All of our lives we’ve heard of the Second Coming… that we’ll soon see Jesus in clouds of glory. Yet here we are. Why hasn’t Jesus come?
Could it be that Jesus has asked us to do a task that remains undone–a task so important His return hinges on its completion?
The world population exceeds 7 billion. An estimated 2.84 billion haven’t heard of Jesus. The end will come after the gospel has been preached in ALL the world (Matthew 24:14).
Of the 2.84 billion people who haven’t heard about Jesus, 97% live in the 10/40 Window. This area must be reached with the gospel.

Reaching groups typically resistant to the gospel
by Marty Phillips
President, nPraxis International
Founded as a supportive ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, nPraxis partners with Gospel Outreach in reaching people groups that traditionally have been resistant to the gospel. As partners, we have witnessed an abundant outpouring of God’s spirit.
For example, in the last 15 years we have seen more Muslims come to faith than in the past 1,500 years. In the last five years, we have seen unprecedented numbers of high-caste Hindus also come to faith. Furthermore, we are also starting to see this same trend among several other traditionally resistant people groups.
In recent years, nPraxis has partnered with Gospel Outreach and organized a network of ministries across nearly 30 countries, providing training, strategic planning, capacity building, as well as developing a legal and financial base. Leaders in nPraxis specialize in fostering culturally sensitive discipleship movements, mainly among previously unreached people groups.
We assist ministries within the 10/40 Window to develop a nonhierarchical organizational structure with a focus on the training of trainers.
Our goal is to do this by promoting a New Testament model of house churches that are culturally sensitive and relevant. We assist ministries within the 10/40 Window to develop a nonhierarchical organizational structure with a focus on the training of trainers.
This emphasis helps explain the rapid growth of the greater nPraxis network—one that already has about 25,000 house churches with close to 300,000 believers. This movement is supported by approximately 300 trainers, supervisors, and national leaders across the network. The ministry model is designed for easy, low-cost expansion, while at the same time retaining structural unity.
Please pray for nPraxis and the many workers who are spreading the gospel in unreached areas of the world.
