By: David J. Swandt, Founder and President - Twenty20 Faith
This past year, world population has soared to an estimated 7.87 Billion people, and according to both the Barna Group and the Joshua Project, approximately 3.3 Billion of them remain largely unreached by the message of Christ.
But this is changing . . .
At least 51% of those 3.3 Billion unreached people through 2021 use a smartphone in their daily life, and with only limited exception, have access to the YouVersion Bible App (of which Twenty20 Faith is a content partner) in their language.
And even more striking is that over the next 5 years, the growth of the number of people using smartphones will substantially outpace population growth. By 2027, world population is estimated to be 8.33 Billion, and 92.3% (7.69 Billion) of them will be regular smartphone users.
That means by 2027 at least 82% of unreached people will be engage-able through mobile technology - making this generation "The Most Reachable" in human history. And while reaching the unreached remains a complex endeavor even with technology, Twenty20 Faith is strategically positioned to continue playing a key role in God's unfolding plan to do so.
"Again Jesus said, 'Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.'"
We are so grateful and honored by all who have partnered with us in God's work to reach the lost.
THANK YOU for all you do.
