There are still over 900 unreached people groups in Africa, representing millions of African people who have no viable witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The unfinished work of the Great Commission is not only the responsibility of Western mission movements, it is also the responsibility of the African church. While many churches in Africa would be considered well grounded and even thriving, they are disproportionally absent in the work of making disciples “among all nations.” They send relatively few missionaries, and those who are sent are often marginally supported.

The Distant Boat will invite the African church to embrace their unique opportunity in reaching Africa’s unreached peoples. It will challenge the current understanding and attitudes about missions in the African church today, helping it become a major force for missions in the future.

Film media is broadly consumed in Africa, even in rural areas. And media that is locally produced and crafted for an African audience is even more influential. A dramatic film like this one can be an effective method for communicating ideas and changing hearts.
