Christian Evangelism
Where the Need is Greatest in the World

Though the “Christian World” has only 11% of the world’s non-Christians, it’s where we have 76% of the world’s full-time church workers, 73% of foreign missionaries and where we spend 87% of mission dollars.  By contrast, the “Evangelized Non-Christian World” has 57% of the world’s non-Christians but only 24% of the world’s full-time church workers, 25% of foreign missionaries and 12% of mission dollars.  The “Un-evangelized World” has 32% of the world’s non-Christians but only .4% of the full-time church workers, 2% of foreign missionaries and 4% of mission dollars.  Though mission personnel and dollars are most needed where the gospel is most rare, currently the appropriation is primarily to those lands that have the most Christians.

Two things are noteworthy when viewing the distribution of foreign missionaries and full-time Christian workers (above) and the percentage of Christians (below): Though fewer than a third of people are identified as “Christian,” and we have been commissioned by Christ to “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:18-20), the huge proportion of foreign missionaries and full-time Christian workers are in those places where Christianity has already been most firmly established, while the “un-evangelized world” has fewer than 1% of missionaries and fewer than 2% of church workers.  The annual cost of home Christianity in the Christian world is $163 billion dollars.
