'International Day for the Unreached' event focuses on billions who have never heard the gospel

File PhotoArticle By Marge Densley // EEW Magazine

Scores of Christian radio networks and stations across the country are preparing churches, small groups and individuals this week for the International Day for the Unreached, May 15, Pentecost Sunday. 

The one-day event is intended to inspire and mobilize Christians to reach out to the more than 2.8 billion people around the world who have yet to hear the gospel.

The event is sponsored by the Alliance for the Unreached, a group of globally focused outreach ministries that includes Missio Nexus, Reach Beyond, Bibles For The World, Operation Mobilization and The Seed Company.

As part of the national awareness effort, Wycliffe Bible Translators and Christian radio station Z88 in the Orlando area are hosting a major event with free live music, tours and food trucks on Saturday, May 14, to highlight the need to reach the unreached and will be broadcasting live from the event. Organizers of the International Day for the Unreached will be in attendance. 

"With more than 2 billion people who haven't had a chance to meet Jesus, it's time for the Body of Christ to take a radical stand and say, 'This has to end in our generation,'" said Pastor Rick Warren of the Saddleback Church. "Join me in committing to pray, give, go, and advocate for those who need to know Christ by participating in the International Day for the Unreached."
 
The alliance aims to bring a fresh focus to the "Great Commission," Christ's call to his followers to carry his message to the ends of the earth.
 
"If every follower of Jesus could see themselves as God created them to be, and then go be it where he is not worshipped, we would change the face of missions and also the unreached world," said Andrew Scott, president and CEO of Operation Mobilization.
 
People interested in learning more about the unreached or how to get involved can download a free "Great Commission Action Guide" from the website, DayForTheUnreached.org.

Information is also available on the International Day for the Unreached Facebook page at bit.ly/1WeVm0t.
 
The International Day for the Unreached falls on Pentecost Sunday, the day the Holy Spirit came upon the first followers of Jesus, empowering and charging them to share the gospel with people from all over the world.
 
"Let's not forget that the return of Christ is tied to every nation hearing the good news," said John L Pudaite, president of Bibles For The World. "We're not saying we can usher in the Second Coming. But we can be a part of a last days move of God that is foretold in scripture. And that's both a privilege and a profound responsibility."
