Bringing the Gospel to unreached peoples.


Now, more than ever, unreached people are within reach. God is using migration to bring people from the ends of the earth right into our own backyards. We are privileged to work with International Project as partners in church planting among diaspora living in American cities.

What in the world are we doing?

Give


We believe every follower of Jesus is called to live a life of generosity. The question is whether your call to sacrificial giving and our call to ministry line up. Is God stirring you to use your generosity to equip our work? If so, you can support us through either a one-time gift or by making room in your budget to give monthly.

Pray


What we can’t do tangibly, the Lord can do miraculously. Prayer isn’t a consolation prize, it’s an incredible way to join the ranks in missions. And we believe that God will not only use it to bless us, but to transform those who pray as well.

FAQ

What is Diaspora?

Diaspora refers to groups of people who have migrated from their homeland and now live in a foreign culture. Because of migration, we have the opportunity to minister to groups of people who before had little to no access to the gospel.

Engaging in diaspora ministry is strategic for many reasons, including: The major change in their environment turns their worldview upside down. This leaves many individuals more open to the Gospel than they might have been if they stayed home.

Individuals are often highly connected to their families and friends back home in their countries of origin. This is reflected by many money transfer businesses and shipping businesses in diaspora contexts as well as frequent conversational references to video conferencing with family and friends.

Individuals in diaspora communities are often highly educated and relatively wealthy. This makes them influential in their communities. They may travel back to their home countries frequently to visit friends and family.

When diaspora people receive the gospel in a Western setting, they are likely to share it with their new communities here and with their families and friends back home.

What are Unreached People Groups?

There are approximately 2.4 billion people today who have no access to the gospel. These people are “unreached,” not only because of their spiritual lostness but also because of their limited access to the gospel.

According to the Joshua Project, a people group is: “A significantly large grouping of individuals who perceive themselves to have a common affinity with one another. For evangelization purposes, a people group is the largest group within which the Gospel can spread as a church planting movement without encountering barriers of understanding or acceptance.”

An “unreached people group” is often defined as a people group that is less than 2 percent evangelical Christian — a “critical mass.” At this point, missiologists have determined that the indigenous community can then spread the gospel themselves. Similar terms to unreached people groups include “least-reached,” “unengaged unreached people groups” (UUPG), and “last frontier people groups.” There are various terms and subcategories, but the vision remains the same. We want to see every people group reached with an active indigenous church spreading the gospel. We can accomplish this by reaching Immigrants in New York City.

Why New York City?

Millions of people from unreached people groups live in New York City. International Project is designed to teach participants the underlying ministry paradigms that lead to church-planting movements. They also train participants in the hands-on ministry skills and best practices that lead to church-planting movements. They're not training missionaries to reach one person with the gospel – they're training them to reach thousands.

With over 52 unreached people groups in New York City, there is plenty of work to do! Our vision is to see disciple-making and church-planting movements happen among all the unreached people groups in international cities like New York and the 7,000 unreached people groups around the world!

International Project is a registered 501(c)3 religious organization in the US. All donations International Project receives with preference for its’ workers, projects, or general purposes are tax-deductible, providing that no services were provided in return for the donation.
