Least Reached Counties in the United States 18


Recently I shared about the release of the 2010 U. S. Congregational Membership Report.  I am pleased to know that some folks across the country are shifting through the numbers to guide their strategic planning.  I hope they are planning on sharing their findings with the rest of us.

I want to draw your attention to the U. S. counties that are under 3 percent evangelical.  While I would never attempt to label a county an unreached people group, just remember that many within the missiological community identify a UPG as less than 2 percent evangelical.  You will see several counties below that fall under 2 percent.

Yes, such places do exist in North America.  And within these geographical regions we find ta ethne.

What I have posted below is a table containing some of the findings from the 2010 study.  The county and state name is provided, followed by the number of evangelicals living in the county and their percent of the population in 2010.  You may find the full list HERE.

Will you and your church consider praying, going, and sending missionary teams into these areas of the country to plant churches from the harvest fields?  Will you consider encouraging our brothers and sisters who are laboring in these areas?
