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 language and re-telling the biblical narrative in creative ways. Our goal is diverse and effective outreach.

Church Planting

PI’s vision is to see churches grow in every community. We support national-led church planting, and as necessary, 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 (satellite TV, mobile apps, short films).

Meeting Human Needs

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

40 Years of Service

This is the 40th year of People International serving in Central Asia and among Central Asians. To commemorate this, we want to challenge you to consider a one-time gift of $40 toward our scholarship fund that will help send a new worker to the field.

100 people giving $40 would result in $4000 to help a new worker get established in Central Asia.

Please consider celebrating our 40 years of ministry by partnering with us to help establish a scholarship fund to send the next generation to serve in greater Central Asia.
