Edward Ayub / Presbyterian Church of Bangladesh
Bangladesh is not only the fourth largest Muslim country in the world, it is also home to a growing community of Christians, including the Presbyterian Church of Bangladesh (PCB). Pastor Edward Ayub helps provide leadership to the PCB, and his passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and church planting is contagious. Born into a Muslim home, drawn to Christ through the self-sacrificing testimony of Asian believers, trained in theology and working within the Christian community in Bangladesh, Ayub has a simple vision: to establish a church planting movement among the Muslim peoples of his homeland. To date, several churches have been started, all led by national pastors.
Planting biblical, vibrant and indigenous churches is the primary ministry of the Presbyterian Church in Bangladesh. Other ministries that support this vision include:
North Africa Supported Missionary
- Promotion of law, justice and human rights among persecuted minority groups
- Training and support of national pastors
- Mercy ministries to respond to natural disasters and health care needs
- Community service through starting schools in impoverished areas
The identity of these missionaries are kept confidential for security and safety reasons. These missionaries have worked in Western Europe and most recently in North Africa in order to establish multicultural church plants, minister to mercy needs of the community, and to recruit others to help with the exciting work in this region of the world.
