Unreached People Groups

A people group is the largest group within which the gospel can spread as a church planting movement without encountering barriers of understanding or acceptance. An unreached people group is where less than 2% of that population are believers. Unengaged unreached people groups means there aren’t any workers among them with a church planting strategy underway.

Total People Groups = 11,504
Total Unreached People Groups = 6,817
Total Engaged People Groups = 3,703
Total Unengaged People Groups = 3,114

There are 1,800 people groups without any Scripture. 80% of the world’s population, though, do not have a written language and therefore cannot depend on textual means for hearing the gospel.

Below are the three people groups New North Church is committing to reach in Asia, Africa and India. Do you have a heart for Asia, Africa, or India? Be part of a prayer group for the unreached people groups that New North has adopted. Vision/survey trips are coming up for each one, and we need them to be bathed in prayer before, during and after.



Asia has 442 unreached people groups.



India has 2,077 unreached people groups.



There are many unreached people groups in Africa.
