6,500 unreached people groups. According to missionary resources, like the International Mission Board, that is how many peoples have not heard the Good News of Jesus Christ. Unreached means that less than 2% are Christian; unengaged means the Gospel has not been taken to them yet. We are mandated to take the Gospel throughout the entire world to fulfill the Great Commission and see the glorious return of our Savior! "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come." (Matthew 24:14)
At Parkway Place, we’re developing Christ-followers who are firmly rooted in Christ such that each of us is willing to do whatever it takes of time, talent, and treasure to reach those who are unreached and unengaged with the Gospel. As part of the ongoing Radical Experiment, Parkway Place is actively engaging measures to commit more resources to missional work. The challenge is for each individual and family to do the same. We want to equip every individual and family to go wherever God leads us to take the Gospel. The prospect can be intimidating, to say the least. But we’re all called to go and what God calls us to do, He promises to faithfully fulfill to completion! Here’s a few ways we’re currently engaged in God’s global plan.
The Radical Experiment
Radical Radical is not a term of fanaticism, but radical in terms of being deeply rooted in Christ. An excellent resource to jump in is the Radical Experiment. The five year-long challenges are purposed to draw attention to His global Kingdom work, so that every people group will hear of and know His Good News! Check it out to learn more!
