According to the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts, the number of missionaries to Islamic countries grew from 15,000 to 27,000 between the years 1982 and 2001 - and around 1 out of every 3 is Evangelical. The following research is mainly based on the experiences of those who are involved in the Iranian Christian Fellowship (ICF) and Elam Ministries. Both were developed in the London area in 1986.
