Ralph Winter

Ralph Winter, the founder of William Carrey University, passed away two days ago. He had a great impact on the modern evangelical strategies for missions. His emphasis on Unreached People Groups has motivated thousands of missionaries and churches to actively pursue those who have never heard the gospel. It’s application has been varied and sometimes misguided but the shift of focus has been instrumental in that millions of the farthest from the kingdom having been preached too and saved. A few years ago I was sitting in Chile with my friend Jason Holt just killing time reading a book called “Perspectives”. My heart broke for those farthest from the gospel. That book started my family on a journey to come to North Africa where we are currently laboring. Wether you agree with him or not, his love for Christ and the lost ought to be imitated.
