Afrique du Nord

Of the 96 million people in North Africa, only a relative handful worship the Lord Jesus Christ. We seek to creatively cross barriers into the Muslim world of North Africa, proclaiming the Gospel where Christ is not known. By developing partnerships with like-minded organisations, we aim to accelerate placements of personnel where they are most needed. We envision expansion into the urban centres along the Mediterranean Sea through missional businesses and through professional consulting among the most vulnerable segments of society. We aim to establish creative ministries among the six desert tribes of the Sahara Desert, comprising 7.5 million people.

Communities where He is least known

Urban Unemployed Youth

In one country of North Africa, 33% of youth are unemployed, with 40% of university graduates unemployed. One of the of university graduates said, “For us, unemployment is a kind of blasphemy. An unemployed is not a person… Society itself does not accept him. What is the use of that person?” (Breaking the Barriers to Youth Inclusion, p.24, World Bank 2014)

We are creating businesses focused on hiring young people. We are equipping and helping establish them as productive members of society. We want to demonstrate the transformative impact of Christ, and see whole families follow Him.

People With Special Needs

In many Muslim cultures, special needs children are considered a cause of shame. Mothers and daughters struggle to care for them in unseen rooms without assistance or training. Many are suffering. We have partnered with those whose vision is to bring the light of Christ into this darkness. They enable local initiatives, creating spaces for disabled people and caregivers to grow, learn, gain skills and simply be loved.

Nomads

Six of the 100 ethnic groups in North Africa are desert nomads. Very few are bringing the Gospel to these 7.5 million people. Working with nomads is challenging, requiring creative solutions to where we live and how we minister to them. We are finding ways to meet them from the coastal regions in the north, and from the southern Saharan countries.

Prières

1

Pray for God to use our new businesses to open doors for many other missional businesses.

2

Pray for global business people to discover the potential of missional business and start
new businesses in North Africa as they invest and help us find more workers.

3

Pray for more professionals to serve those with special needs, the dying, and people at risk.

4

Pray for more workers to reach nomads and for ministry opportunities to arise for those regions.
