CMS is committed to bearing witness to God’s love in the nations of the Middle East. Islam is the dominant religion across the region, with more than 95% adherence in some countries. There are millions of gospel-poor people.
In a region torn by instability, where people face many emotional, social and physical challenges in their daily lives, there are windows of opportunity for the light of the gospel to shine through.
Our work in the Middle East
Some CMS missionaries work among refugees and other people groups, offering hospitality and sharing the gospel through stories. Many people are open to hearing about the eternal hope offered in God’s word.
CMS workers also serve in church-based ministry and theological education, training leaders and helping equip believers to reach out to refugees, to others in their community, and in other parts of the world.
