The new IMB president, Dr. Tom Elliff laid out a vision to engage all 3,800 remaining UUPGs in the world.
Dr. Tom Elliff said,
Right now, 3,800 of those people groups are unengaged. To our knowledge, no one has “taken them on” adopting them as their burden. One thing is certain; they will never be reached until they are first engaged.
Remarkably, our staff has carefully developed all the pieces needed to fully engage these 3,800 people groups. While “some assembly is required,” they are both able and committed to doing all that is necessary to mobilize our SBC churches in a fashion never before thought possible.
By God’s grace, and with your prayers, and with the heart commitment of Southern Baptists everywhere, I want to introduce at this 2011 meeting of the SBC a simple plan by which each one of these 3,800 unengaged people groups can be embraced by a Southern Baptist congregation, adopted, taken into heart, prayed over, studied and strategized over with the full intent of ultimately engaging them.
What’s more, I believe we can accomplish this within one year. Think of it! Should Jesus grant us the days, by the 2012 meeting of the SBC, Southern Baptists will be able to say that to our knowledge a commitment has been made. And steps have been taken – for each of these people groups by at least one church – to see a Gospel witness among every unengaged people on this planet!
It is by God’s grace that we have approximately 5,000 missionaries around the world. These are your boots on the ground. But in the end, the fulfillment of the Great Commission will require local churches, your church, becoming burdened for the unengaged and unreached of this world, signing on, and creating vibrant partnerships. This is not a new way of doing missions, it is the biblical way, and your missionaries are eager for you to awaken to this reality and join them.
Thank you for praying for our family and the Unreached Unengaged people in Central India.
