Our Work

Reaching Dangerous Places

In recent years, READ Ministries has found new ministry opportunities in the five Central Asian republics. Islam is dominant in each of these republics, and several are entirely opposed to the Christian faith. That fact makes it a dangerous place to be a follower of Jesus Christ or an outsider seeking to assist and support them.

Despite the resistance to Christianity, the church in this region is growing by leaps and bounds, with the most persecuted areas growing the fastest. But for them to grow in faith and knowledge, they need our help. Central Asian church leaders need sound theological resources to teach and disciple these brave Christian people who want to worship the God-of-the-Bible and not the Muslim faith.

In the republics that are most opposed to the Christian faith, READ cannot provide Christian books. Such materials are confiscated and destroyed, putting believers at risk of fines or imprisonment. In response, READ has developed electronic libraries more easily distributed. These electronic libraries are difficult to detect and harder to confiscate while still providing much needed theological tools for study and ministry.

READ is currently supporting 46 church leaders in underground ministry training programs. There is a great need here.


Your partnership with READ will make a significant difference for a group of people desperate for what is so readily available in the U.S.

Please consider partnering with READ in support of these brave Christians in Central Asia.
