First Tunisian Evangelicals Ordained in 800 Years

In the 1200s the Al-Muwaḥḥidun expelled or killed the Christians in Tunisia. We have no record of Tunisian Evangelicals being ordained again until 2012.

Tunisia was the home of some of the church fathers such as Cyprian and Tertullian. It was also the home of the Phonecian navy and a great center of worship of Baal and Ashteroth.
God has now opened the door in Tunisia for the spreading of the gospel and more are coming to Christ than ever. This brings many opportunities for discipleship training, more, I am told, than our Tunisian brothers and sisters can handle.

In spite of the open doors, Tunisia is still a dangerous place to live as an outspoken Christian who seeks to win others to Christ. Let’s pray for the safety of our brothers and sisters in Tunisia and pray about what we can do to strenghten the church in that dark land.
