Are Missionaries Still Needed?


If the church worldwide sent one missionary to each group of 5000 of the two billion, there would be the need for 400,000 (four-hundred thousand) additional missionaries today! It is estimated that there are 285 million evangelicals worldwide. If we just take the 285 million evangelicals, 400,000 is about 1.4 missionaries per every 1000 evangelicals worldwide.
