Introduction / History

The Arab Diaspora is the Arab population who live outside of North Africa and the Middle East. Algerian Arabs are among them, and some now make the Netherlands their home. Most fled poverty and repression in Algeria to live in the peaceful, prosperous Netherlands.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Most Algerian Arabs continue to speak Algerian Arabic at home and Dutch with those outside their household. The majority are taking advantage of the European education system to improve their lives and the future of their children. Many hold low paying jobs, but a small number are professional athletes and musicians in the Netherlands.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Algerian Arabs are almost entirely Sunni Muslims. The few Algerians who have accepted the salvation of Christ are almost all from the Berber tribes. A central part of the Algerian Arab's identity is in being Muslim, even though they are known to seek non-Islamic spiritual answers when grappling with a practical need like illnesses.


What Are Their Needs?

Algerian Arabs need to be able to find employment and learn to adapt to living in the Netherlands. Hopefully the next generation of Algerian Arabs will get a good education and get better jobs than their parents.


Prayer Points

Pray for Algerian Arabs to seek and find answers in Christ.
Pray for Christ's ambassadors to take Christ to the Netherlands and reach the Algerian Arabs.
Pray for a movement to Christ among Algerian Arabs everywhere.
Ask God to give mission agencies improved strategies for reaching Algerian Arabs for Christ.
