Our strategy in North Africa is to preserve the Christian presence where it is under threat or in persecution, helping to sustain developing churches, while also training and sending church planters to areas where no churches currently exist. Because North Africa’s evangelical churches are quite young with many believers only in the faith for a few years, organizational development and leadership training are top priorities. Additionally, we focus on evangelistic media, creative holistic outreach, and ministry to women and children—marginalized groups who have special needs for spiritual and physical development.

Despite its strong Christian heritage, the region of North Africa (Algeria, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Morocco) has been greatly influenced by Islam since the seventh century. Most North Africans are at least nominally Muslim, causing some to call this region the “Land of the Vanished Church.”

With few evangelical Christians and the serious risks involved in openly sharing the Gospel, evangelism of the region’s 174 million people is a great challenge. In recent years, the difficult environment for Christianity has intensified with civil unrest taking place in three of the five countries as a result of “Arab Spring.” Extremist Islamic groups are gaining power with an agenda to Islamize the entire region and rid it of its Christian presence. Despite these challenges, more and more North Africans are finding salvation in Jesus Christ and boldly taking up the challenge to reach their countrymen for the Lord.
