Bibles For The World Promotes Day For The Unreached

Day for the Unreached – May 15

Bibles For The World is part of an alliance of globally focused ministries that has designated May 15, 2016, as the International Day for the Unreached, a one-day event intended to inspire and mobilize Christians to reach out to more than 2 billion people around the world who have yet to hear the gospel.

The event, announced during a press conference at the annual National Religious Broadcasters convention February 25 in Nashville, is sponsored by the Alliance for the Unreached, a group that includes Reach Beyond, Bibles For The World, Operation Mobilization, The Seed Company and Missio Nexus.

“We want to remind people that there are literally billions of people around the globe in desperate need of the good news of Jesus, but have never heard His name or story. We’re called to bring it to them,” said Wayne Pederson, Reach Beyond president.

Scores of Christian leaders are urging people to get involved. Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren made a direct appeal to all Christians:

“With more than 2 billion people who haven’t had a chance to meet Jesus, it’s time for the Body of Christ to take a radical stand and say, ‘This has to end in our generation.’ Join me in committing to pray, give, go, and advocate for those who need to know Christ by participating in the International Day for the Unreached.”

The Day for the Unreached will include a variety of efforts to raise awareness.

Many major media networks and stations around the country will promote the event for weeks leading up to May 15. Pastors around the country are urged to preach sermons on the topic, while small groups focus on Jesus’ command to go to the nations. Individuals will also be called to join a 30-day prayer movement, interceding for the salvation of the unreached.

People interested in learning more about the unreached or to get involved can download a free Great Commission Action Guide from the website, DayForTheUnreached.org. An abundance of other resources will soon be available at the site, including bulletin inserts, sermon outlines, promotional posters, web banners, videos and radio spots.

Information is also available on the International Day for the Unreached Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/dayfortheunreached.

Perhaps it’s fitting that The International Day for the Unreached falls on Pentecost Sunday, the day the Holy Spirit came upon the first followers of Jesus, empowering and charging them to share the gospel with people from all over the world.

“Thousands of people heard God’s Word preached in their own language on that day, and more than 3,000 were added to the number of believers, said John L. Pudaite, president of Bibles For The World. “Let’s not forget that the return of Christ is tied to every nation hearing the good news. We’re not saying we can usher in the Second Coming. But we can be a part of a last days move of God that is foretold in scripture. And that’s both a privilege and a profound responsibility.”

International Day of the Bible Impacts Capital

As part of the coalition of ministries that sponsored the International Day of the Bible, Bibles For The World was pleased to note the impact of the celebration of God’s Word across the United States — but particularly in the nation’s Capital!  People gathered to simply read passages from the Bible, beginning in Genesis, to celebrate the Scripture’s power to transform not only individual lives, but also entire cultures.  This brief vide from International Day of the Bible and the National Bible Museum provides a quick overview of the celebration in Washington DC.
