Each EPC presbytery¹ launching a church planting team
among an Unreached²
 Muslim People Group by 2025.


The EPC’s vision for Engage 2025 is comprised of three aspects:

  1. Thoroughly evangelical: proclaiming the good news of life in Jesus;
  2. Specifically Presbyterian: through the power of churches linked by faith and geography (a presbytery!); and
  3. Desperately urgent: among people who have no intentional, witnessing Jesus-followers active among them.


  • Penetrating communities where no Jesus-followers are actively engaged in disciple-making
  • A resident apostolic (frontier church-planting) effort
  • Committing to work in the local language and culture
  • Committing to long-term (until the vision is realized) ministry
  • Sowing in a manner consistent with the replication (goal of at least 3 generations)


  • Occasional short-term ministry trips
  • Foreigners working through translators
  • Starting model churches impossible for indigenous believers to replicate
  • Compassion and mercy ministries without an intentional disciple-making movement strategy
  1. When Engage 2025 was first launched, the EPC had 10 presbyteries. Currently there are 13 presbyteries.
  2. An Unreached People Group (UPG) is a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group without outside assistance.
