Studies show that in the United States of America there are 5,110 “Christian Workers” per 1 million people. A Christian Worker is someone whose full time occupation is to, in the name of Christ, serve others and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Under this category are people like pastors, missionaries, youth pastors, etc.

Each Christian Worker in the United States of America would have to reach around 200 people for all of America to come to Christ. Other statistics show that nearly one third of the American population would consider themselves “Great Commission Christians”, a Great Commission Christian is someone who believes in Christ, follows Him, and has accepted the command of the preaching the gospel to all creation and discipling nations (Matthew 28:16-20 & Luke 24:44-52).

If each one of these believers reached 2 other people, all of America would be saved. The statistics go on to point out that over 95% of the population in America has heard a clear witness of the gospel of Jesus and have either chosen to accept or reject it. (See 4kworldmap.com for all statistics and further research).

Not all countries are so saturated with workers, believers, or have accessibility to the Gospel. Here is a short list, in no particular order, of various nations:

Oswald J. Smith once said, “No one has the right to hear the gospel twice, while there remains someone who has not heard it once.”

There are fields without any workers. There are villages where the name of Jesus has never been heard. Where is God calling you?
