In these highly unevangelized locations new ministries and new congregations are needed.

For each of the chosen locations identified in the MissionPoint reports, a MissionSite Report has been created.

Worksheets are provided to facilitate developing a missional strategy.
The Missional Zipcode Digest is a custom 2 page report that highlights community types, lifestyle groups, spiritual issues and other information to create awareness, personalize lostness and provide information necessary for missional strategy development and implementation.
