Muslim Background

Reach Muslim-Background People in Vienna

Vienna is a melting-pot of cultures, languages, spirituality and people-groups. The Muslim population, currently about 10% of Vienna’s population, is growing fast.

One of the unreached people-groups of Vienna are the Albanian speaking immigrants. Having fled their home due to war or poverty, they hold on to the one thing they have; Islam. We have a small team with big demands; to reach out to these people with God’s love and his call to accept Jesus for salvation. We currently have a couple working specifically with Albanian-speakers who would value more workers.

There are other Muslims, too, with different backgrounds: Immigrants from Turkey, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, and the list goes on. What they do have in common, though, is the need to hear the message of Jesus in a way that they can understand and accept.

We’d love those with a heart to reach Muslims to help fill a need here and talk with us about how they could join us. Are you one of them?

Church Planting Movement (CPM) - Marseille, France

Pioneers in Europe is praying for two Church Planting (CPM) teams in Marseille in the Southern PACA region of France. There is a need for a dynamic team of culturally and ethnically diverse individuals who will focus on CPM among the Muslim populations in the hard places in and around Marseille. These teams would work within the context of an existing fellowship of French Evangelical churches to reach Muslims for Christ and to see churches begun among these populations. These would include recent immigrants to French of ethnic origin and Muslim background.

These teams will require excellent French and Arabic language/culture skills and/or intensive training. 

Is God calling you to be a light in Marseille, France?

Belgium Bruxelles/Liege - Church Planting Among Muslim Background People

Pioneers in Europe is praying for at least two church planting teams (CPM) to reach out to the Muslim background populations in urban areas.  These teams would work within the context of an existing fellowship of Belgian Evangelical churches to reach Muslims for Christ and to see churches begun among these populations.   

Do you have a vision to see Muslims reached for the Kingdom?  

This will require excellent French and Arabic language/culture skills and/or intensive language training.

Nice, France - ESL or French Literacy Outreach for Muslim Background Peoples

Most people around the world think of Nice as a glamorous beach vacation destination, home to mansions, yachts, and movie stars.  But Nice is also home to a significant Muslim population (France has the largest percentage of Muslims as compared to their total population in the EU). Nice is the second largest French city on the Mediterranean, after Marseilles, which is the most Muslim French city with a 20% Muslim population.  The Joshua Project says that Nice is a “formerly or falsely reached” city.  

Pioneers has a team working with Muslim background peoples in Nice, and they are currently looking for new team members to help them reach out to this community through teaching English and French, as well as initiating friendships and Discovery Bible Studies in the community. 

Smiling Upon the Ismailis

A marginalised and often overlooked Islamic sect, the Shia Ismaili Muslims have their roots in North Africa, the Persian world, and India and are moving into western Europe. They have adopted London as one of their modern heartlands, home to a majority of the 14,000 Ismailis in the UK and featuring one of only 6 worldwide Ismaili centers and also their academic base, the Institute of Ismaili Studies. They have a public presence and well-established community…what they need is the Gospel. Are you being called to join those who have a vision to see the unreached Ismailis encounter the living Christ?

Muslim Background Outreach

The Republic of Ireland (ROI) is the least-evangelized nation in the English-speaking world. As a result, it is perhaps no surprise that the various unreached immigrant populations who have made Ireland their home continue to remain unreached. The Catholic Church, though present in the culture and community, does little to intentionally engage the nations of the earth that God has brought to their doorstep.

More than half of the Muslims living in Ireland reside in Dublin; a community of 35,000 people have made their home in a city with a historical Christian heritage but are completely unengaged with the Gospel. Although there are churches and individuals burdened to reach out to them, what Dublin needs is a full-time missionary team to catalyze, partner, and engage these communities. Are you being called to help bring the Gospel back to the land of St. Patrick?

Street Art in Paris Suburbs

Tilleuls' is the name of the neighborhood. Most everyone here comes from elsewhere - North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian Subcontinent... "I come from where I am loved" is a French rap line. Come share the love of Jesus and the hope of reaching His eternal home..."

Muslim Background Outreach

11% of French are muslims and Islam is the second most practiced religion in France - after atheism (63%).  There have been numerous, and sadly failed, attempts to integrate north african and Arab populations into french society.  Could the answer to France’s desire for integration only be achieved in Jesus, where there is, “no greek, jew, slave or free?”  We are in desperate need for ‘ministers of reconciliation’ who will reconcile muslims first to God and then to others.

Is God leading you to engage this unreached people group? If so, prayerfully consider joining our team.
