Meanwhile, most missionaries continue to go to mostly Christian nations. “The ‘top nine’ receiving countries were home to only 3.5% of the world’s non-Christians but received more than 34% of all international missionaries,” notes the CSGC. “All nine have Christian majorities, and they were home to over 34% of the world’s Christians in 2010.”
By contrast, “The ten countries with the most non-Christians in 2010 were home to 73% of all non-Christians globally. Because many of them restrict or deny missionary access, however, they received only 9% of all international missionaries,” notes the CSGC. The lion’s share are in China, India, and Nigiera, where “large numbers of home missionaries also work among non-Christians.”
The country that received the most missionaries in 2010? The United States, with 32,400 sent from other nations.
