Len Bartlotti

Catalyst for Least Reached Peoples


Len’s adult life and ministry have focused on unreached and unengaged people groups, one of the six areas The Cape Town Commitment reaffirmed as ‘strategically important’ for world evangelization.

From 1984 to 1999, together with his family, Len served in a troubled area of Central Asia, where he was involved in a variety of pioneer initiatives among a large Muslim people group. In 2000 he was awarded a PhD and joined the faculty of the Oxford Centre for Mission Studies as research tutor and lecturer in Islamic Studies.

Currently as a scholar activist, Len coordinates the Global Trends Task Force for Vision 5:9 (a collaborative global network of 180 agencies), serves as co-leader of Missio Nexus’ ‘Global Strategies’ track, teaches and coaches field workers in Central Asia and the Middle East, and publishes articles on critical issues related to frontier missiology and unreached peoples.
