3 Billion Unreached




Imagine one day in eternity, someone comes up to you and says, “You have no idea who I am. We have never met. But you prayed that God would send a missionary to my people group, and He did! And now I am worshiping Jesus with you for all of eternity. Thank you for praying!”
The most effective and impactful thing you can do to reach the 3 billion who have little or no access to the gospel can be done right now in your home, church, car – anywhere. You can pray for the 3 billion now. . .and impact eternity! 
  • Download the Joshua Project “Unreached of the Day” prayer app on your mobile phone. You will learn about a different unreached people group each day and how you can pray for them. 
  • Download the Operation World prayer app on your mobile phone to pray for a different country of the world each day. 
Helping Your Church Pray
  • Sign up to be on our wonderful, spiritually strategic EPC World Outreach Prayer NetworkThis is a secure website where our EPC World Outreach global workers can post prayer requests regarding their ministries. Those who sign up to be on our prayer network are then notified immediately of these requests via email, and they can then log on to the website and pray for these requests as soon as they are posted.  
  • Almost every presbytery has a group that prays on a regular basis for the unreached people of their Engage 2025 effort. Through your pastor, you can contact your Presbytery Mission Chair or Engage 2025 leader to join that regular prayer group. (For example the Presbytery of the East meets every other Tuesday morning at 8:15am to pray for 5 unreached people groups of the North Caucasus.)
  • During your worship services, pray for the missionaries your church supports (by name, if you have permission) and for the over 7,400 people groups in the world with little or no access to the gospel – over 3 billion people! 
  • Commit yourselves to corporate prayer and fasting for a clear missions vision and strategy for your particular church. As the church at Antioch fasted and prayed, God set apart Saul and Barnabas to take the gospel to the unreached (Acts 13:1-3). 
  • Utilize the inspirational and well produced videos at PrayerCast to pray for nations and people groups with little or no access to the gospel. These videos are often done in restricted countries and the voices leading you in prayer are often of former Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, etc. who are now followers of Jesus!   
  • The Joshua Project website has a very thorough database of unreached, least access people groups on the internet for prayer.  
  • The IMB (International Mission Board) also has extremely valuable information on unreached people groups. 
  • During the Muslim month of Ramadan, pray for Muslims as they seek God in those 30 days more fervently than during any other time of the year. Prayer guides are available here from Run Ministries.   
  • Buy the book, Pray for the World, and pray faithfully each day for the unreached people groups of the world. 
  • Wycliffe Bible Translators invites people to join The Bibleless Peoples Prayer Project to pray for those without the Bible in their language.  
  • Order free prayer maps from Every Home For Christ.  
  • Purchase a hard copy – or download for free – the booklet, Let All The Peoples Praise You, from David Platt’s group, Radical – 30 days of praying for urgent needs among the nations. Check out Radical’s website to learn more about these urgent needs.       
  • Set an alarm on your phone for 10:40 to pray for the “10/40 Window” – the location where most of the 3 billion people live today in spiritual and physical poverty – or 10:02 to pray according to Jesus’ instruction in Luke 10:2 to pray for workers to be sent into the harvest fields.  
  • Do “prayer walks” by college dorms of international students, by your local mosque, or by Hindu or Buddhist temples, and pray that God would reach those right here in the US who have never heard the gospel. 
  • Do as one EPC pastor’s wife does in Ohio: load up the family van, go to the nearest mosque, sit in the parking lot, and pray for the Muslim leaders and people of that mosque to know Jesus! 
  • Host a 24-hour prayer event for the unreached. Set up a physical prayer site at your church. Sign people up for one-hour shifts to pray in the prayer room or zoom in from home. You can have background worship music, maps on the walls to pray over countries, post-it-notes for participants to write prayers on to display on the wall, etc.  
  • Check your clothing tags each morning to see where your clothes were made and pray that the people living there would be able to hear the gospel and become believers. 
  • Pray through world headlines by watching or reading the news and then praying for the global events God might be using to advance His Kingdom. 
  • Pray through selected world news from a Christian source such as Mission Network News.   
  • Pray for the persecuted believers around the world from Open Doors.  
  • Pray for the persecuted believers around the world from Voice of the Martyrs.  
  • Laminate a prayer list of selected unreached people groups and keep it in your Bible, journal, car, or put it on your refrigerator or bathroom mirror. 
  • Always, always, always, pray for more laborers for the harvest fields! Jesus taught us to pray this way (Matthew 9:37-38; Luke 10:2). 
  • Pray prayers about your involvement in reaching the 3 billion like this: 
    • “Father, how do You want me to get involved with missions? Am I to be a goer, a sender, an intercessor? What is my next step that would bring the most glory to You in missions?”  
    • “What have You given me in talents, time, and resources that I can give back to serve You and those who have little or no access to the gospel?” 
    • “What places or people groups are You highlighting to me?” 
    • “What have You put on my heart about the 3 billion that I can actually do something about?” 
Helping Your Family Pray
  • Buy the book, Window on the World for kids and pray faithfully each day for the unreached people groups of the world.   
  • Order free prayer maps for kids from Every Home for Christ.  
  • In praying with your family, consider adding praying for unreached people groups to any already established family prayer times: before a meal, before bedtime, on the way to or from school, etc. 


