People Affinities

“All nations will come and worship before you."

- Revelation 15:4

People Affinities  of North America

Overview of People Affinities

Hover over one of the below People Affinities, then click to learn about that People Affinity.

NOTE: People Affinities, also known as Affinity Blocs, are large groupings of related peoples that share similar origins, languages and cultures. There are hundreds of people groups in a People Affinity. Their origins stretch to almost all nations. Their languages could be “romance” languages like Italian and Spanish — they are similar but not identical. The cultures are unique in each country (Italy and Spain) but they are not as different as Italy and India.

With this in mind, the peoples of the world are divided into eight primary affinity groups with a ninth affinity group uniquely targeting the world’s culturally Deaf people.

Deaf Peoples

Most of the approximately 70 million Deaf people around the world have never seen Jesus's name signed in their language. Often ignored and oppressed, the Deaf are some of the least evangelized people on earth.

People Affinities in North America

NOTE: The total population of each Affinity excludes the Americans, African Americans, and Native American people groups from the American People Affinity. In addition it excludes the Deaf Affinity.
