Valley is also involved with partners in places referred to as Creative Access or Restricted Access Countries. We recognize the least reached and unreached people groups matter to God.

Photos and full names of partners are not displayed because they serve in areas where their identity is protected due to the political climate of the regions.

Creative access and restricted access countries are those places where political restrictions and other obstacles prevent open proclamation of the gospel.

 

The “least-reached” are those who have at least a small number of believers in their community. The “unreached people groups” are those who have little to no believers among their community or even country, and where sharing the Good News of Jesus could potentially involve persecution, expulsion from the country or even death. Increasingly, Valley is prioritizing creative access countries and unreached people groups, which means we may see fewer pictures and locations published due to safety concerns. If you desire to know of these individuals, and how to pray for them, please contact valleyglobal@valley.church

(The rulers, elders and teachers of the law) called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.
