3 Global Status of Evangelical Christianity 2013 Edition

4 Global Status of Evangelical Christianity 2013 Edition European Peoples You may be surprised to learn the largest number of European Peoples lives in Russia. Though dispersed around the world, today they are a shrinking percentage of the population in European nations, as immigrants from around the globe continue pouring in.

5 Global Status of Evangelical Christianity 2013 Edition Northern African and Middle Eastern Peoples Mention this affinity group and most people immediately think of Arabs and the cradle of Islam. Yet this affinity encompasses people groups as diverse as Jews, Berbers, and Ethiopians. Islam is by far the predominant religion, but traditional religions, Christianity, and Judaism all have significant presence and influence.

6 Global Status of Evangelical Christianity 2013 Edition Sub-Saharan African Peoples The heartbreak of AIDS may be the first thing that comes to mind when Sub-Saharan African peoples are mentioned. Devastating disease and extreme poverty remain major obstacles for many of these peoples, but they also boast a number of vibrant and growing evangelical communities.

7 Global Status of Evangelical Christianity 2013 Edition Central Asian Peoples Largely hidden from the rest of the world for years behind the Iron Curtain, Central Asian peoples have emerged as key players on the global stage, yet they remain among the world’s least evangelized peoples. Islam’s grip on this part of the world remains strong.

8 Global Status of Evangelical Christianity 2013 Edition South Asian Peoples The Indo-Aryan cultures that entered the sub-continent four millenia ago continue to dominate south Asia through a pervasive caste system. The castes themselves function virtually as distinct ethnic groups, contributing to the high number of people groups identified in this densely populated region of the world.

9 Global Status of Evangelical Christianity 2013 Edition East Asian Peoples A defining characteristic of the East Asian Peoples affinity group is the cultural influence of Han Chinese on other peoples in the region and the lingering influence of those cultures on the Chinese. Major cultures besides the Han Chinese include the Japanese, Koreans, and Mongolians.

10 Global Status of Evangelical Christianity 2013 Edition Southeast Asian Peoples The traditional homelands of Southeast Asian peoples include Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, and Thailand, where the king is considered the upholder of Buddhism. The many people groups of southeast Asia practice a variety of religions, including Christianity.

11 Global Status of Evangelical Christianity 2013 Edition American Peoples The American Peoples affinity encompasses the peoples of North, Central, and South America, along with many island-countries of the Caribbean. Modern-day descendants of the ancient civilizations of the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas mingle with recent immigrant peoples to form this diverse mix.

12 Global Status of Evangelical Christianity 2013 Edition Deaf Peoples More than 225 million people in the world are unable to hear well enough to rely on hearing to process information. Within that number, 35 million Deaf function inside unique cultures and languages that supersede other ethnic distinctions.
