The Middle East and ABWE Canada
In the birthplace of the world’s three monotheistic faiths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, Christianity makes up the smallest group, representing only about two percent of the population in parts of this region. In some countries, nearly 100 percent of the population claim to be Muslim. A growing number of immigrants and refugees make up a considerable part of the population. Recent revolutions and continued political struggles have led to open doors and opportunities to serve. Many are searching for what will bring them peace, hope, and truth. God sees their searching hearts and is revealing Himself in miraculous ways.
Countries in this area of the world desperately need Christians to come and live life among them to demonstrate the greatness of our God. The vast majority of Muslims here are under an incredible misunderstanding of Christianity. Most never have an opportunity to hear the truth. Many have lived in poverty and broken relationships for centuries.
In this creative access region, we seek to practically demonstrate the love of Christ by meeting spiritual and physical needs through local church ministries, medical care, education, teaching English, and small businesses. We see God working through personal relationships, hospitality, and a variety of services that demonstrate to people and their communities a “practical Jesus.”
There is an ever-growing population of refugees in this region. They are struggling to survive. Through strategic partnerships, we are helping to provide such basic needs as food, heat, mattresses, and blankets while also offering literature that will address their deepest heart needs.
Ministries in this region include:
- Visionary Leadership
- Local Church Ministries
- Crisis Response Leadership
- Strategic Partnerships and Networking
- Teaching English (ESL)
- Christian School Education
- Business Entrepreneur
- Resource Translation
We need willing followers of Jesus to return to the birthplace of Christianity and demonstrate what it means to serve the God who is love. Will you join us?
Have questions? We’d love to discuss how God is calling you.
