About Ethnos Canada
A thriving church for every people.
Of the world’s 6,900 language groups, 2,500 are still unreached
Ethnos Canada, founded in 1942 as New Tribes Mission, helps local churches mobilize, equip and coordinate missionaries to these peoples. How can we hope to tackle such a daunting task? By the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, and by focusing our efforts primarily in these five realms.
Reaching Unreached People Groups
2,500 people groups are still waiting to hear the gospel in their heart language. From the beginning, our vision has been to take the gospel to these people groups. Truly this is a vision that demands our passion and it remains unchanged!
Chronological Bible Teaching
Our chronological Bible teaching method systematically tells the story of the Bible so that the truths of the Old Testament provide the foundation for understanding and responding to the truth of the gospel.
The Bible is powerfully changing lives as the unfolding story of God’s provision of salvation for all the ethnos continues to be told!
Translating God’s Word
There are still hundreds of languages waiting for God’s Word to be translated into their own tongue. Our goal is to put the Word of God into the hands of the people groups with whom we work!
Our missionaries are equipped to not only learn an unwritten language, but to oversee the translation work and literacy training necessary so that all the ethnos can one day hear God speaking to them through His Word.
Training National Co-Workers
With billions of people still waiting to hear the gospel, the task is bigger than just us. We rejoice that God is calling out workers from the ethnos to go. These national missionaries are already committed to minister, and we continue to equip and work alongside them.
Establishing Thriving Churches
Disciples and thriving churches go hand-in-hand. Following the pattern seen in Acts as God’s people carried out the Great Commission, we seek to establish mature churches that can take their rightful place as agents of change in their own communities and partners in the Great Commission.
