North Africa Region

About the Region

A land of jasmine-scented coastlines and stunning desert landscapes, North Africa is home to hundreds of millions of Muslims. But in the time of the early church, this region nurtured thriving Christian communities and desert monasteries. 

An ancient crossroads of civilizations, history is everywhere. Roman ruins are scattered across the land. Even the most cosmopolitan urban centers are just a stumble away from winding historical districts that pulse with the activity of daily life.

Multicultural and forward thinking, many young people in the region feel jaded with the religious, political, and economic status quo. This has fostered a new spiritual openness as North Africans search for lasting hope, meaning, and purpose.

Quick Facts

Spiritual Climate

In the seventh century, waves of Arab Muslims swept across North Africa, dramatically altering the spiritual landscape of the region.

But long before Islam’s arrival, Christianity flourished in the region. North Africa was once a theological center of the early church, and some of the most influential believers of the time came from this desert region.

Today, millions of North Africans live where there is no tangible witness for Christ. For them to ever hear the Gospel, someone needs to bring it to them.
