About Finishing the Task

Finishing the Task exists to convene and to catalyze the global body of Christ towards the goal of ensuring that everyone, everywhere has access to a Bible, Believer and Body of Christ.

This movement began in the year 2000 with the goal of synthesizing data towards tracking and engaging the unengaged, unreached people groups (UUPGs) of the world. Now, with the 2000th anniversary of the Great Commission – Jesus’s call to make disciples of all nations – in sight in AD 2033, Finishing the Task is rallying churches and organizations to collaborate in new ways and work together towards broader cooperative goals in Bible translation and engagement, evangelization and witness empowerment, and church planting.

Our Vision & Mission

To see every people group in the world engaged with an indigenously led church planting movement.

To form a global network of local churches, denominations, church planters, and mission agencies that are willing to work together in partnership to see church planting initiatives launched among these 284 Unengaged, Unreached People Groups (UUPGs).

About Finishing the Task

Finishing the Task is a global network of local churches, denominations, church planters, and mission agencies working together in partnership to see church planting initiatives launched among the remaining Unengaged, Unreached People Groups (UUPGs).

Unreached people groups are those where a church planting movement does not exist because there is no indigenous church capable of reaching the group without cross-cultural missionary assistance. They are the areas of the world where the light of Jesus has yet to permeate, where millions of people will live without the hope of Jesus and die separated from Him for eternity, unless something is done.

Finishing the Task brings together a network over 1,660 local churches, denominations and organizations with a burden for the lost so that together, through knowledge sharing, partnership, and mutual encouragement, we can work faster and more efficiently to fulfill Jesus’ call to go and make disciples of all the nations.

Our generation can be the generation that truly reaches the world with the Gospel, working together towards the goal of seeing people of “every nation, tribe, people and language” worshiping Jesus together in heaven (Rev. 7:9).
