With love and respect inviting all Muslim peoples to follow Jesus

Read More

The majority of the world's 1.7 billion Muslims have never met a follower of Christ, and there are still hundreds of Muslim people groups with little or no access to the gospel. However, God is doing extraordinary things in the Muslim world in our day. In the last two decades, far more Muslims have come to faith in Jesus than in the previous 14 centuries since Islam began. This is an amazing season of opportunity.

Frontiers is a culturally diverse, all age movement of over a thousand workers representing 50 nationalities on more than 200 teams. Our teams live and work amongst their host communities in over 50 Muslim countries, prioritising the peoples and places with least access to the gospel.

We desire to see disciples of Jesus gathering and multiplying among all Muslim peoples.

We value working closely with UK churches to raise up, equip and support workers to join teams for the great harvest that is beginning in the Muslim world.

We are non-denominational and our workers come from a wide variety of churches in the evangelical tradition. Each Frontiers worker must be in agreement with our Statement of faith.

The Frontiers difference:

Mosque Icon
Muslims

Nearly one-quarter of the world's population is Muslim and the majority have never met a follower of Jesus. Our focus is on living amongst Muslims in places where no-one has previously made Jesus' love known.

Movements Icon
Movements

Everything we do contributes toward planting healthy, reproducing churches through teams of obedient disciples who produce other disciples in the Muslim world.

Grace Icon
Grace-filled

We are united in our commitment to live by Biblical truths, but seek to be gracious in embracing diversity. Read our Statement of faith

Team Icon
Teams

Like-minded people united in a common vision can achieve a lot more than individuals. Teams offer mutual support and complementary gifts - it is the only way we work.

Field Led Icon
Field-led

Our approach is field-led. Team leaders make decisions for their own context and, collectively, for the organisation.

Growth Icon
Eager for coaching and accountability

We place a high emphasis on training, mentoring and accountability provided by people with hands-on experience.

    India

    There are more urban poor in India than in any other nation and 1 in every 6 urban Indians lives in a slum. Earlier this year a group of Frontiers workers spent several days in the mega-city of Mumbai, visiting urban slums like Dharavi (the setting for the film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’) with a population of over 1 million people, and praying for more workers for this harvest field. You can get a brief insight of what life is like for the people of Dharavi in this short YouTube clip here.

    Surprisingly our overall impression was not one of despair or desperation, despite the living conditions, but of the warm welcome we received wherever we went, the smiles on the faces of the children and the industry of the people running the street stalls, shops and workshops which were found everywhere. Yet it was impossible to ignore the conditions people were living in, the exploitation of the weakest and the absence of awareness of a God who loves them and gave his life for them.

    • Pray for Indian Muslims living and working in the slums of Mumbai and other cities, that they would be blessed.

    • Pray for Christian workers, including Frontiers teams, to share the hope that is in Christ with poor urban Muslims in India.

    • Pray for children and young people in these neighbourhoods, that they would have the opportunity to hear the good news that God cares for them.

    An overview of the Urban Poor

    The urban poor comprise one of the biggest and fastest growing sectors of society across much of the globe, particularly in Africa and Asia where most Muslims live. Although accurate figures are hard to come by, one estimate is that there are already more than 250 million Muslims living in slums, shanty towns and poor urban neighbourhoods across the world; a number which will grow rapidly in the coming decades.

    Christian workers in poor urban neighbourhoods often report an openness to the gospel. Many of the urban poor experience deep insecurity in their day-to-day lives, as even those things that are considered to be a basic human right, such as decent housing, jobs, education and medical provision are not guaranteed. As they face this insecurity without the support structures they have relied on in their home villages, they can become receptive to new ideas and to joining new communities, such as those Jesus came to establish.

    Listen to the song ‘You’re the God of this City’ by Chris Tomlin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d61LamkXfwk and pray:

    • For the millions of Muslims living in city slums, that Jesus indeed would become their Lord.

    • For the millions more who will join them in the cities in the coming decades.

    • For many more workers to go and preach the good news in poor urban Muslim neighbourhoods.

    • For many new communities of Christ-followers to be established.

    Different people groups in the UAE and Arab Gulf

    “Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and growing - as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth, just as you learned it from Epaphras our beloved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf and has made known to us your love in the Spirit.” Col 1:5-8

    The Arab people are the main indigenous group in this region. They are the original Arab Bedouins of the desert. Mohammad, the founder of Islam, was from this people group. However, there are minority people groups as well. They include:

    Zanzibari Omanis: Swahili-speaking Omanis who have roots in Zanzibar, Tanzania in East Africa, since Oman ruled there during the 19th century.

    Baluchi people: The Baluchi people come from Pakistan and surrounding areas. Some have mixed in with the local Arabs and have been there for generations.

    Mahri people: They live in Yemen and Oman, straddling areas near the border of the two countries. They speak their own language which is distinct from Arabic.

    Jebeli people: These are mountain peoples from the mountains of Salalah, Oman. They too have their own distinct language and culture.

    Shuhooh Arabs: The Shuhooh are one of the Arab tribes in the UAE and the Musandam Peninsula, Oman. They are known as mountain peoples who speak a distinct dialect of Arabic.

    You can watch a short 2-minute clip about the Shuhooh of the UAE here.

