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!

Help Send Timothy to School

Timothy was born in Afghanistan. He is 7 years old. His parents fled the country when he was a toddler and he has been living in Central Asia ever since. Timothy’s parents have not been able to get refugee status from the local authorities; at present they have short-term temporary papers. As a consequence, Timothy’s parents are not permitted to work. Without refugee status it is also difficult to get Timothy into a local school. He does not speak any of the local languages. 

In the long run, Timothy and his family hope to be accepted as refugees and move to an English-speaking country. Timothy has already learned some English through watching cartoons on the internet. He is quiet and lacks opportunities for social interaction with other children. He has a younger brother who is 2 years old. 

Timothy’s family have been part of a PI worker’s church family for the last 18 months. They are in regular contact with them. 

Our desire is to raise funds for Timothy to attend an international English speaking school. This will prepare him well for the future.

We invite you to help partner with us to send Timothy to school in January (his first semester is being covered by another source). A friend of People International Canada has offered to match any gifts up to $1200. Please consider what you might do to help send Timothy back to school. Please indicate separately that the gift is for Timothy. 

Our goal by January 31, 2023 is to raise the full $2400 (CDN) needed.
