Our teams in Central Asia are training people for ministry, serving the homeless, and pioneering medical mission efforts.
Central Asia spans nine countries and contains more than 500 different people groups. Over 95% of the population in Central Asia does not have access to the gospel, and governments in many countries are not friendly towards Christianity. However, the church in Central Asia is growing and new believers are coming to know Jesus.
Our Ministries in Central Asia
World Horizons has teams in three Central Asian countries comprised of workers from a number of countries, languages, and backgrounds. The majority of our teams are based in urban areas, with many team members preparing to reach out to smaller cities and towns. All teams in this region focus on disciple making, church planting, and mission development.
Teams in these countries run discipleship training programs for indigenous believers. These are year-long, intensive ministry training programs that emphasize character building through a monastic lifestyle and commitment to the nations. These training programs support the teams’ visions of indigenous mission movements to unreached peoples within these countries and to other nations.
Ministry training participants and team members attend local churches and serve the community they are in through volunteering with orphans, local Christian congregations, and the homeless.
Join Our Teams in Central Asia
Anyone joining a team long-term will complete on-field orientation. Part of this is language learning and, while new team members will certainly be involved in ministry from the beginning, their main focus for the first two years on the field should be language learning. All long-term workers must complete training with World Horizons in the US or UK before joining a team.
