Video – Lost Versus Unreached
If you run in Christian circles you’ve probably heard people talk about the lost as well as the unreached. These are two common terms Christians may use to describe people who aren’t followers of Jesus. But where do these two terms come from?

What’s the difference between lost and unreached?
In a word: access.
