||PeopleGroups.info is a powerful new site launched by the North American Mission Board and
International Mission Board in conjunction with the Ethnic America Network.
The site offers a free database of North American People Groups, including Census 2000 information for country of birth,
ancestry, and language by zip codes, counties, cities, and states. Eventually it is hoped that people group
workers and researchers across North America will contribute people group
observations in their local area.
If you teach children and want to help them learn English, Spanish or other languages, you'll be interested in our page of Children's Language Resources.

We've added a new article, Guidelines for Ethical Standards in Cross-Cultural Ministry Contexts by Paul Grant. Reprinted with permission from John Mark Ministries (http://jmm.aaa.net.au).
