Members of a people group share the same ethnic identity. They typically have a common language, a common religion, and a common history. People groups often cross political borders and live in more than one country.
A people group is considered unreached when there is no indigenous community of believing Christians able to engage this people group with church planting. Typically the percentage of Evangelical Christians is less than 2%.
They are unreached for a reason. They are hard to get to geographically and it’s difficult to reach them due to language, different dialects, and often the blending of religion and cultural identity.
