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.

Our teams have made several visits to different groups of houses and in different Berber regions to encourage them and equip them with biblical training tools. At the same time, we try to meet the needs of the neediest through the distribution of food and clothing. In the last few weeks the translation of the book I Instructed my Son was finished. We have been able to publish 500 copies of this book already. These have been distributed to families and several churches. In this quarter, 6,726 DVDs and CDs containing Bible movies and audio Bible texts were distributed. This blessed many people who could not read. Three music albums and songs have been distributed to churches in Algeria. Furthermore, 239 TV programs were produced and transmitted by satellite in recent months. Nearly 3,800 people who watched the television programs responded to the call and are followed by our work team. Praise the Lord that 53 people turned to the Good News as a result of the broadcasts! God is doing many wonderful things.
