Our primary strategy in Southeast Asia is to train and send church planters to live in unreached communities, share the Gospel, form house churches, and initiate holistic projects that help meet pressing community needs. Typically, Muslims must be exposed to a Christian witness 50 times before they will believe in Christ. In addition to church planting, we also emphasize leadership training, media outreach, holistic ministry, and youth development. Our ultimate goal is to see believers join together in house churches that are impacting their Muslim communities with the love of Christ.

Except for the Philippines which is majority Catholic, the countries of Southeast Asia—Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the southern region of Thailand—are dominated by Islam. In total, more than 230 million Muslims inhabit this region. In Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim country, there are many positive dynamics taking place including the presence of healthy churches, relative religious freedom, and openness on the part of Muslims to the Gospel. Still, Indonesia has more unreached people groups than any other country in the world except India.

The next ten years will be a key time in the history of Indonesia. The Church is breaking through long-held barriers. As these breakthroughs happen, there is great potential for the Church to break through the barrier of Islam. With your partnership, thousands of Muslims are being reached with the Gospel, and churches are being formed in areas where they have never existed before.
