Recently, a group of Southeasterners traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah for a mission trip among the majority Mormon population. Southeastern student and E-Marketing Specialist, Sam Morris wrote about their experience. He offers some insight on the hard truth about Salt Lake City and ways we can pray for them, and especially the evangelicals working among them.
Salt Lake City is the most unreached city in America with 98% of its inhabitants living without the understanding that Jesus Christ is both fully God and fully man. He is Lord and Savior. Let’s break that number down just a bit: 70% of the population would consider themselves Mormon while another 28% have no religious affiliation. With more than 2.6 million people, there is one Southern Baptist church for every 43,000 people.
And that’s in the middle of America.