Find immigrants, refugees, or international students from unreached people groups where you live and find ways to serve them and share the gospel with them! 

“You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.” (Leviticus 19:34, ESV) 

International Students (over 1 million in the US)
  • Become a “Friendship Partner” by contacting ISI (International Students Inc.) to partner with them in strategically reaching international students on university campuses all over the US.  
  • Contact a similar organization, Bridges International (a division of CRU) for outreach to international students on university campuses who will go home and influence their nations.  
  • If you are a college student, consider being a RA (resident advisor) in an international dorm to get to know students from all over the world. 
  • As you find international students in your area, invite them to join you for a meal at a restaurant or better yet, at your home or apartment.  Most of them will never be invited into an American home during their time in the US! 
  • Create experiences with them to make them feel that someone sees them and cares about them. Take them to state or national parks, baseball games, county or state fairs, family beaches, museums, etc.  
  • Connect with the International Student Office at your local university and attend events and activities for international students so you can make connections.  
  • As a university student, go where international students gather and intentionally spend time there to meet them – the student union, bus stops, certain places in the cafeteria, etc. 
  • Download the app, WhatsApp, on your cell phone.  This app is very popular with international students and is a great way to communicate with them here and when they go back home to countries that you may never visit!

  • Give a Bible to your international friend in their language and ask if you can share some stories from it. 
  • Invite your international friends to attend a worship service at your church but prepare them in advance for what they will experience.  Make sure to ask the pastor, staff, and friends at church to be ready to welcome them warmly.

Refugees & Immigrants
  • Help refugees and immigrants learn English using ESL and conversational English classes where you can be an “English language partner.”

In the Church

Amidst the busyness of all the other ministries vying for attention, when missions is given a prominent place in the church, every other aspect of the church can benefit and be strengthened. 

  • To begin, learn more about EPC World Outreach on our website, and also subscribe to The Reach.   
  • In the pulpit, in Sunday School classes, in small groups, in VBS: teach what the Bible says about God’s heart for all nations (distinct people groups with their own language and culture) to know and worship Him. Learn more about the over 7,400 least access people groups at the Joshua Project.   
  • Participate in your own Presbytery’s Engage 2025 missions venture through prayer, short-term trips, and giving opportunities.

