MENA & South Asia

A missional network of church planters and church-planting churches across the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia for the glory of Jesus.


Acts 29 MENA & South Asia is a network of churches and church planters, ministering in the fertile soil where Christians first proclaimed the name of Jesus and took the good news of the gospel to the nations. Today, there are few churches in these places. Some Christians face severe persecution, others are under-resourced in the face of incredible need. Acts 29 MENA is working to establish a network of churches partnering to plant churches, train pastors and leaders, and encourage one another to press on in obedience to the Great Commission. We offer assessment and support for church planters and a relational and collaborative network for existing churches. Join us to plant healthy, gospel-centered churches, making disciples across the Middle East, North Africa, and India!
