Support Christians in Central Asia

Christians in Central Asia are facing huge challenges, and we want to invite you to help them. Our partner and his co-workers travel to countries like Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan to help local Christian workers who are sharing the good news of Jesus and discipling new believers who face persecution.

Most Christians in Central Asia are unable to lead ordinary lives. They can be arrested for reading the Bible in a public place like a bus or a train, or for telling other people about Jesus.

Often the homes of local pastors or believers can be searched and their belongings confiscated by the police because everyday Christian activities like praying together, or doing a Bible study can be deemed as ‘illegal.’

Take Tajikistan, for example. New churches that do not have their own buildings cannot hold Sunday services in other buildings because it’s prohibited by the police.

Obtaining permission from the government is very difficult and complicated. Also, they do not have the resources to purchase a building. So, they are forced to worship in secret and if they are caught doing this they could face interrogation and heavy fines.

Release channels financial resources to local Christian workers across Central Asia through our trusted ministry partners. When the going gets hard they can count on our prayers and support to help them stand strong in their faith.
