A ONE Gathering is an evening devoted to celebrating the purpose and passion of overseas work through stories and updates of what is happening in unique places around the globe. Learn more about ELIC’s newest region in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) and opportunities to engage in the exciting work there. Lou Malnati's pizza included. This event is free, but space is limited.
Although 70% of the world's population has heard the gospel in some form, 30% of the world (two billion people) has had virtually no exposure to the gospel message. As a result, there exists 1,600 people groups in which less than 2% of their population is evangelical Christian. The majority of these least-reached peoples live in areas of religious restriction, with great language and cultural barriers to the spread of the gospel.
For the past 25 years, our missions policy has explicitly stated our intention to give priority to those areas in which the opportunity for hearing the gospel is relatively small. Today some of the largest least-reached people groups are found in India, China, Pakistan, Yemen, Indonesia, Iran, Tunisia and Vietnam.
