Unreached People Group Ministry (UPG)

Our unreached people group ministry is specifically focused on building bridges for the Gospel into the 52 unreached people groups of New York City. On your UPG ministry team you will:

  • live among a specific unreached people group
  • develop and execute a plan to reach your UPG
  • practice cross-cultural evangelism while focusing on abundant gospel sowing 
  • start a Discovery Bible Study or use T4T to reproduce disciples within your UPG

Currently, workers with International Project and participants in our missionary training program, EQUIP, are reaching out to unreached people groups all over New York City. Check out what we’re up to below!
