Missions Community Partners to Create New 'Global Status of Evangelical Christianity' Wall Map

Contact: Christopher Deckert, World Missions Atlas Project, 949-842-9617, info@worldmap.org


FORT WORTH, Texas, Sept. 7 /Christian Newswire/ -- In 1996, the missions community collectively produced a status map entitled, "Global Status of Evangelization." This map portrayed the evangelization status of over four thousand languages and their general locations throughout the globe. This map stirred a desire throughout the Christian world to reach out to many people with the Gospel of Christ.


Now, ten years later, the World Missions Atlas Project (www.WorldMAP.org) and its partners in cooperation with the greater missions community have, with expanded and updated data and technology, completed the "Global Status of Evangelical Christianity" wall map. This map illustrates the status of evangelical Christianity and church planting based upon the CPPI (Church Planting Progress Indicators) database maintained by the Global Research Department of the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Included on this map are three inset maps displaying the global status of Bible Translation, global status of JESUS film translation, and global response to the film JESUS.


Highlighted on the map are over 100,000 cities, towns and villages thematically color-coded to depict both their relative size and their evangelical status based upon the primary language and people group living in each location.


This significant presentation of evangelical Christianity will be distributed worldwide, and is prayerfully expected:


  • To provide a fresh new perspective on the mission of the Church in its endeavor to fulfill the Great Commission;
  • To initiate prayer in and for many new areas of the world;
  • To facilitate the desire of ministering both locally and cross culturally;
  • To be presented and studied in thousands of churches, mission organizations, Christian schools, and homes around the world;
  • To spur more research into the location of Churches and their health; and
  • To stir in each individual Christian's heart a desire to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


The "Global Status of Evangelical Christianity" map may be ordered from: www.worldmap.org or www.campuscrusade.com/worldmap at a very discounted price or contact info@worldmap.org.


The World Missions Atlas Project's mission is comprehensive: To create maps of languages and people groups for each country of the world while linking appropriate missions related data. The status of each language and people group is evaluated with regards to the JESUS Film and Bible translation as well as their current level of exposure to the gospel message (also known as the "Status of Evangelization").