  • Are you a college student or do you have college students in your church who are interested in missions? EPC WO has Missions Cohorts for just such people. They meet for video chats every month for a year to get to know each other, learn about reaching the unreached, talk to missionaries, and go on a mission trip at the end of the year.   
  • EPC World Outreach is helping to sponsor the 2024 Connecting Mission Leaders (CML) conference. This event will bring together pastors, mission directors, lay leaders, and mission enthusiasts for missiological reflection, worship, prayer, building relationships for new collaboration in mission, sharing best practices, and more. October 24th-26th, 2024 at Hope EPC church in Memphis.  
  • Prayerfully select and hire a missions pastor or director, or find a lay volunteer whose job is to plan, train, promote, and inspire your church regarding all things missions. 
  • Task your missions committee with a strategic plan by utilizing experienced, trustworthy missions consultants such as Matthew Ellison from Sixteen:fifteen 
  • Create a clear process for people to get involved in missions and inform your congregation how to do it. 
  • Create a missions webpage for your church but be careful about listing names, pictures, and locations of your missionaries (ask them first!).  Share prayer requests, Bible verses about missions, compelling stories, suggested books, videos, articles, short-term trip news – anything to stir in your people God’s heart for the unreached.  
  • Encourage your friends at church to watch a free video series from MomentumYes designed to help believers find their place in God’s mission.  
  • Do small group Bible studies on missions from The Travel Team or the Center for Mission Mobilization.    
  • Read and share compelling articles on missions.  
  • Watch the video series, Going Global, from Access Truth.  These videos teach what it takes to go to the nations using the Book of Acts.

  • Invite The Traveling Team to your university to do an exciting, motivating overview of God’s heart for the nations.  
  • Talk one-on-one with people in your church who seem disinterested in the lost people of the world. Pulpit or bulletin announcements seldom move them to interest or action, but sometimes personal conversations can stir interest and follow through.  
  • Don’t forget to remind people of how their efforts – and the usage of their God-given talents and gifts – play an important role in the big picture of reaching the 3 billion with little or no access to the gospel.  
  • Make books about God’s heart for the nations well known in your church through mentions from the pulpit, usage in small groups and SS classes, etc.:

In the Home
  • Read missions related books to your children and grandchildren to help them gain God’s heart for the nations!  Here is a suggested list:   
    • As a guide for parents who long for missions hearted kids, here is a resource for you from Via.     
    • The Center for Missions Mobilization/Weave has books for kids to gain a heart for the nations at a young age and open their hearts to peoples around the world who have never heard of Jesus.  
    • Wycliffe Bible Translators has a wealth of resources for families to learn about missions and the nations.
    • YWAM has quality biographies about missionaries. For younger kids they have the Heroes for Young Readers series. For older kids, they have chapter books in the series, Christian Heroes Then and Now.  
  • There are over 20 well done animated videos for children on YouTube called “The Torchlighters.” Each of these videos are stories of great missionaries or Christian leaders such as George Mueller, Gladys Aylward, Jim Elliott, Mary Slessor, Adoniram & Ann Judson, and Amy Carmichael. (A few of these animated videos speak of martyrdom and perhaps should be watched by parents ahead of time to gauge appropriateness for each child.) 
  • As a family, memorize Scriptures together about God’s heart for the nations such as Genesis 12:1-3, Psalm 67:1-2, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8, and Revelation 5:9 and 7:9.   
  • Adopt a missionary family as a single, family, or small group. 
  • Correspond by letter or e-mail with missionaries.  
  • Read missionary prayer letters as a family.
  • Encourage younger members to correspond with a missionary child. 
  • When telling your children the story of Jesus, share that there are still 3 billion people today who have little or no access to the gospel, and that is why God asks us to go and tell these people about Him. 
  • You can share stories of missionaries in the New Testament, like Philip (Acts 8), Paul (Acts 13), and Aquila and Priscilla (Acts 18). 
  • Make lostness personal for your children and grandchildren by asking questions such as, “What would it be like if you never heard about Jesus?” 
  • Discuss with your kids: “How can you share Jesus with people at your school?”  
  • Discuss with your kids: “Who is someone we can pray will come to know Jesus?” 
  • Ask your children and grandchildren about refugee or immigrant kids at their school: “Have you ever talked to them?”  “What are their names?”  “What country are they from?”  “Would you like to have them visit our home?”   
  • Share about how Jesus cared for people in physical need by healing them, providing food, and commanding us to take care of the poor. Ask kids, “How can we love the poor like Jesus did?” 
  • As a family, sponsor a child who is trapped in poverty by helping monthly with food, schooling, etc.  You can do this through Compassion International or another missions organization you are familiar with. 
  • Encourage your older children or grandchildren to go on short-term trips or even to consider becoming a missionaryIf God is calling them, don’t be the person that holds them back! 
  • When your kids or grandkids have an idea to help missionaries or the people missionaries serve, say “Yes!” as often as possible! 
    •  “Can I sell lemonade and give the money for Bibles in the Middle East?” 
    • “Can I give one of my toys, dolls, etc. to my new friend who moved here from another country?” 
    • “Can I write a letter to a missionary kid to let them know I prayed for them?

