Nearly three billion people in 7000 Unreached People Groups (UPGs) around the world have little or no access to the Gospel, to the Bible, or to the Church.
Crossroads is committed to reaching these groups for Christ.
Here’s how you can help:
- Task Forces - Each Task Force adopts one global field. They work with our partners on the field through prayer, research and projects.
- Prayer and Care Teams - These teams encourage, bless and pray for our partners, their families and their ministries. Through personal and loving care, these teams sustain our partners emotionally, physically, and spiritually on the field and also when they return.
- Pick a UPG and pray for them regularly.
- Commit to pray regularly while choosing a different UPG each day or each week.
- Recruit your small group to regularly pray for UPGs.
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” - Matthew 24:14

Why in the World? Motivation
God’s heart for the lost and His worthiness to receive worship are the motivation for what we do.
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. Matthew 24:14
What in the World? Vision
The Crossroads Global Outreach Ministry exists to make disciples here, near and far away. We teach, mobilize and equip our body here to take the Gospel of the Kindgom to our neighbors near us, and to the world's unreached people groups far away.
Where in the World? Action
Nearly three billion people in 7000 Unreached People Groups (UPGs) have little or no access to the Gospel, to the Bible, or to the Church. Crossroads Global Outreach Ministry intentionally focuses on taking the Good News to them!
The 10/40 Window
Leveling the Field
The Crossroads Global Outreach Ministry is committed to placing a special emphasis on church planting amongst the unreached peoples of the world.
The 10/40 area:
- Contains 95% of the world’s unreached people.
- Is served by less than 5% of the world’s full-time Christian workers.
- Is the region of the world in most desperate need of cross-cultural missions.
- Is home to the majority of the world’s Hindus, Muslims, and Buddhists.
While it is not our intent to neglect the rest of the world, the goals and activities of the Crossroads Global Outreach Ministry reflect a priority for unreached peoples.
Of the 16,713 total people groups worldwide, over 7,066 are unreached, totaling 2.99 billion individuals.
Of these 7,066 groups, 5,924 are in 10/40 Window countries.
That means 84% of all unreached people groups are in the 10/40 Window.
