map out the city

5 To the Nations… in our backyard The Research – preliminary findings – ethno-linguistic people groups – Many areas of the DC MSA have more international people than Americans – However, EPGs associate differently here – Research has indicated a strategy primarily along linguistic lines, at least initially – Key unreached and unengaged people groups have been located along with points of entry

6 To the Nations… in our backyard Great benefits for the Great Commission Resources – the resources it takes to get to these people are a tiny fraction of the cost to reach them overseas Access – we have wide open access to the most closed people groups in the world now Ease of sharing – since they are on “our turf,” no platform is necessary, and they cannot kick us out of our own country for sharing the gospel

7 To the Nations… in our backyard How do we reach the nations in our backyard? – Pray believing that the God of the Nations will provide the harvest – Work with a network of churches to reach identified people groups with the gospel – Look past our preferences – Develop an understanding of a people group and cultural distinctives – Locate, equip, and train indigenous leaders – Plant indigenous churches that can then reach their people group
