Where We Serve

Where We Serve

The Arab and Muslim worlds are in an area known geographically as the 10/40 window. Countries in this window have the least evangelized populations.

BMI regards the Arab world as its main mission field, but it also has significant activity in North America.

The Arab World:

95% of more than 400 million people living in the Arab world are Muslims. They reside in 22 countries with Arabic as their official language. The remaining 5% are mostly nominal Christians, constituting between 12 to 15 million people. BMI outreaches both groups equally with the Gospel.

We partner tightly with national pastors and missionaries who are focusing on discipleship and Church planting efforts.
