A ministry looks for leadership in a Central Asian country.

By October 31, 2005

Kazakhstan (MNN)–Christian work in Kazakhstan can be challenging because of the government’s crackdown on minority religions.

This is especially true since Kazakhstan’s president signed into law a harsh new code this July. Mission groups are concerned because the legislation is so broad that it allows religious groups to be punished for almost any alleged offense.

In addition, the persecution that exists makes it hard to disciple new believers. Enforcement of the new code has been swift and hard in some areas.

Yet, in spite of the difficulty of ministry in Kazakhstan, Young Life continues work there. They are currently looking for someone to lead the existing team in central Asia.

Their mission is introducing young people to Jesus Christ and helping them grow in their faith.
