Frontier Peoples: 500,000 and above Overview

A Frontier People Group (FPG) is an Unreached People Group (UPG) with virtually no followers of Jesus and no known movements, still needing pioneer cross-cultural workers. Joshua Project approximates FPGs as 0.1% or fewer Christian Adherents and no confirmed, sustained movements to Jesus.
