Where We Work: Middle East

10/40 Window | Africa | Asia | Middle East

Middle Eastern ManThe Middle East is defined as a region encompassing southwestern Asia and northeastern Africa, spanning from Morocco to Pakistan, including the Caucasus. The Middle East and North Africa consist of 22 Arab nations. The countries of the Middle East are all part of Asia. This is a region that is home to the beginning of civilization and of all three monotheistic religions: Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

More than 90% of the people of the Middle East are Muslims. There are approximately 15 to 20 million Arab Christians living in the Middle East. Most of these Christians do not have freedom of religion and lack of basic human rights. In some countries within the Middle East, it is illegal to practice their Christian faith and they are not allowed to have a Bible. Many Christians have become martyrs for the cause of Christ.

Nations for Jesus is committed to communicate the message of salvation to the people of Middle East. We are striving to make inroads into this region with a goal to see churches planted.
