Though affected by increasing Islamization, vast migration, secularism, poverty, and social justice issues, the people of Central Asia live in a strategic region, bridging China and the Middle East.

Central Asia is a land of growing Islam influence, migration, secularism, poverty, and social justice issues. But it is also a strategic region, bridging China and the Middle East. Our goal is to select partners in Central Asia who are passionate for the unreached. Then we help them tell God’s story in a way that wins hearts to Jesus. We focus on three key areas: equipping leaders, helping the poor, and training Christian leaders.

Central Asia came into focus with the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1991. But the history of the people goes back more than 3,000 years. The region’s claim to fame to this day remains the Silk Road. Cultures, races, and religions intersected along this historic trade route. With a total population of more than 375 million, the countries of Central Asia include Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. Contrary to common belief, Christianity predated Islam in Central Asia. In earlier times, Christian missionaries traveled the Silk Road to carry the Good News to these lands. But then the Islamic and Mongol conquerors came, bringing a profound change to the culture and religious beliefs of the people. Today, most Central Asians identify strongly with Muslim culture.

In the dim light of what remains, there is great opportunity. Our partners are using innovative ways to meet the needs of those they serve. You can help equip bold believers throughout this region to carry the Good News to people who have never heard before.
