World Outreach’s New Look

Just few more days until the launch of World Outreach’s (WO) new look. A few important things will change, such as our website, a new logo, a revised mission statement and more.

The launch date is Thursday 11th April. I’ll write again on that day and provide links and a quick clip to tell you more. We can’t wait to share it with you.

Importantly, some things will not change, such as our commitment to reach the unreached. World Outreach exists to bring the Good News of Jesus (the Gospel) to those who have never heard. Importantly, WO’s end goal is not just to evangelise, but to make disciples. People become disciples (followers of Jesus) through evangelism, but they grow and mature in their faith through the process of discipleship.

The terms ‘least-reached people group’ (LRP) or ‘unreached people group’ (UPG) are used in missions circles to describe an ethnolinguistic people group ‘among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group without outside assistance.

In the definition above, a people group is designated as ‘least-reached’ or ‘unreached’ because they cannot evangelise or disciple their own people ‘without outside assistance’. To WO, success is not measured by just presenting the gospel to an unreached people group, but by discipling Christians within a people group to be able to reach (through evangelism) and disciple (through disciple-making) their own people without external help. In short, WO’s objective is to equip, enable and empower the people they have reached and discipled to do the same for their own people. 
WO’s goal would be that the people group it has reached would be sufficiently enabled (through teaching and training) to not only evangelise and disciple their own people, but fulfill the Great Commission by going to another LRP/UPG to evangelise and disciple them. 

Thank you for your partnership in reaching the unreached.

God bless,
Bruce Hills
International Director
