Adopt a People Group


What is a people group? It is a group of people who have the same language, culture, history, customs and family/clan identities. For strategic purposes, a people group is the largest group through which the gospel can flow without encountering significant barriers of understanding and acceptance.

Your church can have a key role
 in bringing an unreached people group to Christ. Adopting a people group helps churches take an active and direct role in missions.
