Our partner House of Hope began as a summer camp ministry. Today, it has a staff of 30 whose programs include church planting, summer camps, a Bible training institute, media programs, micro-enterprise, and humanitarian projects.

The two main people groups House of Hope works with are the Arabs and the Berbers. Very few believers exist among the Arabs. Conversely, among the Berbers there are now about 60,000 believers of which 95 percent are from Muslim background. Many are members of the officially registered Protestant Church, and their churches are quite large with organized meetings in church buildings rather than homes.

Even through the decade of terrorism in the 1990s, believers were never a target and enjoyed the freedom to worship openly. However, in March 2006, a new law was issued concerning freedom of worship and religious minorities. It prohibited evangelism as well as religious meetings except in places with legal permits. As a result, many of the locations used for worship were forced to close. Christians who actively shared their faith found themselves in court, accused of evangelizing Muslims.

With the introduction of these laws, church attendance decreased. Today, despite ongoing persecution and harassment, the Church in this area is growing again.

General Fund – House of Hope, Algeria

In the mid-1970s, the cause of Christ in Algeria seemed to take a big hit when practically all foreign groups were expelled from the country. But God promised to build His Church, and He is doing just that. Our partner House of Hope began as a summer camp ministry. Today, it has a staff of 30 whose programs include church planting, summer camps, a Bible training institute, media programs, micro-enterprise, and humanitarian projects.
