Berber Evangelistic Association (BEA) was established in the 1980s. With a focus on translating and producing DVDs, satellite television programs, indigenous music, Bibles, and other Christian literature in the Berber language, their vision is to see the 25 million Berbers living in North Africa have access to the Bible in their own language and ultimately put their faith in Jesus.

Millions of Berbers live across the vast regions of North Africa and are, like most people, strongly attached to their own culture and language. Although “Arabization” has swept across northern Africa, its original inhabitants, the majority Berber people, have fought to retain their distinct cultural characteristics and traditions. Today most Berbers are Muslim, although often their beliefs are nominal.

The Berbers are the most responsive Muslim group in North Africa, and the Berber Church is much larger than that of other people groups in North Africa. This growth has been partially fueled by the work of the Berber Evangelistic Association which recognized years ago the gospel potential among the Berbers. In a context where they feel constantly pressured to accept Arab language and culture, anything that is produced in the Berber language generates immediate interest.

Major achievements to date include translation of the New Testament, Psalms, and several films. When BEA translated the Jesus film into Berber, it was the first time for many to see a film in their own language. The film was so popular that it was copied over and over again and passed from one village to the next. Today it can be found all over the Berber-populated areas of the country.
