Get involved with Joshua Project

Joshua Project is a non-profit Christian ministry focused on gathering and distributing information about the world's least-reached ethnic people groups.

All Joshua Project staff raise their own personal support or are self-funded volunteers. We are unable to offer compensation to any volunteers. All these opportunities can be done remotely. We welcome inquiries regarding staff and volunteer opportunities.

People Group Researcher: In-depth, on-site people group research is urgently needed. Understanding a people group's worldview, culture and values is a critical first step in reaching a people group. Ethnographic surveys are needed to gather information, stories and perceptions that illustrate what is important about a culture. The Cultural Study Toolbox has been developed specifically as a guide for this kind of surveying. Helpful resources to get started:

Translator: Help translate Joshua Project resources and materials such as:

  • Country names
  • People group names
  • Prayer cards
  • Profiles of people groups
  • Resources for downloads

"We want to make Joshua Project’s Unreached of the Day materials available in Vietnamese for the benefit of Vietnamese church members who do not have enough fluency in English."

If you can help, please contact us.

Be Radical: Help us translate the existing set of 366 Unreached People of the Day prayer profiles into a new language. Speakers of that language can then get the Unreached of the Day by mobile app or daily email. Please contact us.

Photo Researcher: Pictures of the people groups really help us connect with them in a special way. Help us in our ongoing search for people group photos.

What photos are needed?


Photos ought to be:

  • Close-up quality color images of individuals
  • Representative of the people group and not very young or very old
  • Have permission to use the image is a must

Be Radical: Try to find a photo for all the people groups in one or two countries that are missing one. Or what about doing some traveling to take an original photo of a people group or two?

The Sonar, Hindus in India are an example of a unreached people group.