Helping Those Preparing to Go
  • Contact EPC World Outreach to inquire about opportunities to send your people to places that have least access to the gospel. We want to serve you in this way! wo@epcwo.org  
  • Give! Support your aspiring missionaries financially. As John Piper said, “All the money needed to send and support an army of self-sacrificing, joy-spreading ambassadors is already in the church.”   
  • Help EPC World Outreach missionaries who have critical financial needs right now. How can they go unless someone sends them (Rom. 10:15)? 
  • Financially support a special EPC World Outreach Project such as providing Christian materials for Afghanistan, developing house churches in Kazakhstan, growing preschools in Lebanon, setting up an FM station with the gospel message in Indonesia – and much more.   
  • Help relieve college debt for those who struggle with this major obstacle to serving overseas (the average college grad has $29,400 in college debt).   
Helping Those on the Field
  • Commit to regular communication with your missionaries.  Answer their email newsletters and write letters and emails or WhatsApp and Signal app messages of encouragement to them (but find out what specific words might be unsafe for them in those messages). 
  • Be intentional about sending birthday and holiday cards to missionaries and their kids. 
  • Create care packages for your missionaries and include their favorite things that they don’t have access to overseas. 
  • Have missions projects at your church such as packing food or seeds to send overseas for missionaries to use and share. 
  • Have a sewers group that make quilts, blankets, dresses, sweaters, etc. to send to missionaries to use and share. 
  • Host a garage or yard sale and give the proceeds to your missionaries. 
  • Sacrifice some Starbucks coffees each week and give that $ to your missionaries! 
Helping Those Home on Furlough
  • Invite your missionaries to come and talk about their ministry in your worship services – and possibly preach on God’s heart for lost people if they are so gifted.   
  • Honor your missionaries publicly without exalting them too much.  (Being a missionary is a role, not a rank.)   
  • Make sure children and youth meet your missionaries and hear them! 
  • Find out if your missionaries want to stay with a host in a home or in a hotel while they are with you (sometimes they need a quiet place away from people due to fatigue from many meetings and travel during their furlough). 
  • Pay for all costs during their time at your church. 
  • Babysit their children for a date or a weekend. 
  • Give them the keys to your lake or mountain cabin for a weekend or a week. 
  • Loan them a car to get around. 


Helping Those Coming Off the Field - Often for Difficult Reasons

See https://christianstandard.com/2013/11/coming-home-when-missionaries-come-off-the-field/ to learn more.   

Missionaries come home after decades of service or brief times on the field.  They come home after successful ministries or outwardly fruitless ventures.  They return because of expulsion, burnout, family health issues, moral failure, loss of vision or passion, inability to work with their team, retirement, and other reasons.  Whatever the time or the reason, they need you to listen and love as they express difficult emotions: 

  • Loss – in leaving the field, they lose coworkers, language tutors, guides, translators, house helpers, shopkeepers, and all the people they wanted to reach with the gospel.  They lose their entire community. 
  • Confusion – feeling lost back in the States regarding our culture which we take for granted.  It’s not “home” to them, or their children. 
  • Purposelessness and uncertainty – “What do we do now?”   
  • Guilt – feelings of failure and shame if their hopes, dreams, and prayers (outwardly, at least) went unrealized. 
  • Grief – in the case of deportation/expulsion, the grief can be intense.   

