Empowering Tribals to Reach Tribals

Mobilize and equip tribal churches to send out missionaries to plant churches among unreached tribal groups in Southeast Asia.

Globalization is at the heart of IMB strategy, encouraging and equipping partners worldwide to send their own missionaries to the unreached. This globalization strategy is making great strides in the Philippines. Your gift will help IMB personnel and “B” tribal missionaries equip other tribal churches to reach some of the last remaining UPGs in Southeast Asia!

Once fierce headhunters, outsiders had never survived contact with the “B” tribe. But God worked in miraculous ways among them. Missionaries shared the gospel with them; it penetrated the darkness, and the “B” tribal church was born. Years later, IMB missionaries mobilized the “B” tribal church to send their own missionaries to other unreached tribal groups. These 21 tribal missionaries have proved incredibly effective, connecting at a deep, heart level with unreached tribes. As their sending churches caught a vision for the Great Commission, “B” churches were revived and multiplied. Your gift will enable IMB workers to continue mobilizing and equipping “B” tribal churches and the missionaries they send and will also provide audio Bibles for them to use in reaching oral peoples.

Your partnership will replicate this powerful paradigm with other tribal groups — tribals reaching tribals! This model is the essence of globalization: formerly unreached peoples taking the gospel to those who are still unreached.

From Headhunters to Missionary Evangelists

Once fierce headhunters who allowed no outsiders to survive contact with them, the B tribe followed Christ through the witness of Western missionaries. Since that time, the B-tribe church has grown and strengthened. Now, they have a vision for reaching other tribals in their region with the gospel as part of their role in God’s Great Commission.

Location

Asian Pacific Rim Peoples

From the skyscrapers of Hong Kong and vast plains of Mongolia to smoky rainforests hiding winding rivers edged by golden sands, the natural beauty and long history of these Asia-Pacific Rim countries testify to God’s creative hand. This vast region houses four of the most populous global cities, as well as the country with the world's largest nominal population of Muslims.

Spirituality swirls through cities and countryside like the smoke from temple incense sticks. Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, animists, Daoists and ancestor worshipers live here, comprising 851 unreached people groups who have never heard that freedom is found in Christ. Pray for divine appointments for Christian workers to share that Jesus is the way to peace with God and eternal life. Ask God to glorify His name among the peoples of the Asian Pacific Rim Peoples affinity.
