What the Diverse People Groups of Eurasia Have in Common

If you’re new to being a part of the Eurasia community, we are so glad you’re here!

Maybe you found us on Instagram, or saw a link a friend shared. Maybe you visited our booth at General Council in August. But however you found us, thanks for sticking around.

If you haven’t been part of the community for long, you may be wondering exactly where Eurasia is. What countries does our church-planting goal include?

“Eurasia” can be a confusing word. It can mean the entire European/Asian continental mass, but in our case, we’re talking about that in-between area where you’re not in Western Europe but not quite in Eastern Asia, either.

If this has you imagining the Middle East, you’d be partly right. But Eurasia is a whole lot more than the countries you’re probably imagining. The Eurasia region stretches out in all four directions from the cradle of civilization.

Euraisia includes the Holy Land, Mediterranean nations, like Turkey and Egypt, former Soviet Bloc countries like Georgia and Estonia, big nations with unique needs like Russia and India, and of course, Middle Eastern nations like Iran and Iraq. You can see exactly which country the seven areas of Eurasia include here.

These countries include a vast variety of cultures. There are urban areas and rural areas, riches and extreme poverty, and encompasses countries that follow many major world religions– Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism.

But despite their differences, what these countries have in common is their great need for Jesus. We are here to help support and connect anyone (on any continent) who is in some way supporting our dream to see church-planting movements in every people group across this vast region.

So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being part of the Eurasia Community. We couldn’t do this without YOU.
