South-Asia Church Planter Training Fund
As a Church Planting and Leadership training ministry Engage has sought to engage in God’s global purpose in many locations around the world. For the last 10 years we have particularly focused on South Asia. We are focusing our efforts there because of the 1,809,312.000, people who live in South Asia and 95.3% of them are still unreached. Globally there are approximately 3,226,638,000 people whom are unreached – 53.4% of those unreached people live in South Asia.
In a comparison to the second most unreached region by population – South East Asia, which has 330,894,000 unreached people, South Asia has a far greater need than anywhere else with 1,724,807.000 unreached people – Five times the amount In terms of unreached people groups, South Asia has 3,677 distinct unreached peoples, in comparison to the next closest region South East Asia again, which has 710. Moreover, of all the regions of the world South Asia has the lowest percentage of Chrisitan adherents with only 1.8%. What does this look like in terms of labourers? Joshua Project estimates that there are approximately 36,372 frontline workers needed in South Asia, in comparison to South East Asia that needs an estimated 6,998 workers, that is almost 6 times the amount. So what does this mean ? It means that statistically South Asia is the region of the world that needs missionaries more than any other region. Our methodology to fill this need for labourers is to train local indigenous leaders in the Bible and church planting with the goal of multiplying workers through discipleship and the extension of the local church into every unreached area of the region. We have already trained over 80 students and currently have twenty four church planters who have all completed our two year training program and have planted over 20 churches, but we are looking to expand our training programs at the request of local leaders in many different locations.
