HighRise Ministries is focused up raising up HighCaliber disciples in unreached cities. Specifically we are focused on reaching the lost in major cities throughout the 10/40 window. The 10/40 Window is located 10 degrees to 40 degrees north of the equator, spanning the globe from West Africa to East Asia. Here are some facts and reasons why we are focused on this area of the world:
- There are 62 nations within the 10/40 Window.
- 4.1 billion of the world’s 5.6 billion people live here.
- It is home to 85% of the world’s poor population.
- It is the headquarters of Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Atheism.
- 97% of the un-reached people groups are located here.
- It contains over 70% of the world’s people but only 8% of the church’s missionary efforts.
- Less than 1/2 of 1% of the mission budget of churches goes to reach the 10/40 Window.
- Many in the 10/40 Window have never heard the Name of Jesus – even one time! (http://www.wfwradio.com/the-10-40-window/)
