Where We Work
Currently Take Heart serves in Egypt, Iraq, Syria, and Nigeria; some of the most dangerous places for Christians in the world. The Open Doors 2022 World Watch List ranked Egypt 20th, Iraq 14th, Syria 15th, and Nigeria 7th in the top 50 countries where it is most difficult to follow Jesus. As our team and resources grow, we hope our work reaches more persecuted Christians in communities around the world.
Take Heart partners with local leaders in some of the most persecuted areas, seeking opportunities for development. We refuse to be a handout or a crutch. That’s why we come alongside villages for three years and local partners for five. We train them. We equip them. We encourage them. And we ensure when our time is complete, each partner can keep going, fully equipped to serve the Christians in their communities. It’s all about sustainability.
