The Int’l Society for
Frontier Missiology 2013 Conference
Global Peoples: Gates, Bridges and
across the Frontiers
September 18–19, 2013
diaspora of unreached peoples is a strategic
mechanism for mission in our day. It is God who
determines the boundaries and places of peoples
across the remaining frontiers (Acts 17:26), and
he opens opportunities for fresh new access,
deployment and method. ISFM 2013 will explore the
actual and potential connections across these
global ethnoscapes, the bridges between homelands
and diaspora populations, and the strategic
gateways in our own American context.
will address: (1) how we can bridge into the centers
of influence across global peoples; (2) the necessity
of adapting our present training models; (3) the
growing concentration and opportunities among the
diaspora of unengaged peoples within our American
context; and (4) the discipling of movements across
the major clusters of unengaged global peoples.
Special focus will be given to the South Asian
