Evangelical Protestant Church in Morocco
The Evangelical Protestant Church in Morocco (Eglise Evangélique au Maroc, EEAM) serves Christ on a land at the crossroads of north and south (Africa and Europe) and east and west (the Muslim World and the West). With ten congregations in cities all over Morocco (Agadir, Marrakesh, Casablanca, Mohammedia, Rabat, Meknes, Fez, Kenitra, Tangier, and Oujda) served by four pastors and several pastoral interns, the EEAM has a membership representing more than fifty nationalities, the majority young people coming as students from Sub-Saharan Africa. Members come from Protestant traditions of all varieties.
Recognizing their “internationality,” the EEAM sees welcoming the stranger as one of its principal ministries. They are committed to offering hospitality – hospitality toward those who come to live and worship with them in Morocco and hospitality toward those passing through the country as migrants. Since 2003, the church has been intentional in its response to the crisis of migration through the CEI, the International Aid Committee, the diaconal service of the church. Our trained local CEI teams assist those in great need through emergency aid (food, shelter, clothing, medical care), scholarships for students who lose their support from home, microprojects for migrants, and professional training programs.
As most of their membership is also very young, EEAM sees education and training as another priority ministry, emphasizing interfaith and multicultural theological reflection. They offer theological formation opportunities to all our members, training members to preach and lead worship in programs organized throughout the year. In addition, since 2013, they have been a part of the exciting venture of creating an Ecumenical Theological Institute, offering high-quality, university-level theological education for pastoral interns and others who desire to further their theological education.
EEAM is a family of faith committed to the worship of and service to the living God – gathering as diverse people in one body for praise and proclamation, prayer and Bible study, the celebration of communion and baptism, outreach and service in the name of Christ, through the Spirit of God in our Muslim context.
