The Last Mile – UPG Networking

Welcome! You can get involved by: 1. Promoting or Going / 2. Networking With Others and/or 3. Accessing Vital Information

1. Promoting or Going to your countries UPG’s

The unreached people group catalog for your country is for you to mobilize, go or send to those groups. It is unique to your country, in other words, the groups on your country list are not found on other lists. If you want to add groups you can. It is as simple as that! Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (Matthwe 28:19).

The Last Mile – Unreached People Group Networking section of the Global Great Commission Network is bringing together small people group lists for you to go, promote and/or send to from your country. They are called “Catalogs of Unreached People Groups” and your country has a catalog or will have one soon. This new way of working together has already taken hold in a several countries in the Latin mission movement. With every country doing their part we will bring Christ’s return sooner and avoid duplication as much as possible without the need for secure platforms containing sensitive information. Take your catalog, promote, and go. The catalogs are housed on the Etnopedia to give you access to the latest information.
