CGCS: Stories Trump Statistics (Greg Mathias)

Every Wednesday morning at BtT we highlight the work of the Drummond Center for Great Commission Studies at Southeastern. Recently, Greg Mathias, Associate Director of the CGCS, wrote a blogpost about how the stories of unreached people and missionaries trump statistics about the same. He points to a story about work among the Uighur people of China.

Here’s an excerpt of the post:

Motivation to participate in the Great Commission and reach people needs to go beyond terms and statistics. Every man, woman, and child has a story. Take time this week to learn somebody’s story. Engage people in conversation. If you are interested in unreached, unengaged, and under-engaged peoples around the world, go beyond the statistics and start learning their stories, too.
