Join us for the evening service as we commission our short-term missions teams for service this summer in Alaska, Bulgaria, Dominican Republic, Greece and Romania. Hear about the trips and the work that they'll be involved with. At the end, we will prayerfully send these teams out to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the Earth.

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.
