Our Partners + Projects

We believe the Good News of God’s Kingdom brings wholeness and flourishing to every aspect 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 frontier, we advocate for long-term, collaborative relationships with local partners who are already serving the unreached in their own communities.

Africa

The Fur are an unreached people group in Darfur, a region in the west of Sudan. While Darfur experiences much turmoil, followers of Jesus are making God’s love evident among the Fur. Project funds provide education and training for Fur leaders serving among the unreached people groups of Sudan. Donate now.

The Dizi people of the area around Maji were heavily enslaved in the 1800s during the nation-building era of Ethiopia. Traditionally animists, the Dizi were also spiritually enslaved by witch doctors and evil spirits. Presbyterian missionaries moved into Maji in 1947 and planted seeds of the Gospel, and in recent years, those seeds have taken root. Captivated by the healing power of Jesus and the unconditional and patient love of Christian missionaries, thousands of Dizi people have turned away from witch doctors to set their hopes in Jesus. This project funds the translation of the Bible in the Dizi language. Donate now.

The Jimma Presbytery of the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus is passionate about sharing the Good News of Jesus’ power and love with the people of southwest Ethiopia—many of whom live in spiritual slavery to and fear of evil spirits. This project covers five key regions south of Jimma: Menja, Tsara, Dawro, Ameya and Kaffa. Funds for this project support evangelists who aren’t able to farm their land when they’re traveling to share the Gospel as well as leadership training for women and youth and contextualized approaches to ministry among the unreached. 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 complete list of giving opportunities:

  • Arsi Bible Translation: Funds for this project subsidize the salaries of the Bible translation team. 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.

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.

Strong cross-cultural relationships are the basic building blocks of frontier mission. Funds for this project cover travel expenses for pastors and other representatives of the Evangelical Church of the Republic of Niger to visit partners in the United States and form deeper bonds for future ministry partnership. 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.

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 is reaching out to Arab seekers in the Middle East and Europe in culturally sensitive and compassionate ways with Arabic Bibles and other teaching resources. Donate now.

There’s an above-ground, historical Arab church in Egypt—and there’s also now a growing, below-ground Arab church composed of people from many different cultural backgrounds. This underground church meets in living rooms, homes and conference centers. New followers of Jesus are being taught and discipled by a network of leaders who are respectful of cultural differences and gifted at answering fresh inquiries about the claims of Christ. They are also responding to the practical, emotional and spiritual needs of Arab refugees pouring into Egypt from nearby nations. Funds for this project go directly to the unique needs of these workers and new disciples. Donate now.

In many respects, Arab countries in the Middle East look to Egypt for leadership regarding culture, art, business and government. Egypt also leads the Arab world with the highest number of Christians within the country. God has given Egyptian followers of Jesus a vision to share the Gospel with other Arab countries and Europe, and over 40 Egyptian missionaries are now being supported through Frontier Fellowship. Funds for this project will help support additional Egyptian workers to respond 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 above-ground and underground church members. 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 above-ground 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 Egypt’s Cairo Theological Seminary 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

Frontier Fellowship is actively engaged in various frontier mission projects in Central Asia.

South Asia

Frontier Fellowship has made a four-year commitment through Finishing the Task to send new teams in India to share the Good News of Jesus with four unengaged, unreached people groups. Funds for this project cover annual ministry and living expenses for teams of two church planters and their families serving the Bairagi, Bandhi Nagalu, Chanao and Gandharv in northeastern India. Donate now.

Half of the world’s unreached people groups live in India.

Funds for this project also subsidize sustainable development training programs. Donate now.

The Meghwal and Bhil peoples of Pakistan are not only unreached people groups—they’re considered outcasts by their own society. Social groups above them keep the Meghwal and Bhil trapped in a cycle of poverty, and their children aren’t welcome in local schools. Schools in the Sand provides opportunities for these children to study for and take the government exam, which gives them access to 6th grade in a government school and the chance to further their education. Through this educational ministry, families are also being reached with the Gospel. Donate now.

A team in a South Asian nation is working on a Bible translation in a language spoken by over 200 million speakers in the Muslim world. Funds for this project support the ongoing translation effort. Donate now.

Europe

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 strategic support for key workers and initiatives aimed at introducing Jesus to migrant workers and refugees in European megacities. Donate now.

Global

Perspectives on the World Christian Movement is a 15-week course highlighting the biblical, historical, cultural and strategic aspects of God’s global purpose. It’s a powerful, effective tool for mobilizing and equipping the Church to respond to God’s call in mission. Funds for this project will help expand the reach of the Perspectives training by translating teaching material into other languages. Donate now.
