Are you familiar with the Great Commission? Barna Research Group recently found that 51 percent of all churchgoers were unfamiliar with the term. Only 17 percent know that it is associated with Matthew 28:18-20 where Jesus says:

All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age, (ESV).

If the church, in general, is unfamiliar┬áwith the “Great Commission” how are they doing at carrying it out, especially among the unreached?

Our host, Shane Vander Hart, for this episode of The Caffeinated Thoughts Podcast talks with Larry Andrews, the President and CEO of Partners International, about the church’s calling to reach those who are unreached, as well as, the upcoming International Day for the Unreached on May 20th.
