Unreached people in the U-S targets of evangelism

By January 21, 2004

USA (MNN) — If you can believe it…there are unreached people in the United States. American Missionary Fellowship is aware of the situation and they’re doing something about it.

Beginning in March, AMF will begin training missionaries to start US based ‘Learning Communities’, according to AMF’s Ed Henderson. “We believe it’s a time in America that we need to create a new spin on Bible studies and we’re calling them learning communities,” says Henderson.

“We want them to focus on reaching some unreached people groups in the U-S. At the same time a discipleship aspect will take place where we’re training other leaders that will be able to take the Bible study and continue to lead it,” says Henderson.

Henderson says on many college campuses there are many indigenous American citizens that have never heard the Gospel. At the same time there are many students from countries outside the United States who also have never heard.

Those statistics are similar in the urban centers in the country. Henderson says, “There are those in our inner cities and our suburbs that are unreached because no one has taken the Gospel into those communities. Neighborhood after neighborhood where there is no influence of the church whatsoever.”

By establishing Biblical learning centers people will come because four out of 10 people nationwide are interested in knowing more about the Bible. Henderson believes this could be an incredible opportunity to see change in the United States.

12 ‘Learning Communities’ are being established short-term. Pray that even more people will respond to the need to join this outreach.
