A Central Asian Mission

People International Canada is making a difference in the everyday lives of Central Asians, both believers and those who have yet to know Jesus as Lord.


We are committed and passionate about sharing the good news of the gospel through presenting Jesus Christ in a culturally sensitive manner. This involves learning Central Asian languages and re-telling the biblical narrative in creative ways.

Church Planting

PI’s vision is to see churches grow in every community. We support national-led church planting, and as needed, we pioneer new churches.

Discipleship & Leadership Development

Central Asia has a small but vibrant Church that is growing in the hostile environment of persecution. We are involved in supporting the Central Asian Church by training leaders to teach from the Bible and develop Biblical leadership patterns, as well as developing areas of pastoral care and developing Christian character.

Bible Translation

People International workers are involved in translation teams throughout Central Asia, ensuring that the Bible is available in every language.


PI is committed to using various forms of media to reach local people. The gospel is being presented through various forms of technology and multimedia (such as Satellite TV, mobile apps, and short films). 

Meeting Human Needs

We carry the biblical mandate to serve the poor and vulnerable. We help create employment and have provided emergency relief to refugees. 

Get Involved

Does knowing that Central Asia is one of the largest unreached regions in the world overwhelm you or challenge you to action?

There is a great need for prayer, resources and Christian workers. You can get involved with People International through prayer, financial support, or serving.

I want to participate in what God is doing in Central Asia!

Scholarship Fund

Fountain of Hope

Fountain of Life, located in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, purposes is to provide holistic care (physical, emotional, spiritual) to the homeless of Bishkek.

Turkey Relief Fund

“One month has now passed since the 7.7 and 7.6 magnitude earthquakes in Kahramanmaraş, which impacted everyone deeply. The official loss of life announced as of now is 45,968, with more than 100,000 Turks injured.”

This is from a recent report of a believing Turk who is on the front lines, helping with the earthquake recovery. 

We are partnering with another agency to help provide all-weather temporary housing to a remote village in Turkey where a minority ethnic group live. If you would still like to help provide more housing for those impacted by the February earthquake, we can ensure that all funds are used for this purpose. The project cost to provide the materials for one temporary home is $1370 CAD (this includes insulated flooring for each shelter, materials to make the shelters, and the shipping cost to send the materials to the remote village). 

Our mandate at People International Canada is to gather funds to channel into recovery efforts. Not just today, but in the coming months. Will you consider making a donation today?
