Dallas-Fort Worth



The Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) metroplex has been the fastest-growing metro area in the United States over the last decade. The immigrant population in DFW has quadrupled during the previous 20 years! There are approximately 420 diaspora people groups in DFW. These immigrants have included large numbers of refugees, some of whom are of unreached people groups. DFW is now a global gateway city—home to twelve significantly unreached people group communities comprising nearly 230,000 people. These communities include many Indian Hindus, Thai Buddhists, Punjabi Sikhs, and Muslims of various ethnicities, including Indo-Pak, Arab, Kurdish, Persian, and Bangladeshi. According to a Pew Research Religious Landscape Study, Dallas-Fort Worth has the highest percentage of Christians (78%) among all major metropolitan areas in the United States. Yet, there is a significant cultural and language gap between local believers and the UPGs in DFW. DFW presents a fantastic opportunity to mobilize and equip thousands to reach the least-reached communities that now call DFW home
