  • “If the ratio of Christian workers to total population that exists in North Africa were applied to the U.S. and Canada, those two countries would have about 120 full-time Christian workers living in them. Also, there would be only seven small churches in the entirety of those two countries.”

Ministries And Organizations Who Are Making a Difference

I am not personally involved in all the ministries and organizations listed below. I am merely listing known possibilities within a limited framework of credentials. Please do your own research.

Evangelical Free Church - ReachGlobal

"Through a spectrum of ministry and service, ReachGlobal's ambitious vision to impact 100 million people with the gospel over ten years, is well on its way through deep partnerships and empowered disciples who are making disciples in their own native context."

The Evangelical Covenant Church - World Missions

"...we are committed to culturally relevant evangelism and the formation of communities of Christ followers, to spiritual formation and equipping God’s people for ministry and leadership, and to transformational ministries that demonstrate the whole gospel by seeking to address the spiritual, social, emotional, mental, physical, and justice needs of people."
