One Way Ministries President Michael Thompson describes the need to reach the world with the Gospel
Christian churches, media outlets, and believers around the world are coming together on one day to reach out to the more than 2.8 billion people who have never heard the Gospel.
The International Day for the Unreached is a one-day event May 15 that aims to mobilize Christians to advocate for the billions of people around the world who have yet to hear the gospel.
The day is not only special for its mission, but also because it coincides with Pentecost Sunday, which marks the biblical event when the Holy Spirit fell upon the early church and empowered Christ's followers to share the Gospel.
With this biblical mandate in mind, The Alliance for the Unreached, the event's sponsors, is calling on and equipping believers to carry the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
"With more than 2 billion people who haven't had a chance to meet Jesus, it's time for the Body of Christ to take a radical stand and say, 'This has to end in our generation,'" said Pastor Rick Warren of the Saddleback Church. "Join me in committing to pray, give, go, and advocate for those who need to know Christ by participating in the International Day for the Unreached."
One ministry is leading the call for Christians to pray for the salvation of the nations on March 15th. One Way Ministry's Prayercast initiative has created a profile for every nation in the world with specific intructions on how to pray for them. The prayer profile includes quick facts about each nation, a summery of the inhabitant's spiritual condition, and prayer points. Prayercast even provides a video for each country where Christians can pray along with a minister for the nation's unique needs.
