The Bible speaks of our responsibility to know, discover, and being intentional about engaging diaspora peoples residing among us, no matter whether they are immigrants, refugees, or international students.
The foreigner who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the foreigner as yourself.Leviticus 19:34
And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him.Acts 17:26-27
A COLLABORATIVE INITIATIVE of several sending mission agencies to create awareness, discover unreached diaspora peoples, and mobilize churches to engage unreached diaspora peoples in European metro areas.
Use this site to catch a vision for engaging diaspora peoples and to equip yourself and your church to fulfill the Great Commission. The goal is to multiply churches among the unreached diaspora peoples residing in European countries with a specific focus on urban areas.
The heart of PEOPLEGROUPS.eu is the collection of accurate, relevant and strategic information that is shared with evangelicals and other Great Commission Christians. Consider joining us to advocate for the unreached diaspora trusting that, one day, God will gather a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people and language.

God is dispersing people from the most unreached and restricted access countries in the world opening their minds to new ideas, which in turn is opening their hearts to the gospel message. When they receive the gospel message as their own, they are God's natural bridge for bringing the gospel to impact the least reached and most restricted access areas.by Bryan Galloway, IMB Global Research
