Providing Gospel Resources for All Ages
At least 750 distinct people groups live on the 6,000 inhabited islands of Indonesia. More than 80% of the population associates with the Muslim faith, and only 15% identify themselves as Christians. Animism strongly influences the religious practices of tribal people, whether Muslim or Christian.

Arliyanus earned a masters of theology degree from Jakarta Theological Seminary in the department of mission and dialogue. He lives in Jakarta with his wife, Esther, and three children.
