Central Asia Study Center
In 1991 agencies focusing on Central Asian Muslims launched a specialized training program in a Muslim city overseas. It has stressed on-location, hands-on preparation. Participants are involved in language study, learn unique dimensions of Central Asian Islam, and grapple firsthand with ministry in a controlled setting. Sponsoring agencies are Operation Mobilization, Cooperative Services International/CAFE, Frontiers-Canada, People International, WEC, Youth With A Mission, Assemblies of God Division of Foreign Mission, Bethany Fellowship Mission, and the Samuel Zwemer Institute which manages the Center.
The program is designed for people planning to invest more than one year in ministry in Central Asia. Three 10-week sessions are conducted each year. To date, CASC has served more than 120 missionaries. 1995 sessions are scheduled to begin in March, August, and November. Contact:
