Our teams in North Africa are seeking to sensitively share Christ’s love with those they befriend. The people of the region are predominantly Muslim; less than one percent of the population have accepted the Gospel. There is currently no active Christian witness to several of the nomadic people groups. We believe that through stepping out in faith to share the Good News with the North African people, God will use us to minister to those who are seeking hope and answers to life’s questions.
Many people are looking for solutions to their nation’s problems, and to personal challenges; unemployment, a lack of social welfare and harsh economic inequality are experienced by many. There is also the threat of extremist movements growing in the background. Despite the current circumstances, this is a significant time for Christians to show love and share the hope they have – more people have become believers and showing deep interest than ever before. More workers are needed to take up opportunities in areas where Jesus is simply not yet known.
In the face of everyday discrimination, indigenous believers are persevering in following Jesus. Mission workers, by responding with flexibility and ongoing commitment, continue to build relationships and support growing local fellowships. Through working in a variety of businesses, social projects, teaching or tourism, our workers are connected with people from all walks of life. It is our hope that they will disciple those they befriend by sharing with them about Jesus.
Join Our Teams in North Africa
There are short-term opportunities for you to serve alongside our teams in North Africa. The program offered in these countries includes language learning, community living, supporting the local church and participating in regular team ministries while using your individual skills to help with various projects.
Our teams in North Africa also receive those that want to join their team on a long-term placement. Prior to going to the field, new team members must complete one of our long-term training programs. Once on the field, they generally spend their first two years focused on language learning while engaging in ministries established by the long-term team. Whichever country new members join, they will focus from the beginning on encouraging local Christians and getting to know non-Christians through the team’s ministries.
