About Middle East

WEC serves communities across the Middle East, and has had teams working in some countries for decades.

WEC teams are involved in a variety of ministries, using tent-making, medical work, missional business to do effective and culturally appropriate outreach leading to church planting. We also serve alongside other Christian agencies, and with the local church where it exists.

Our desire is to see all the peoples of this region come to faith in Jesus, gathered into indigenous communities of believers, serving and joining the work of sharing the good news.

We cannot give details online about the countries, situations and opportunities we have found where you can serve in the Middle East region, but we will be able to tell you more when you meet us face to face.
