Where we are
Where we’re going…to the unsent
The CMM is collaborating with Christian researchers to create the Unsent Peoples Index (or Mobilization Index). The purpose of our research is to understand which countries have the most potential to become great senders of missionaries to the unreached. We evaluate a country’s sending potential based on the number of evangelicals, their proximity to unreached people groups, and their economic ability to send missionaries beyond their borders.
Help us unleash the powerful potential of the unsent. With 80% of the global church in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, the mission sending potential of these populations is immense.
Ten countries with the largest evangelical populations

Statistics from Operation World 2010 ed
*Evangelicals as defined by Operation World 2010 ed.
**# of cross-cultural missionaries sent outside of one’s native country. Several of these nations are sending large numbers of missionaries within their own country. While this is good, we also must realize that much mobilization needs to be done in focusing those efforts on the unreached peoples within their countries. Research by Todd Johnson, author of Atlas of Global Christianity, has shown that 7.5% of the world’s missionaries are sent to the least-evangelized peoples, and national missionaries sending within their home country have the same low percentage of 7.5% that are sent to the least-evangelized peoples.
