This is a very good article on using free Google tools and basic research to uncover people groups who are not being reached with the Gospel.
Of course it takes research and collating the data online and then – of course – USING the data.
In the end, though, unless someone actually presents the Gospel it all is to no avail!
If you are trying to canvas a large area (the author serves in Houston) this may be what you need. If you’re a solo pastor seeking to reach new people with the Gospel, your time may be better spent simply knocking on doors in a neighborhood and visiting it on a regular basis.
