Unreached People Groups are important to us at Emmanuel.  We advance God’s story in our world by supporting evangelism, Bible studies, church planting, and community development in areas where the life-changing news of Jesus has little to no voice.  There are three specific areas of mission that we believe God desires us to focus on as a church: India, The MENA region, and Quebec.

In India there are 2,376 people groups. Of those people groups, 2,139 (90%) are unreached. This means that over 1,326,545,000 people in India have never heard the good news of Jesus.
