First Peoples Initiative

North America & Canada
ID: 229759

An initiative to reach the least-reached First Peoples in North America.

Story

The First Peoples Initiative focuses on creating gospel movements among First Peoples throughout all of North America. Approximately 2.5 million First Peoples live in the United States, and approximately 2 million tribal people live in Canada. The majority of enrolled tribal members in the United States live off of Indian reservations, with a large number living in metropolitan or urban contexts. First Nations people in Canada also live both on reserves and in a variety of contexts off reserves.

Many tribal people in the United States and Canada view Jesus as the “white man’s God” and have a distorted image of Jesus. They have yet to recognize that, like them, he came from a tribe ― the tribe of Judah. First Peoples Initiative leaders are passionate about seeing Indigenous people in North America reached for Jesus.
