An Unreached People Group (UPG) is defined by the Joshua project as "a people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group without outside assistance". Reaching UPGs requires unique strategies, resources, and, most of all, willing workers to go out to some of the most remote places in the world.
