What is Frontier Mission?


Despite the amazing Spirit-led growth of the Church around world over the past century, nearly 2 billion of the 7.6 billion people on the planet remain beyond the reach of the Gospel because they are isolated from a witness to Jesus that they can understand by barriers of culture, language, race and religion.  Missiologists refer to the distinct clusters of people defined by these characteristics as unreached people groups and efforts to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with them as frontier mission.

From TAP’s beginnings, sending Partners to serve unreached people groups has been one of our strategic priorities, as we agree with Paul that, “how can they believe in him of whom they have never heard?  And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach, unless someone is sent (Rom 10:14-15).”
