ICC Supports Outreach Efforts in Turkey

05/09/2019 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Youth and young adult ministry is heavily regulated in Turkey and strongly discour­aged by President Erdogan’s government. Turkish youth are denied the opportunity to think beyond Islam, and are put at risk if exposed to the Gospel.

Mehmet and Ceyda, Muslim-background believers, lead a college outreach ministry. They are uniquely positioned to reach out to students hungry for the Gospel. The couple currently serves nine campuses and are ministering to 100 new students this year. Because of the plunge of Turkish currency following the controversy with Pastor Andrew Brunson’s imprisonment, the couple’s finances have taken a significant hit. To help alleviate this burden, ICC pro­vided financial aid to Mehmet and Ceyda’s ministry as they continue to impact the lives of Turkey’s Christian youth.

They shared, “We are excited for 2019, and we are hoping to see the Lord do wonderful things this year as we continue to serve Him with all of our hearts.”