Other global workers come home with a sense of loss, but also very positive feelings of joy, fulfillment, accomplishment, and excitement about the future. Rejoice with them! 

How You Can Help

  • Pray for and with returning missionaries for their adjustment to a very different life with all its many changes and challenges. 
  • Provide the physical things they need in settling in the US: standard household furniture and supplies they need to create a normal life. You can help with finding a house, moving expenses, and physical labor. 
  • Listen with compassion. Give them time to talk about their lives on the field and their feelings about returning. 
  • Withhold judgment if their return was outwardly premature. You don’t know all the factors that went into their difficult decision. 
  • Help them move forward, but don’t push.   
  • Help them see their worth in Christ, not in their work. 
  • Help them find meaningful work and ministry here as valuable members of the Body of Christ! 


Humbly let go of the idols of safety and comfort and prayerfully consider going to the mission field for the glory of God and the salvation of the lost! 

The church is in greater danger by playing it safe than it is in taking risks to go to least access regions of the world to reach the 3 billion. 

Small churches: you too  can have an impact through prayer, giving, welcoming, and. . .sending!  Mike Stachura said, “The mark of a great church is not its seating capacity, but its sending capacity.”   

Short-Term Trips
  • Contact EPC World Outreach to inquire about opportunities to go on short-term mission trips, especially to places that have least access to the gospel.  We can help you with this!   
  • Contact our EPC World Outreach leader of Short-Term Strategic Tripsabout going to least access places to encourage WO missionaries and see what God is doing in these hard places.  
  • Prepare for a short-term trip by reading the small but essential book, Before You Go,” by Jack Hempfling.   
  • Commission short-term trip members in a worship service and celebrate them and what God did when they return. 
  • Be a committed sender: set up a prayer vigil with signups to pray for short-term goers by hour, day, etc. 
Long-Term Calling
  • First of all, if you feel a calling to the field, are you reaching out to people from other lands. . .right now. . .where you live?  You have a whole list of ideas and ways to be involved on this website page!  You will not do overseas what you do not do at home. 
  • Pray about your motives for going long-term to the mission field?  Why do you want to go?  Write them down and pray over them.  
  • Talk with your parents, pastor, elders, missions leader, and other trusted spiritual leaders about your desire to serve overseas.  Get their honest input and humbly listen (Proverbs 11:14, 12:15).  
  • Speak with missionaries about your interest and ask, ask, ask as many questions as you can of them. 
  • Go on one of the short-term “vision trips” that your church or another group offers to test out your potential calling to missions. 
  • Take a look at just a few opportunities to “Go with WO!” in India, Indonesia, Lebanon, Macedonia, Pakistan, and the Caucasus.   
  • EPC World Outreach partners with other great mission agencies in “co-ops” such as Frontiers, Pioneers, WEC, OM, Teach Beyond, Serge, and others. You can enjoy the benefits of being with EPC World Outreach and one of these groups at the same time. Learn more about co-ops here 
  • There are great opportunities for those retiring from pastoral ministry.  ITEN (International Theological Education) is a place for those interested in helping indigenous leaders by providing theological education. Another possible ministry for retired pastors is providing pastoral care for EPC World Outreach missionaries to help them not just survive but thrive.       
  • If you have a God-given desire to “go,” please look at our Steps to the Field.”   
  • Fill out our Get Started form and we will pray and work with you to discern more of God’s calling on your life to the nations.   
  • Contact our Mobilization Team if you have interest in joining us at EPC World Outreach across the seas.  
  • To reach our EPC World Outreach office, contact wo@epcwo.org for more helpful information!  


This list is compiled by EPC World Outreach staff and workers and also derived from various missions websites. We especially recommend looking at the excellent list from The Traveling Team, from which some of our ideas for missions involvement came from.
