Our Partners + Projects

We believe the Gospel is Good News for every part of life. Our partnerships with ministries around the world share a vision of introducing people to Jesus and fostering development and transformation in places that lack adequate access to literacy and education, Biblical training, healthcare, economic opportunity and social welfare.

As we connect the Western Church with the world’s least-reached people and places, we cultivate long-term, collaborative relationships with indigenous partners working for the physical and spiritual flourishing of their communities.

Africa

In Darfur, a region of west Sudan that has experienced much turmoil, followers of Jesus are making God’s love evident to those longing for hope, peace and a more stable future. Project funds provide education and pastoral training for new leaders who are serving among Sudan’s unreached people groups. Donate now.

Southwest Ethiopia, a region bordering the Great Rift Valley, is home to numerous unreached people groups. One of our partners, the Jimma Bethel Synod (JBS) of the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus, serves in five key regions south of Jimma: Menja, Tsara, Dawro, Ameya and Kaffa. Many people in these areas live in fear of evil spirits, and JBS is eager to introduce them to the hope and freedom Jesus offers. Funds for this project help JBS share the Good News through traveling evangelists, leadership training for women, youth initiatives and outreach to university students and Muslims. Donate now.

One of our partner organizations, Light of Hope Ministry Ethiopia (LOHME), is reaching out to over 10 million Arsi Oromo people. The ministry approach is holistic, focusing on literacy, health, church planting, Bible translation and evangelism among this Muslim people group. Teams of teacher-evangelists are trained and sent to villages that want a school in their community. Teachers build peaceful relationships between Muslims and emerging followers of Jesus and seek to plant churches that reflect the forms and traditions of the local culture.

LOHME also trains nurses and other health professionals to work in village health stations while sharing the Gospel with the communities they serve. Funds help build and furnish village schools and Light of Hope Academy, a Christian training college for nurses and teacher-evangelists, while also providing scholarships for college students and support for Bible translation work in the Arsi Oromo language. See below for a list of giving opportunities:

  • Arsi Bible Translation: Funds for this project subsidize the salaries of the translation team and provide for the publication, purchase and distribution of print and digital audio Bibles. Donate now.
  • ESL Training: Funds for this project cover the course curriculum materials to teach English to LOHME teachers, evangelists and high school students. Donate now.
  • Ethno Music: Funds for this project support recording, duplication and distribution expenses for contextualized Gospel music in the Arsi Oromo language. Donate now.

As more and more Dizi people turn to Jesus, the young and growing church around Maji is working tirelessly to train and equip pastors, evangelists and leaders to respond to the increasing needs of those seeking to learn more about Jesus. The Holy Spirit has convicted the Maji church to practice stewardship and work toward sustainability. Funds for this project will help establish an apple tree nursery. In time, this will generate income to subsidize the Maji health clinic and church leaders’ salaries and provide a unique source of nutrition for the people living in the highlands of southwest Ethiopia. Donate now.

The Eglise Evangélique de la République du Niger (EERN) is sharing the Good News of Jesus in a nation where there are few followers of Jesus. EERN is training church planters and pastors, establishing churches and helping people groups like the Hausa, Djerma, Fulani and Tuareg gain access to clean water, hygiene and sanitation improvements, education, health initiatives and medical care.

Ongoing ethnic and religious conflict and famine have displaced many people from Sudan and South Sudan and forced them to seek safety in neighboring nations. We’ve partnered with a group of pastors who’ve expanded their ministry to serve refugees in East and Central Africa. They’re building relationships with formerly unengaged people groups, meeting practical needs and creating access to the Good News of Jesus. Funds for this project support efforts such as pastoral training, trauma counseling and travel between ministry areas. Donate now.

The Suri, traditional religionists from a Southwest Ethiopian oral culture, haven’t had a written language until now. Frontier Fellowship is partnering with an ongoing Bible translation project to introduce literacy programs for children and adults. In cooperation with the Ethiopian government’s Ministry of Education, children will be taught to read using the Bible—the only available written resource in the Suri language—as part of their standard education. Funds for this project will help train and support literacy teachers, develop preschool and elementary materials, train native Suri speakers as public school teachers and translate 30 Bible stories and three books of the Bible. Donate now.

Due to conflict, famine and political instability, large numbers of people have fled South Sudan and Sudan and sought safety in neighboring nations. In the process, many children have become orphans or been separated from their families. Our partners serving in East-Central Africa’s refugee camps are launching a pilot foster care program to integrate unaccompanied minors into local families, care for their basic needs and offer access to education and spiritual development. Funds for this project provide school uniforms and tuition, trauma care and training and financial assistance for foster families. Donate now.

