Kabardian in Syria

The Kabardians are a tribe from the northwestern Caucasus region. Their largest populations are found in Russia and Turkey. Kabardians are almost all Muslim; however, previous traditions persist, such as venerating sacred trees and following the khabze, their book of proverbs concerning social customs. Before they converted to Islam, they practiced a form of Christianity which also had some syncretistic characteristics. Today there are little to no known Christians among them. 

Engagement // What’s Happening Now

Global Initiative conducted a seminar in the Caucasus region which focused on sharing the gospel with Muslims. Among the 50 students at the seminar were Syrian Christians. Pray for the people at the training seminar that God will use them to reach Kabardians in the Caucasus region and in Syria. Pray for Global Initiative as they continue to train believers across the globe to share the gospel with Muslims. Learn more on their website.

Problem Solvers

Live Dead is planting churches throughout the Arab World, as well as bring believers together in prayer for these churches. Live Dead organizes specific prayer teams of three people each per church plant. Consider giving time to pray for church planting efforts in the Middle East.

Partnership // Move Beyond
  • Pray God sends workers to plant churches in Kabardian villages.
  • Pray God opens the hearts of Kabardians to receive the gospel.
  • Pray the Holy Spirit empowers Syrian believers to boldly proclaim the gospel to Kabardian people.
