Since our beginnings, we have been driven by a deep conviction that everyone should have the opportunity to hear the gospel at least once. Sadly, there are still thousands of peoples and communities that have never heard about Jesus, ever. We are looking for people with a passion for Jesus and a passion to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers established among the least reached. We focus on evangelism, discipleship and church planting among those who have never yet heard of Christ. Do you share this passion and want to be involved in either pioneering or joining church planting initiatives? If so, we are looking for you, and many more like you, to join us.

Participants Profile:

  • You love people from different Middle Eastern countries, most of whom have a Muslim background, and are willing to share your heart, home and life with them.
  • You have a great passion for prayer and are willing to make a spiritual commitment to church planting, knowing that prayer is the DNA of healthy church planting.
  • You share the vision, contribute ideas, have stamina and spontaneity for a church that is as imperfect as the people in it.
