Ethiopia

Compelled by God’s love and by the reality that millions of people live and die without knowing Christ, we strive to expand the Church’s capacity to make disciples and multiply churches in communities where Christ is least known, so that the triune God alone may be genuinely worshipped by every person.

Communities where Christ is least known

Children and youth

Well over half of Ethiopia (approximately 102 million people) are under the age of 20. As a result of rapid population growth, migration to urban areas and the availability of technology and the Internet, most of these young people have limited opportunities to come to know Christ and become his followers.

Vulnerable

The urban population has increased to around 20 per cent in this primarily rural country and the rate of change is increasing. Poverty and abuse remain major issues, especially among newcomers to urban areas. Girls and homeless street boys are at risk of being trafficked.

Prayers
