Church Planting in Iraq Through… Agriculture? With Justin Carney

The early 2000’s wasn’t a prime time for Americans visiting Iraq. But that’s when Justin Carney, a son of a Kansas farmer, found himself called to the mission field in an undeniable way. On today’s episode, Justin shares stories of death-defying ministry to mullahs and how God used his ministry to plant the gospel in the surprisingly fertile soil of the Middle East—and how the literal soil of Iraq is opening doors for business as mission today.

Justin Carney is the Director of Business Development for FaithLink. If you’d like to get in touch with him, email so we can protect his work in secure countries.

Don’t forget our sponsor, the Global Gospel Fund. We believe missionaries should be free to do the ministry they’re called to—not to waste precious ministry hours handling logistics. The Global Gospel Fund provides 1,000 missionaries across 70 countries with counsel, support, and a team of experts who know them by name. If you’re burdened for missions this giving season but don’t know where to start, we invite you to become a partner.

Remember to share, rate, leave a review, and subscribe. Together we can help bridge the gap between the worlds of theology and missions.
