Frontier People Groups

The mission of Sound Coffee Company is to raise awareness of specific unreached people groups around the world who have no way to learn of the good news of Jesus.

  • Who Are They?

    The Joshua Project defines Frontier People Groups (FPGs) as:

    • An Unreached People Group (UPG),
    • With virtually no followers (< 0.1% of the population) of Jesus,
    • No known movements to Jesus, and
    • Who still need pioneer Cross-Cultural workers.

    Over 2 billion people, 25% of the world’s population, live in a Frontier People Group

  • Where Are They?

    Check out the map below for a detailed view of the locations of known Frontier People Groups over 1 million in population.

  • Why Does It Matter?

    The vast majority of mission prayer, giving, and labor focuses on strengthening Christians where Christians are already present. Only a tiny fraction of resources goes to Frontier People Groups. 

    A person who lives in a Frontier People Group has almost no chance of hearing the gospel or experiencing the love of Jesus from someone who shares their language or culture, or even from a missionary. 

What Can We Do About It?


Prayer is powerful. Yet, we recognize that prayer can sometimes be intimidating, especially if you don’t know what to pray for.
