Affiliations and accreditations

MEC believes Christians are called to stand with those who are persecuted.

MEC was founded in 1991, in response to needs expressed by Christian leaders in the Middle East and North Africa region. 

Persecution takes many forms – from oppression and discrimination to denial of constitutional and internationally acknowledged freedoms. For centuries Christians in the Middle East and North Africa have been discriminated against, marginalised, detained, imprisoned, tortured and even killed for their faith in Jesus Christ.

Christians are called not only to expect persecution but also to fight injustice. MEC works with churches and community leaders to monitor persecution and discrimination. On the request of local church leadership, MEC provides support by: assisting victims of persecution, challenging unjust laws, policies and attitudes, equipping Christians to face persecution.
