The Adasen, Mabaka, Binongan, Gubang, Masidi-it and Banao tribes are considered to be among the unreached people groups in Northern Philippines. They have a combined population of around 17,000. Tribal Churches are needed to be planted among these groups.
Community development is also needed in many of these tribal areas. Villages, particularly remote ones, don't have adequate health care services. There is also a need for livelihood development. This kind of ministry is a good tool in evangelism.
