Blessing isn’t meant to be merely received. Rather, God gives it in His grace so that we in turn can be a blessing to others.

Living out the transformative power of the gospel among the least-reached is a task far greater than any one worker or organization alone. Projects provide invitations for the Body of Christ to play unique and much-needed roles in God’s story of salvation for the nations. Giving to a project means stepping into the story to directly support a ministry and community in need.

As you read through the projects featured in our catalog, please prayerfully consider how God might be able to use you to play a vital role in the story He is writing among the least-reached!

Global English Project

The Global English Project is more than an English school for Kurdish men and women. There, students find peace and rest amid the intense political, social and economic upheaval of their region as well as trusted friends in their teachers. Within this context, Christar workers speak words of truth and hope into the spiritual and social struggles their students experience. Books are a foundational tool in this learning process and a platform for continued dialogue. As conversations lead to deeper relationships, students share their joys, challenges and fears. Will you help expand the library and, through these books, increase the impact of the Global English Project’s ministry, one life at a time?

Lighthouse of Friendship

More than 6 million people living in France have relocated there from other countries. Over a quarter come from tight-knit, least-reached North African communities and tend not to assimilate into the local culture. But at the Lighthouse of Friendship, some of these immigrants gather for English classes, game nights, mommy-and-me playdates and other regular activities. There, they experience Christ’s love through a team of Christar workers. By investing in relationships, the staff at the Lighthouse of Friendship shares the good news with people who may have never heard it or seen it lived out. Over its 20-year history, the center has become a source of stability for the community in a sea of change. Help our workers continue shining the love of Christ by keeping the lights on at the Lighthouse of Friendship!

Iraqi Refugee Outreach

“Can I become a Christian?” Dora* asked Lewis, a Christar worker serving in the U.S., during a driving lesson. Lewis’s team had first connected with her when she attended Yazidi English Studies, one of several programs of the Iraqi Refugee Outreach project. After Dora moved out of an abusive situation, Lewis helped her get her license and find a new sense of home. Now, she continues attending the Arabic church where Lewis ministers, and the ladies on the Iraqi Refugee Outreach team are investing in her and her children. “We work to meet felt or physical needs so that we can also explore people’s spiritual interest,” Lewis explains. Help more women like Dora find community and belonging through a gift to offset the cost of English workbooks for their class.

Arab Woman Today

In the Middle East, the idea of receiving help through counseling can be a taboo topic. But the need to address mental well-being among Arab women is tremendous in this region, where many have been affected by war, discrimination and personal violence. The staff at Arab Woman Today continues to help women heal from these past traumas by connecting them to free sessions with licensed counselors. One young woman, who was abused by her father, received emotional and spiritual support from AWT, which helped enable her to find a job and begin encouraging other young women as well! As conflict increased in her homeland, she struggled to cope; so AWT followed up with her and gave her eight specialized post-trauma sessions over the summer.

Persian Outreach

Christar workers have been serving among Persians for decades and have been blessed to see God building His Church among them in numerous locations around the world! The Persian Outreach Project brings together Christar workers and local believers in the Middle East to share the good news with Persian migrants, refugees and tourists outside their home country. In addition, workers are preparing Persian believers to share their faith within their own unique contexts. With a vision to see mature churches established, this training helps prepare Persian believers to serve faithfully, vibrantly and effectively in their growing community. 




$30 provides training materials for three Persian believers

New Life Resource Center

As COVID-19 ravaged South Asia, marriages and families faced the strain of financial hardship and stress. To help build up Christian couples in this region, local church leaders requested that the staff of the New Life Resource Center provide a seminar about biblical marriage and family. “It was so exciting to see over 60 couples come to hear the Word of God and participate with enthusiasm,” the project director shared. “At that time, we realized that this type of seminar was the need of the hour.” The resource center team plans to hold similar seminars for pastors and their wives quarterly in the coming year and needs funds to cover quality literature, food and travel. Partner with the New Life Resource Center to strengthen marriages, which provide a public witness and representation of the love of Christ and His Church in action.

Crisis Relief Fund

God placed Thane* on the border of Myanmar, in a strategic location for ministry. With refugees pouring into his country after a military coup, Thane was overwhelmed by the desperate physical needs of those who’d been displaced. With Christar Crisis Relief funding, he distributed food and Bibles to more than 500 starving people. But that wasn’t
enough. “I keep filling their stomachs; why don’t I feed their spiritual hunger?” he mused. He responded by holding a four-day camp for more than 50 refugees, during which 15 people trusted in Christ and 13 believers experienced personal revival. With additional funding, he hopes to hold a monthly camp with four days of nourishing food and intensive Bible study for up to 100 refugees at a time.

