Your Prayers – Making an Impact

In the Middle East, we empower national leaders to proclaim the grace and truth of Jesus and plant reproducing house churches among the underserved.

Pray for House Churches in the Middle East
Our primary strategy for impacting the Middle East is the multiplication of house churches among the underserved peoples – those who are unchurched and those of the majority religious background. House churches reflect the New Testament model, avoid costly buildings, allow rapid expansion and draw less attention than large public buildings.

Pray for National Leaders
We are also working to equip and release national leaders to plant house churches and develop local leaders. National leaders are given freedom to create hybrid models fitting their ministry context. Young women are viewed as having an equal calling and are developed as leaders in a region where women are traditionally ostracized or neglected. We frequently partner with leaders of other traditional denominations who have a passion for proclaiming Christ and planting churches.

Pray for Ministries of Love and Compassion
We not only proclaim the grace and truth of Jesus through house church networks but also through love and compassion expressed to the people of the region. Women leaders minister to women and girls who have been physically and sexually abused. Leaders minister to male violent offenders in a maximum security prison and to their families outside the prison. Communities of friendship and love are created for at-risk young adults. “Searching Groups,” comprised of educated and often affluent members of the primary religion, gather in cities to discover Who Jesus is.

Praise the Lord for New Opportunities
God is opening networks, providing new leaders and expanding His kingdom in the Middle East. We praise the Lord that we are entering three new countries in the Middle East. Pray for our leaders as they go into these new areas, often places antagonistic to the message of the gospel.

Continue to pray many will find the answer to the question, “Who is this Jesus?”

─ Dale, Middle East Area Director
