A diverse land of climates and peoples, Eurasia presents both challenges and opportunities for sharing the gospel.

The vast expanse known as Eurasia is characterized by geographic and social extremes. From the frozen plains of Siberia to the sweltering sands of North Africa, this region has posed a major challenge to missionary ministry. A variety of religions and age-old traditions dominate people’s lives, resulting in formidable resistance to the gospel. Yet woven in every city, village and nomadic dwelling is one common thread: people are hungry for truth.

When the Assemblies of God was established in 1914, several missionaries were already serving as missionaries in Eurasia. Others who sensed God’s leading soon joined them. By building relationships, addressing physical needs, and training national believers, the church took root.

Today, traditional methods of evangelism are not possible in much of Eurasia because of cultural or government restrictions. In response to the challenges, missionaries are exploring other opportunities to establish a presence and model Christian principles. National fellowships are catching a vision for the lost of their nations and are setting goals for church planting in unreached areas. As a result, teams of believers are sharing the gospel among people groups that have never heard the name of Jesus. Even in areas where access to the gospel is severely limited, God is opening doors to reach those who are spiritually seeking.
