Finishing the Task


UUPG stands for Unengaged, Unreached People Groups. Finishing the Task has created a list of UUPG where churches and Christian organizations can check and choose which people group to adopt and share Jesus Christ to them. Here you can find the list of the world’s unengaged, unreached people groups that have no known full-time workers involved in evangelism and church planting! There are currently 261 Unengaged, Unreached People Groups, over 500 in population and still dwelling in their ancestral homeland, being prioritized for ministry. Our goal is to remove a people group once it is confirmed that a solid church planting strategy, consistent with evangelical faith and practice, is under implementation.

Research is an important part of the work of missions. Understanding the peoples and places among which we are working is key to doing so effectively, and the International Mission Board has a long history of engaging in various types of research and creating useful tools for engaging the nations with the gospel. Through the links below you can find specific parts of that research by way of maps, research reports, and our historical archives.

International Project


"If all of the people groups in the world had an equal distribution of evangelical churches, there would be nearly a thousand churches for each people group. Yet a quarter of the people groups in the world have no church or active missionary presence. These people are Unengaged, Unreached People Groups (UUPG). Though much progress has been made in planting evangelical churches among UPGs, there is still a need to focus on people groups without any access to the gospel."
