Frequently Asked Questions
A people group is a network of families seeking to preserve their generational identity through intermarriage and maintaining traditions that distinguish them from other people groups.
Frontier People Groups (FPG’s) are people groups where less than one in 1,000 (0.1%) identify with Jesus in any way, and no sustained Jesus movement yet.
Until God answers prayer for a Jesus movement among them, the billions born into FPGs will never
- know a believer,
- be prayed for by name,
- hear the gospel, or
- come to know the Father who longs to embrace and bless them.
Among other unreached people groups (Receptive UPGs), Acts-like Jesus movements have been multiplying exponentially in number and size since the late 1990s. Through the 24:14 Coalition and other initiatives there is increased attention on starting Jesus movements also among Frontier People Groups.
“The 31” are the largest and most influential of all Frontier People Groups, with populations ranging from nearly 10 million to 150 million. Together they contain more than one tenth of world population, and are a central focus of God’s commitment to blessing all of earth’s family lines. As Jesus movements start among these FPGs, many smaller FPGs will become more open to Jesus as well.
Informed, united prayer is the first domino in the chain of releasing God’s blessing in Jesus to multiply through the precious households of these Frontier People Groups.
