History

Since its inception, SRG resource partners have provided nearly $300 million to equip more than 450 ministries and churches to share the gospel with millions of people throughout the Greater Middle East, including Pakistan and Afghanistan. This region is the heartland of Islam, with a population of more than 876 million persons, the vast majority of whom are Muslims. Moreover, it is one of the most under-resourced and least evangelized regions of the world, receiving less than an estimated one percent of all North American Protestant international giving. While experienced ministries recognize significant openness to the gospel, the region remains difficult -- 18 of the 23 countries SRG serves are countries where Christians face "very high" or "extreme" levels of persecution (Open Doors, 2023).
