We are excited to announce our partnership with the Alliance for the Unreached, which is promoting the need for more focus on the 2 billion people around the globe with no easy access of the Gospel.
This event will be held on Pentecost Sunday—the day when the Holy Spirit fell upon the early church, empowering members to take the good news to the ends of the earth—this year's concert, celebration and challenge, will be held at the headquarters of Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs. The event will be live-streamed, with artists and speakers to be announced next month!
While sharing a common goal—fulfilling the "Great Commission" to spread the good news to the ends of the earth—alliance partners work toward it in diverse ways, demonstrating the wide range of opportunities and needs.
The expansion of the alliance was announced at "Proclaim 18," The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) International Christian Media Convention, in Nashville. The now 11-strong alliance is seeking to inspire churches and individuals by reports of what is being done among unreached groups, and involve them in further efforts through prayer, giving, and action. Centerpiece of the drive is the International Day for the Unreached.
The Alliance for the Unreached is urging a reclamation of the real meaning of the word "unreached," which it says has been diluted and so lost its impact. Unreached peoples are not just all non-Christians, but rather those who have yet had no access to the gospel because of political or religious barriers, geographical location, or simple neglect.
"The unreached are those who have yet to have the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel. They are not our friends, family, neighbors or co-workers who may not be Christians. These people are not unreached, because they have us. The truly unreached live in places where no one is there to tell them about Jesus."
More than 6 million people learned about the International Day for the Unreached on Facebook last year. We're excited to see how God is going to show up and extend the audience for this year's event!
