In these end times, God is moving greatly out side the church structure. There are some organizations like the the FULL GOSPEL BUSINESS MEN'S FELLOWSHIP INTERNATIONAL, THE GIDEONS, THE BIBLE SOCIETY, HAGGAI INSTITUTE etc which God is using greatly to draw men into the the Kingdom. 

Some of these Para Church organizations are helping to reach men for God that the Church will not ordinarily reach. 

Some were formed as direct visions from God with specific mandates. The FULL GOSPEL for instance uses spoken and written testimonies of encounters with God to bring people to Christ while the Gideon's distributes the word of God with testimonies also. 

One unique thing about some of these groups is that they operate in the market place or along every traffic lane of life where the church does not go. 

God is infact using several means to reach the UNREACHED through several of these types of groups outside the church setting. 

They are not mentioned in the bible but are Divinely engaged to serve God.
