What Is an Unreached People Group?

By now most of you know that my family is preparing to move to South Asia to plant churches amongst unreached people groups. In July I answered the question, "Why Move to South Asia to Plant Churches?"http://t.co/OlC95aa, in which I quoted the statistic from Desiring God International that over 70% of Asian's have yet to hear of Jesus Christ, even for the first time.

When referring to most Asian peoples, there is much talk of going to reach the unreached, but I believe that many times people are unaware of what that really means. In fact, on a regular basis I receive this exact question from people, "What is an unreached people group?"

What Is an Unreached People Group? from Pioneers-USA on Vimeo.
In order to answer that question today I am going to quote a Pioneer in Central Asia, from the video above, who says of unreached people groups, "We're not talking about people who are lost and don't know the Lord; we're talking about people who are lost and don't know the Lord and there's no one that speaks their language that can tell them. There is no church that exists... That's an unreached people group."
