Azerbaijanis need Jesus.
According to Joshua Project, Azerbaijanis are one of the 50 largest unreached people groups in the world. Now more than ever, Azerbaijani people worldwide need to know that God answers prayers, and the answer He gives is Jesus Messiah.
Join us as we pray for God to move.
Azerbaijanis are a Muslim-background people of about 40 million. They are concentrated in the Caspian Sea region in northwest Iran and Azerbaijan. With less than 2% as known followers of Jesus, they are considered one of the world's largest unreached people groups.
Their roots are in the Caucasus Mountains. Their language is a Turkic language. And their history is intertwined with Persians and Russians. So as they are reached with the Gospel, they have high potential for reaching others throughout Central Asia and the Middle East.
