Reaching Frontier People Groups in Morocco

When the first American missionaries reached Morocco in 1895, they discovered a challenging mission field. Now, more than 125 years later, the soil of Moroccan hearts remains tough.

Morocco, a North African country that’s home to 37 million people, is also home to 24 Frontier People Groups (FPG), according to Joshua Project. It defines an FPG as “an Unreached People Group with 0.1 percent or fewer Christians of any kind, and no evidence of a self-sustaining Gospel movement.”

Most Moroccans seem content with Islam’s convincing proverbs and entrenched teachings from the Qur’an. Islam is Morocco’s state religion, but the country’s constitution grants people freedom of thought, expression, and assembly—freedoms that can be rare in other Islamic nations.

Christian workers in Morocco see signs that Isaiah’s prophecy is being fulfilled today: “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned” (Isaiah 9:2).

More workers are needed in these hard mission fields because God wants people in Morocco’s 24 FPGs to know Him. As we labor in prayer for those living in darkness, may the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ shine brightly on them.

Pray that God will send more laborers to minister to Moroccans.

  • Ask God to lift the veil from their eyes as they hear about Jesus.
  • Pray for people in the 24 FPGs in the Joshua Project database.
  • Ask God to encourage missionary families serving among Moroccans and to give them a deep sense of His presence.
  • Pray for an Acts 6:7 moment to take place among Moroccan Imams and Muslims.