    Today, of the 43 people groups in the United Arab Emirates, 25 remain unreached by the gospel and many of them are illiterate.

    • Let’s pray that the word of truth would go out to all the people groups of the region. May it transform lives among the Zanzibari Omanis, the Baluchi, the Mahri, the Jebeli, the Shuhooh and the Arab Bedouins.

    • We also ask for many (like Epaphras in the verse above) to come out of these people groups to reach their own, to be ‘faithful ministers of Christ’.

    • Let’s pray for great tribal and people group movements to Christ.

    • Social media and the internet are a great means of reaching people with the Good News there. Let’s pray that many will come across Christian material and be curious to know more.

    Outreach – stories from the UAE

    Another worker in this country shared the following:

    “It can be challenging to have meaningful interactions with the local population. People live quite private lives and, although generally warm and friendly when you engage with them, they don’t initially appear very approachable. More than ever, we feel that we need to be very intentional with our time. A great opportunity for this presented itself recently.

    There was a small sign erected in our neighbourhood giving directions to a funeral. Last year we learned that in the local culture it is an expectation that all the men from a neighbourhood will attend a funeral and pay their respects, even if they don’t know the family personally. So, it was with a certain amount of nerves that I walked up to the huge tent erected in front of an even larger house a few blocks away from where we live. After the burial the “Azaa” takes place at a hall or often in a tent near the family home. It’s three days for the men and one for the women and it’s actually very simple. On entering the tent each guest must personally greet every other guest and give condolences to the close relatives of the deceased. There is often a simple meal shared by all of the guests.

    I received a warm welcome, greeting everyone and was able to chat with a few local people before sitting with the eldest son of the deceased. Although nothing tangible came from the evening, it felt very significant to be at a community event, to greet people and hopefully introduce myself as a God-fearing person.

    We would love prayer for more opportunities like this.”

    • Let’s pray for more opportunities to build relationships with the local population and for conversations that lead to kingdom fruit.

    • Please pray for local people who want to gather their friends and family to read the Bible.

    • Pray for this family to continue to be recognised as spiritual, God-fearing and grace-filled people in this community and to establish a sustainable rhythm of life.

    Outreach – stories from the UAE

    A family working with Frontiers in the UAE sent a very encouraging newsletter, some of which we would like to share with you here.

    “We have recently had the privilege of sharing the gospel with some that had never heard it and we continue to do this with a family that that we have been chatting with for quite some time. This can be until 4am in the morning when children are finally in bed and phones stop buzzing, so that adults can finally have the time to sit and listen!

    The family have experienced some of the Father’s love for them and are growing in their understanding of who Jesus is. They wanted us to go through passages in the Bible where Jesus declares who he is. We wanted Jesus’ words and actions in each passage to speak powerfully into this. We shared some of the stories in the gospels including the one where Jesus healed the man blind from birth and where the paralysed man was lowered through the roof. We studied the stories in depth, looking at the reactions of those around them, of the religious leaders, and it was so interesting and beautiful to share together genuine revelations from these stories. The patriarch of the family said that what stood out for him, was that everyone wanted to make an excuse to suggest the men had not been healed.

    They have asked us to continue to do more studies with them. This family is really hungry for more.”

    • Let’s pray for the patriarch of this family, that he will not find any excuse to avoid the significance of who Jesus is.

    • Pray for this family and many others in this country to experience Jesus for themselves, becoming disciples and disciple-makers.

    • Let’s pray for our workers as they share gospel truths and build a relationship with this family and others, that they would have great wisdom in what and in how they share and pray.

    “but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:14

    After 40 years of outreach in the UAE, there are only a few known believers there. However, workers in the region report that as they intentionally pray, they are seeing changes. Many of the Gulf States that were previously untouched are now seeing movements to Christ – large numbers coming to faith after many years of prayer with seemingly little fruit.

    In the age of the easy, the entitled and the instant, an expectation in the UAE and throughout the region, it is hard to see how people have any need for an intimate God. However, as the cost of living increases and families and children suffer from the effects of modern living – anxiety, depression, diabetes – an easy life often leads to sin and the consequence can be family chaos and divorce. Easy and instant don’t offer much hope.

    A couple of field workers wrote to say that during some of their prayer drives, they had been so saddened by a sense of hopelessness felt by many living there. Despite seemingly having everything, such material wealth and the promises of spiritual fulfilment and purpose in Islam, they have no hope without knowledge of the One who came to save.

    Workers said they cannot overstate the importance of prayer for this land. “This is a crucial time, where the message of the gospel really matters. It is a gospel of power, not just words. We are expectant, waiting for a move of the Spirit and praying to this end.”

    The first missionary came to the UAE in the 1960’s and his son, who recently visited, was incredibly encouraged at the perceived openness of locals to prayer compared to the time he had lived there with his parents. We thank God for this.

    • Let’s join in prayer with others across this land and region, for a move of the Spirit and for a harvest for the kingdom of God.

    • Let’s pray that Muslim men would find Jesus in this desert land and that women, who are often at home all day, would meet with Jesus there.

    • Ask that they will learn that Jesus Christ is the “Water of Life” and go to him to drink and live!

    • Let’s pray for our workers who can easily be discouraged, to rise up and know that God is with them and for them. Let’s ask for perseverance and resilience for them.
