Chad became independent from France in 1960. Since then, its politics have been characterised by violence, coups and insurgencies. It is a secular state with freedom of religion. Muslims are dominant in government, trade and the army, although they are only just the majority religion (approx 53%).

AIM began work in Chad in 1987, following 25 years of turmoil since its independence and at a time when war, once again, was escalating. The work began alongside other mission agencies who’d formed a cooperative fellowship linked with the Eglise Evangelique au Tchad (EET). Four and a half years on AIM reported 181 peoples in Chad, speaking 135 languages. Of these peoples 115 lacked a church.

Today there are still 73 unreached people groups in Chad. That’s around 6,898,000 people who currently have no opportunity to hear the gospel. AIM offer many opportunities to serve in Chad, across a wide spectrum of ministries. Whether you are called to work amongst unreached people groups, or support mission through caring for mission partner’s children, could you be part of our work as we long to see Christ-centred churches across Chad?
