What are we building?

How we define “unreached” in missions determines:

  1. Where we go.

  2. How long we stay.

  3. What activities we engage in while there.


A reached place is where there is lasting access to the gospel. Access is meaningful and lasting when it includes short-term and long-term investment in developing structures we see in the Bible like healthy local churches, pastoral training, gospel explainers in the local language, translations of Scripture, etc. At 8K Research, we are tracking the status of these important gospel structures in various locations around the world.
