Unreached People Groups are one of LAC's 7 priority initiatives.
Our vision to reach Unreached People Groups (UPGs) in LAC is deeply rooted in the life and words of Christ, who made disciples who, in turn, made disciples, and who commanded that we go into all the world and preach the good news. Jesus said this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. We believe, according to scripture, that every person is important to God, that He wants that each and every one of them to have a chance to hear the message about his Son Jesus, and that people from every nation tribe and tongue will be gathered around the throne of God.
Our mission is to take the message of Jesus to unreached peoples from a wide array of cultures and settings. LAC is home to hundreds of indigenous tribal groups, many of whom are found in isolated areas such as jungles and mountains. Latin America is also experiencing a large influx of immigrants from all over the world, but especially people of Middle Eastern and Chinese descent. Many other long standing cultures which immigrated many years ago add to the numbers of unreached people groups, as well as a large deaf population.
Our strategy is to join hands and resources with our brothers from the national churches as they have emerged as a great missionary force. With strong collaboration between the North Americans and our Latino brothers, we have a much larger, stronger, and better equipped team to reach the unreached. To meet the needs of these cultures, together we are rethinking traditional ideas of the church and how the Kingdom of God is to be expanded. We are learning and teaching new strategies in order to bring our UPG missionaries to a new level of mobility, effectiveness, and sustainability of the work. We also continue to develop ministry resources that can be used throughout region to facilitate teamwork and which can be adapted to different settings.
We are committed to reaching the remaining 16,158,475 people among the 405 unreached people groups who have yet to hear the message of Salvation. By the power of the Holy Spirit, they are reachable.
