What is the 10/40 Window?

I hope that the “10/40 Window” becomes a well-known term and well-prayed place for in our WBC family.  Not just during our mission conference but from here on out, until the gospel is proclaimed to the ends of the earth! Here are a few basics to help.

What is the 10/40 Window?

“10/40 is missions shorthand for the most populous and least-reached region of the world. The 10/40 Window is 10° north latitude to 40° north latitude. It contains two-thirds of the world’s people along with the superlatives of despair — worst poverty, shortest lifespan, greatest persecution, least access to the Gospel.”–from Frontline Mission

How Many?!?!

“An estimated 2.79 billion individuals live in approximately 5,876 unreached people groups are in the 10/40 Window. The 10/40 Window also contains the largest unreached peoples over one million. In addition, the 10/40 Window contains the overwhelming majority of the world’s least evangelized megacities — that is those with a population of more than one million. The top 50 least evangelized megacities are all in the 10/40 Window! That fact alone underscores the need for prioritizing 10/40 Window Great Commission efforts.”–from The Joshua Project

What Can I Do?

For starters, you can come to the WBC Mission Conference May 5-6! We are going to learn more and pray more and plan more for how God will use us to reach the unreached together.

You can also take some time to explore these great resources…
