ABOUT THE THIRTY-ONE
What are Frontier people groups?
Unreached People Groups in which
1) Less than 1 in 1,000 identify with Jesus in any way, and 2) no established Jesus movement is yet multiplying God’s blessing in their midst.
Who Are the 31?
The 31 are the largest and most influential Frontier People Groups, each with population ranging from nearly 10 million up to 150 million. One tenth of mankind—half the population of all FPGs, live in "the 31".
Why pray for the 31?
United, informed prayer releases God’s blessing in Jesus to spread rapidly among whole people groups. As these largest FPGs experience God’s blessing, many nearby groups will also be impacted.

This six minute video overview provides essential background for prayer, partnerships, and strategy.
From one person God made all peoples … . He decided when and where every nation would be … so they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him …. (Acts 17:26–27)
We pray... because God answers prayer!
Throughout history, the effectiveness of mission efforts has been tied directly to informed prayer. And as prayer for Unreached People Groups (UPGs) has increased since the late 1970’s, so have Jesus movements among UPGs. Today researchers are tracking 70 million new disciples in more than 700 Acts-like Jesus movements…
As Jesus had directed them, the first 120 disciples sought God together daily for the promised Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit then emboldened and empowered their witness, in fulfillment of Jesus’ commission—to disciple all nations in loving obedience to all He commanded…
Throughout the book of Acts, God’s Word multiplied rapidly through believing families and households—even without personal Bibles, church buildings or salaried preachers.
“And the word of God continued to increase, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly …”
I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me because of their message. I pray they may all be one. (Jn 17:20-21)
When prayer network leaders learned that half the population of all Frontier People Groups,
live in just the largest 31 groups, they sensed the Lord saying:
