What if the unreached people groups in our communities helped determine the international locations of some of our future short-term and long-term teams? A brother recently told me about a friendship developed in Birmingham with a man from Nepal. He shared the gospel with this man and their relationship continued […]

Your Bridge to the World may be in Your Backyard


Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers! Before you take off on that long road trip to grandma’s house for the holiday, I want to share some recent resources that may be helpful during the drive. Season two of Strike the Match ended recently. There are now 43 podcast episodes for […]

The North Carolina Baptist Convention is one of a handful of SBC groups (hopefully this number will grow) working hard to educate and mobilize others to reach unengaged and unreached peoples in North America.

The Institute of International Education recently released its annual report on the number of international students in the United States. I have written about their findings over the past few years.

Jeff Sundell has been involved in Great Commission activities for many years. After serving in South Asia and seeing the multiplication of disciples, leaders, and churches, he returned to the United States in 2009, contextualizing what he learned.

Would you lead your church to other countries to pour the overwhelming majority of your evangelistic efforts into serving reached people groups, knowing 6800 unreached people groups […]

Reaching the World’s Most Reached People Groups



Kingdom stewardship is not only related to the use of finances. It is related to everything we have received from the King (e.g., time, passions, gifts, opportunities, power, wealth). Will we bury what has been provided, or will we put it to use in a manner reflective of Kingdom wisdom? […]

Strategic Stewardship and Missions in the West


The day has finally arrived. This is the last post before I sign-off of the blog for several weeks. I set as my goal to write five posts per week in 2015. I was able to accomplish this, except for two days when my host’s server was down. It was a fun 2015. Thank […]