Middle East

Frontier Fellowship partners with ministries in the Middle East that are responding to the overwhelming interest among Arab Muslims to know more about Jesus. Funds for this project provide support for a ministry that disciples and equips new followers of Jesus in the Arab world, supporting and encouraging them in practical ways as they learn to walk out their faith in Jesus.

There’s a known, long-established Arab Church in Egypt, and there’s also a growing underground church made up of people from different cultural backgrounds. A network of wise, gifted leaders are discipling new followers of Jesus in culturally sensitive ways. They’re also responding to the needs of the rising number of refugees entering Egypt. Funds for this project go directly to the unique needs of these workers and new disciples. Donate now.

Many Middle Eastern nations look to Egypt as a cultural, economic and political leader. Egypt also leads the Arab world with the highest number of Christians. God has given Egyptian followers of Jesus a vision to share the Gospel and is using the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo (ETSC) and the Egyptian Church to pioneer frontier mission movements throughout the Middle East and beyond. Funds for this project help support Egyptian missionaries who are responding to the overwhelming interest among Muslims to know more about Jesus. Donate now.

As Muslims find faith in Jesus and the underground church in Egypt grows, two of the greatest needs are for discipleship training tools and for trusting, healing, peacemaking environments between members of the known, long-established Arab Church and the underground church. Funds for this project supply books and videos written especially for Muslim Background Believers (MBBs) on the road of discipleship with Jesus as well as training events to encourage and equip Arab Church leaders to reach out to MBBs with hospitality, love and support. Donate now.

The underground church in the Persian world is experiencing phenomenal growth. Frontier Fellowship partners with key leaders and ministries to respond to the needs of this growing church. Funds for this project provide theological and practical training for pastors and leaders engaged in God’s work among Persians. Donate now.

The Gospel is quickly taking root in the Arab world like never before. Recognizing the strategic value of equipping the Evangelical Theological Seminary in Cairo with frontier mission training, Frontier Fellowship helped fund an Arabic translation of Perspectives on the World Christian Movement. Perspectives is now part of the required coursework at the seminary, casting the vision for frontier mission to future leaders of the Egyptian church. Funds for this ongoing project will be used to print and distribute Perspectives books, train teachers in the Perspectives curriculum and subsidize expenses for classes. Donate now.

Central Asia

Rapidly growing numbers of migrants and refugees are entering Europe from nations that restrict Gospel access. As they settle into cultural contexts that are more open to exploration and freedom of expression, opportunities are ripe to share the Good News of Jesus. Funds for this project provide support and training for workers who are developing initiatives aimed at introducing Jesus to migrant workers and refugees in European megacities. Donate now.

This partner organization is developing ministry leadership teams and sharing the Gospel with teens and young adults throughout Central Asia. Teams reach out to young people through sports programs, camps, discipleship programs and care for girls who’ve been abused. Through collaboration with local churches, the ministry equips new leaders and creates opportunities for leaders to meet periodically for training and support to strengthen their ministries. Funds for this project provide transportation and lodging for leaders who attend these events. Donate now.

Few resources and services are available to people living in underdeveloped areas of Central Asia. Frontier Fellowship partners with a Christian-led community center that models the love and care of Jesus to over 16,000 people from 39 villages, most of whom are Muslims from numerous unreached people groups. This center is a hub of activity bringing opportunity and transformation through healthcare services, computer and internet access, a radio station and agricultural training. In addition, children can receive supplemental education through classes in math, English and computer skills. Funds for this project will help provide school supplies, computer equipment, facility improvements and teacher salaries. Donate now.

Two locally led NGOs in Central Asia operate shelters that offer holistic support to women seeking refuge from human trafficking, forced prostitution, domestic violence and abandonment. The shelters provide lodging, food, basic necessities, medical and prenatal care, counseling, legal aid and educational assistance for children. A recently opened cafe generates income for one shelter and provides vocational training. The other shelter offers domestic violence prevention training. Funds for this project will help these ministries become self-sustaining as they create space for women to experience God’s healing and restoration. Donate now.

Schools in the Sand provides education for children of the Meghwal and Bhil ethnic groups. These minority tribes face significant discrimination by other groups, which keeps them trapped in a cycle of poverty.
