Meet Arizona Missionaries

Arizona Baptists Serving in Central Asia

Most Central Asian believers are first-generation Christians. Only a handful have known Jesus for more than 30 years. There are over 400 million Central Asians spread across 10 countries, and they comprise 386 people groups. Of these, 39% do not have any church-planting efforts among them. Islam is the predominant religion in Central Asia. Many who choose to follow Jesus are persecuted for betraying their former faith, family and traditions. Central Asians are experiencing deep grief and are suffering as a result of war, repressive laws and natural disaster. But God is at work in these countries, oftentimes opening the door for Gospel presentations through partnerships with nationals and opportunities to work alongside them through Send Relief projects, such as the digging of wells for clean water.
