Maybe you and your church have started to pray for the Yadav or an other specific people group, but you are wondering how to put feet to these prayers?

What is a Strategy Coordinator (SC)?
A Strategy Coordinator is a full-time (or part-time) missionary that develops and implements a comprehensive strategy for mobilizing as many Christian resources as possible for the evangelization and discipleship of an unreached people group, state, city, town, village or language group.
They do the following:
- Serve as a catalyst for church planting among an unreached people group
- Act as a liaison
- Facilitate the evangelization and discipleship of an entire people group, state, city or language group..
Why Strategy Coordinators?
– They exist to overcome typical barriers to evangelizing unreached people groups such as:
- Spiritual warfare: Most unreached people groups reside in the 10/40 window, where all major world religions were founded.
- Visa restrictions: Many countries are closed to traditional missionaries
- Ignorance: Because there is no church among these people groups, there is no one to advocate on their behalf. As a result, most of these groups are unknown to Christians around the world.
– They direct evangelism resources to where they are most needed. All too often, ministries focus on the people groups that are well-known and easy to access.
- Many people groups have no gospel witness at all–no Scripture, no disciples, and no churches. While other peoples, like many in the West, have an over-abundance of these things.
- Less than 1.2% of all foreign missions money goes to these least evangelized peoples, whereas 87.2% goes to the countries that have the largest percentage of Christians and churches.
– They develop a comprehensive strategy for evangelizing a particular people group. Recognizing that people are made up of body, mind and spirit, they develop a holistic approach geared towards the transformation of individuals and their societies. They do this by initiating ministries that are focused on meeting peoples' physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
– They act as catalysts that can help speed up the evangelization of an unreached people. Because they are able to work simultaneously on multiple evangelism strategies designed to reach every level of a society, they are able mobilize a thousand people to do the work, rather than to do the work of one thousand people themselves.
What does a SC do?
- A SC's ministry is not limited by visa requirements or by security restrictions. If unable to live among the people they have chosen, they live in a city somewhere in the world where there is a free flow of information and international communication capabilities.
- They focus on developing evangelization strategies in the areas of prayer, media, literature, direct evangelism, and indirect evangelism (i.e. sports, tentmaking, business, education, cultural exchanges and medicine).
- Research all aspects (social, religious, cultural, economic, political) of an unreached people group. By so doing, they are able to determine felt needs and opportunities for presenting the Gospel.
- Research available resources in the world Christian community.
- Develop a long-term comprehensive plan for seeing the evangelization and discipling of an unreached people group.
- Design evangelization strategies, linking worldwide Christian resources (churches individuals, mission agencies, tentmakers, business people, teachers and other professionals, etc.) to an unreached people group, which are culturally appropriate and responsive to felt needs.
- Analyze the big picture, locate the gaps and help to avoid duplication of efforts among an unreached people in order to ensure the effectiveness of all evangelism efforts.
- Network with various Christian organizations and churches for implementation of strategies.
- Facilitate the development of partnerships between the various churches and mission agencies working among an unreached people group.
- Serve as a spokesperson and advocate on behalf of the unreached people group.
- Mobilize multiple types of outreach. These may include intercessors, Christian radio broadcasts, social services, health care, education, relief and development, business, sports ministries and education.
- Continually evaluate the status of evangelization and discipleship among the unreached people group and adjust strategies accordingly.
- Work on strategies until the people group is sufficiently evangelized.
