NUBA MOUNTAINS

SUDAN

THE BACKSTORY

During Sudan’s 30+ year civil war, the people of the Nuba Mountains were caught between Sudan’s Islamic government based in Khartoum and the south's rebel army, called the SPLA. Although the Nuba people are largely Muslim, they are not Arab in ethnicity. As Khartoum sought to create a Arabized Sudan, the Nuba people aligned themselves with the SPLA in the south.

 

But when the Civil War ended in 2011 and lines for the new South Sudan were drawn, the people of the Nuba Mountains found themselves on the Khartoum side of the border—trapped in a country whose government wanted to exterminate them.

INTER-FAITH YOUTH CONFERENCE

At the Inter-Faith Youth Conference, Christian and Muslim leaders gathered to discuss ways to build up future generations. We spoke on the Good Samaritan, and Jesus’ principles of service, discipleship and unwavering, unconditional love. On the final day, we learned that the attendees—composed of both Christians and Muslims—had one overarching takeaway: the strongest teaching during the entire conference was that on love.

 

2019 NUBA MOUNTAIN

CHURCH LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE

This year 250 Christians and Muslims gathered in the Nuba Mountains to worship and discover where leadership starts: answering the question, "Who do you say Jesus is?" The two-day conference focused on a Biblical understanding of the person of Jesus and the impact that has for those in positions of leadership. The Gospel is growing in this difficult-to-reach place!

2018 NUBA MOUNTAIN

CHURCH LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE

For the first time in the history of the Nuba Mountains, Christians from six different denominations—some walking up to 8 hours to attend—sat side-by-side to hear the Word of God preached and learn how to better lead their congregations, neighbors and future generations. There were over 300 in attendance.