Cleft of the Rock

To be effective in ministry and avoid burnout, both cross-cultural workers and local believers need support as they serve among least-reached people. Cleft of the Rock Ministry Center in the Middle East provides a safe place where they can rest and be restored so they can continue to live and work in difficult places. One family shares about their recent stay, “A few years ago, we went through many ministry and life challenges.  We recognized that regular rest was essential if we were going to not only make it but thrive in this difficult land. [Cleft of the Rock] has been an essential part of that rest as we have taken time away from the craziness of city life to have time as a family and a couple, and to meet with the Lord.”

Barnabas Building

Relationships are the foundation for the spread of the gospel! In their efforts to bring access to the good news, Christar workers bought land and began farming alongside a rural South Asian community with no known believers. As they formed purposeful friendships, these workers sensed the need to establish a more intentional presence through constructing the Barnabas Building. The first phase of this three-story structure will house farm equipment and provide rooms for ESL classes and personal connection, as well as a site for worship gatherings. The building process will provide employment for
community members who have lost jobs during the pandemic; and the  finished construction will allow Christar workers to put down roots as they come alongside this community to meet needs and share the hope of Christ.

Timothy Project

Middle Eastern culture relies on face-to-face interaction, but the pandemic has created a new interest in online resources. Guided by a multinational leadership team, the local writers and graphic designers of the Timothy Project create interactive, culturally relevant materials to guide Middle Eastern believers in applying biblical truth. To date, they have produced over 200 lessons, including those for young adults and women’s groups, as well as 24 television programs that introduce the project’s Bible studies. Through these tools, followers of Christ are equipped to live out their faith and disciple others. In light of new urgency to make lessons available, the project is developing improved means for distribution. All lessons are now being formatted so that they can be accessed in a variety of ways, including as e-books and through a mobile app.

CHL Women's Bible School

In one of the very least-reached regions of the world, the CHL Women’s Bible School equips Christian women to share the good news of Christ in their homes, churches and communities. In addition to providing biblical education and ministry training through a two-year residential program, the school offers computer classes not only to students but also to members of the local community, demonstrating God’s love by meeting a felt need. Most of the school’s current computers were acquired a decade ago and need to be replaced. Help the CHL update its equipment so that it can more effectively serve both its students and people in the surrounding community.

Haven of Hope

Haven of Hope provides refuge and counsel to women and their children seeking shelter from abuse. The rise of Islamic nationalism and pandemic-related issues have taken a significant economic, psychological and emotional toll in the Middle East; suicide rates
are at an all-time high, and domestic violence has increased exponentially. As Haven of Hope ministers to those who are hurting, workers also disciple and equip local believers to serve in the center and in their communities. When a woman visits the center for the first time, she receives a New Testament in her language and hears a clear, concise presentation of the gospel. In addition to providing for physical, emotional and spiritual needs, the center offers Bible seminars, as well as job and life skills seminars for women.

$15 provides a hat, scarf, sweater and gloves for one woman

JETS

Since 1991, Jordan Evangelical Theological Seminary (JETS) has been preparing spiritual leaders from and for the Arab world. JETS is an accredited school offering bachelor’s and master’s programs and a Doctor of Ministry degree. Graduates serve in roles including church planters, pastors, teachers, writers, evangelists, worship leaders and women’s ministry leaders throughout the Middle East, the Arabian Peninsula and North Africa.  Through them, God is planting churches and bringing many to faith in Christ. Provide students with the gift of rest through a retreat for the entire student body in the midst of their rigorous studies each semester, offering them needed refreshment as they prepare to invest their lives in growing the Church in difficult places.

Deaf Initiative

Only 2% of the approximately 70 million Deaf worldwide have been introduced to the gospel. The global Deaf community represents one of the largest least-reached people groups in the world. In many cultures, the Deaf are neglected by and isolated from those who can hear. The Deaf Initiative is a pioneering ministry to mobilize and equip Deaf and hearing churches to bring the gospel to the Deaf worldwide. There are few resources in sign languages that communicate God’s heart for the least-reached. But through this project, work has already begun to create a series of video Bible studies that introduces the need and vision for more churches to mobilize workers to reach the Deaf.
