About Tuvalu

Located in the central Pacific, Tuvalu is made up of nine coral atolls.  Most Tuvaluans identify as Christian and the Christian church is a long-standing presence in the nation.  Limited resources and rising sea levels present an uncertain future for the small island nation.  The economy is based around subsistence farming, fisheries, the internet and remittances for Tuvaluans who are living abroad.

 

Problems to be solved
  • Wisdom is needed as the nation deals with rising sea levels and dwindling resources.

  • External influences and modern society threaten the fragile Tuvaluan culture.

  • Pray for revival, renewal and sound biblical teaching amongst the church and throughout the nation.

 

Signs of hope
  • Tuvalu has a strong Christian tradition.

  • Newer church movements are seeing expansion and progress within the nation.
