USA Vision: 50-5-50

Brutal facts on the United States:
  • 50% of Americans are “churchless” or “unchurched” (156 million) (cite)
  • 34% of unchurched population claim to be skeptics (atheists or agnostics) (cite)
  • 22.8% of Americans claim their religious affilation to be “none” or “nothing in particular” (cite)
  • 3 million: population of Muslims in America, expected to reach 6.2 million by 2030 (cite)
  • “Twenty years ago, two-thirds of churchless Americans (65%) were open to being invited to church by a friend. Today, that percentage has slipped to less than half (47%).” (cite)

Percent of believers engaged in sharing Jesus:

  • “Statisticians estimate that only three percent of evangelicals participate in evangelism. That means ninety seven percent of born-again believers are sitting on the sidelines. Only a small fraction of the church carries out the Savior’s command to seek and save those who are lost. The command is clear in Scripture, yet it stands unfulfilled. Something is terribly wrong! – [Howard A. Tryon, Praying for You: A Workbook for Reaching Others Through Prayer (Grand Rapids: Kregel Resources, 1996), 34.]
  • “Several experts suggest that ninety five to ninety seven percent of American Christians do not share their faith with others.” – [Will McRaney Jr., The Art of Personal Evangelism: Sharing Jesus in a Changing Culture (Nashville: Broadman and Holman Publishers, 2003), 5.]
  • “Ninety five percent of all Christians in North America will not win even one person to Christ in their entire lifetime.” – [Aubrey Malphurs, Planting Growing Churches for the 21st Century (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 1998), 218.]
  • “Over ninety percent of evangelical Christians have never purposefully led even one person to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.” – [Walter S, Bleecker with Jan Bishop, The Non-Confronter’s Guide to Leading a Person to Christ (San Bernardino, CA: Here’s Life Publishers, 1990), 15.]

#NoPlaceLeft USA: We are laboring to carry out the 50-5-50 Vision (50 US cities in 5 years) in the USA.  We are part of a US-based team of 4 Fields Trainers led by Jeff Sundell known as the #NoPlaceLeft Coalition.

50-5-50 Vision by Jeff Sundell  | 50 cities in 5 years to raise up 50 4G trainers: God continues to clarify the vision for our family.  Our nation is changing, and in the next 10 years, 50 cities will be majority-minority.  What does majority-minority mean?  In 50 major and mid-size cities, populations will be non-Anglo, non-African American, consisting of Asian immigrants, African immigrants, Middle Easterners, and those from the Latino world. What a change in a generation! God has brought Acts 1:8 to our doorstep.  No longer are the ends of the earth thousands of miles away; they may now be our next-door neighbor.  So, God has given us a vision to train people with some simple Gospeling and discipling tools that, if mixed with some loud loving, will have a huge impact on our nation.  Pray for 50-5-50!  Pray Luke 10:2, as well; we need more laborers.  Click here to learn more about #NoPlaceLeft, vision, calendar and other information on the #NoPlaceLeft Vision.
