A Third of Us

Gateway to the Unreached is here to equip you to become involved in the movement of the unreached. 2 billion people around the world have never had the opportunity to hear about Jesus. Matthew 28 tells us that we are to go into all the world and make disciples. This is too big of a task to do alone! It takes the whole body of Christ. Greg Kelly host of Gateway to the Unreached and CEO of World Mission will inspire you every week to reach out and share the Good News. Greg Kelly is also a member of the Alliance for the Unreached, which is made up of 16 ministries all passionate about reaching the unreached. Every week you will hear from one of them.
