Introduction / History

Jordanian Arabs in Canada tend to abide in the major cities. Policies of the Canadian government have been favorable to immigrants who have wealth and business skills.


What Are Their Lives Like?

There is a Jordanian-Canadian Business Association that links Jordanian and Canadian entrepreneurs who have a common interest in developing new businesses in both countries. They promote conferences, seminars, and networking opportunities to those who wish to develop strong businesses.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Most Jordanian Arabs in Canada are Muslim, and they are an unreached people group. Though militant Muslims are rare among the Jordanians, Muslims are generally skeptical about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Without His death and resurrection, there can be no salvation. To a Muslim, salvation comes from obedience to the laws set out in the Koran.


What Are Their Needs?

There are plenty of opportunities for a Muslim to hear the gospel in Canada. They need spiritual discernment and desire for truth.


Prayer Points

Pray that the Christian Jordanians in Canada will love, honor, and obey their Heavenly Bridegroom in such a way that it will attract Muslims to Jesus. Pray that persons and households of peace will be found among the Jordanians of Canada who will catalyze movements to Jesus among their own people. Pray these movements will spread to Jordan and other Arabic-speaking countries.
