Joshua Project data shows 4,980 Frontier People Groups with total population 2,032,323,000. One fourth of the world lives in these FPGs and have almost no chance of hearing about Jesus from someone in their own people group. About HALF the population of all FPGs live in just 38 groups, each over ten million in population.How neglected are Frontier People Groups?
The vast majority of mission prayer, giving and laborers focuses on strengthening Christians where Christians are already present. Only a very small portion of mission prayer and resources go to Unreached People Groups (UPGs) at all, and only a tiny fraction of this goes to Frontier Unreached People Groups (FPGs). Very few mission agencies and churches send even 1% of their missionaries to Frontier Peoples.
