Mission Eurasia works in Georgia and the other countries of Eurasia to train and equip young Christian leaders for effective ministry.

After the Soviet Union dissolved, democratic reform in newly independent Georgia seemed promising. However, corruption, inter-ethnic conflict, and external political conflict hindered progress and perpetuated unrest. In 2008, Russia attacked and invaded Georgia in support of breakaway movements in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, two disputed provinces. Hundreds of lives were lost and roughly 200,000 were displaced. To this day, Russia maintains a regional military presence, political pressure, and support of the breakaway territories.

Economically, Georgia has a healthy relationship with the European Union (EU), even applying for membership in 2022. However, worldwide COVID-19 restrictions stifled tourism, transportation, and construction. Georgia’s parliament also considered a bill in March 2023 that classified organizations receiving foreign funding as “foreign agents”—mimicking oppressive laws from Russia and other oppressive countries. Naturally, it was met with protest and failed, but it remains a looming question and could affect Georgia’s EU bid.

While Georgia’s constitution protects religious liberty, it is unequally applied. Though Georgia is roughly 80 percent Christian, the vast majority belong to the Georgian Orthodox Church—more of an influential political and cultural institution than a spiritual one. Only 1.35 percent of Christians are evangelical. The remaining population consists of less than 10 percent each of Muslims and non-religious, and less than one percent of other religions. The Georgian Orthodox Church enjoys significant public benefits while non-Orthodox communities face discrimination by way of illegal censorship, building permit rejections, historical property disputes, suppression of celebrations, and obstacles or outright bans against training clergy. Other harassment against non-Orthodox communities often goes unpunished.

With that said, our SWW has huge potential to break through with the gospel. In 2023, you supported our SWW ministry training for 95 enrolled leaders, 29 of whom graduated from the full two-year program. Despite the challenges in their nation’s religious freedom landscape, these young leaders are bringing the hope of Christ to their countrymen.

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.”

1 Peter 4:10–11

Help Open Doors for the Gospel in Georgia

For decades, unrest and conflict have plagued the people of Georgia. Yet, these struggles have only led to a greater openness to the gospel.
Help train more Next Generation leaders who can impact Georgia with the gospel during these days of opportunity.

Prayer Requests

  • Please pray for Mission Eurasia’s outreach to young people in Georgia who are growing up in an environment of political instability and unrest. Pray for strategic wisdom as our leaders strive to reach them in the most effective way.
  •  Please pray that our new SWW leader in Georgia will become well-grounded and abundantly blessed as he guides the program and pours into the lives of the students.

  •  Please pray that God would prosper our plans to establish new SWW centers throughout Georgia.


“My name is Tatyana, I am 38 years old, and I live in Georgia. I came to know Jesus at 32 and was baptized at 33. I used to suffer from one sin in particular, and it tormented me. I cried a lot trying to get rid of it. It was smoking. I tried everything in my own strength to stop, and one day, with tears, I began asking God to help me and save me from this guilt. Suddenly, I felt the touch of Jesus and His kind, loving look. From that day on, I couldn't smoke anymore.

“I met a woman who went to an evangelical church, and I started going there too. That’s when I gave my heart and my life to Christ. That was six years ago. I was invited to study at School Without Walls (SWW). I remember one of the first courses where we learned about the talents (gifts) God gives us to use in serving others. That session meant so much to me! I really liked the speaker's examples—of how she shared the gospel with people, and how she brought Christ into the lives of others. It touched me very much because I didn't know how to talk about salvation through Christ to those around me. SWW changed my life because I realized how patient I need to be with non-believers and how much love I need to show them.

“I realized my purpose and how I can serve other people. I realized that I could support people and listen to them, and by doing so, people opened to me easily. I realized that I have so many people around me to talk to about Jesus. And I used to think that I didn't have anyone with whom to share the Lord! Now I can freely share God's Word with my neighbors, and now I also have the boldness to share the gospel with my sister, mother, and other family members, which, for me, was hard before. Thank you for the SWW through which God showed me my gift in evangelism.”
