Cross-cultural work in Muslim communities can be incredibly challenging! To be effective and avoid burnout, both cross-cultural workers and local believers need support as they serve among least-reached people.
The Cleft of the Rock is a retreat center that helps keep workers on the field in countries where ministry is especially difficult. Since it was founded by Christar workers in 2010, this center has restored and equipped workers from throughout the Middle East and Central Asia through counseling, cultural orientation, group retreats, team building and personal retreats. Each year, it serves approximately 2,000 individuals.
Located in the forested mountains of the Middle East, Cleft of the Rock provides a safe place where workers and local believers can be restored. There, they can pull back from ministry and the stress of living in places that are hostile to followers of Christ. Through Cleft of the Rock, they receive teaching, counseling and rest, and they return to their places of ministry better able to serve.
Your gift to the Cleft of the Rock will help workers and local believers continue to serve and thrive in hard places! And, as they are able to minister to these least-reached communities, more least-reached people will hear and embrace the gospel.
Cleft of the rock is seeking to raise $500,000 to build a multipurpose building that will allow this ministry center to host and train up to 50 people at a time—and help keep more workers on field!
