WEST AFRICA MUSLIM MINISTRY

West Africa, a diverse region of 18 nations and around 350 million people, stretches from the arid Sahel in the north to the forests and coastlands in the south to the Lake Chad basin in the east. Historically, West Africa has been a point of cultural convergence: sub-Saharan African people groups, a thousand years of interactions with Muslim Arab merchants from the north, and hundreds of years of trade and imperial expansion by Portuguese, Dutch, English, French, and Americans. All told, West Africa today presents a complex mosaic of remarkable ethnic, cultural, religious, and linguistic diversity.

Though Islam and animism are the predominant religions in West Africa, God is on the move. MTW has several teams throughout the region—reaching unreached tribal groups, training and equipping local believers, planting sustainable churches, and advancing mercy ministries with children, the vulnerable, and the poor. In a region long dominated by Islam, MTW is committed to pursuing gospel-centered ministry and kingdom transformation.
