At ICP our goal is simple - to disciple the harvest, and to reach nations. However, according to Romans 10:14 “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” There is another problem in this situation, how can we go to a people and meet their needs if we are not aware of them?
In recent months we have been made aware of an incredible resource that seeks to make people groups with little to no Christ followers public knowledge. This resource is called the Joshua Project and can be accessed here: https://joshuaproject.net.
Joshua Project : “gathers, integrates and shares people group information to encourage pioneer church-planting movements among every ethnic group and to facilitate effective coordination of mission agency efforts. Joshua Project compiles the work of numerous missions researchers to develop a list of all ethnic peoples that is as complete as possible.” Every single day Joshua Project produces an unreached of the day with the people group name, population, and primary religion. They also have details about the culture of the people group, ministry obstacles, outreach ideas, and the current percentage of known Christians within the people group.
