There are 195 countries in the world. 7.7 billion people. Over 7,000 unreached people groups. Over 150,000 people dying a day. Poverty, lostness, suffering, child slavery, AIDS, war, famine. Sometimes the problems and the size of the world seem so overwhelming. Not only is it overwhelming, it is vastly ineffective and unfruitful to try to tackle them all. With no synergy, no focus, no teamwork, we see little fruit. But by uniting together and working in partnership, great things can happen.
God has led Central away from the go anywhere, do anything approach, and has instead led us to focus on the N.A.M.E. Region (North Africa and the Middle East)—one of the neediest places on earth. It is a region with tremendous spiritual, physical, and emotional needs.
Central is trying to effect holistic and transformational change in the N.A.M.E Region through the sending of long-term teams, short-term teams, prayer efforts, and field partnerships to make a real impact in this world. We might not be able to change everywhere in the world, but working together we can make a difference in the N.A.M.E Region.
We invite you to join these efforts.
