Middle East Reformed Fellowship (MERF) is an evangelical Christian missionary organization which serves in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia on behalf of Reformed and Presbyterian Family of Churches and believers worldwide. Our work is bearing fruit for the Kingdom of Christ among the twenty-two nations of the Arab League and other Muslim areas in Africa and Asia. MERF strengthens national churches with ministries of evangelism, church extension, biblical training, and diaconal aid.

Sudan is bordered by Egypt to the north, the Red Sea to the northeast, Eritrea and Ethiopia to the east, South Sudan to the south, the Central African Republic to the southwest, Chad to the west, and Libya to the northwest. The population of Sudan is a combination of indigenous inhabitants of Nile Valley, and descendants of migrants from the Arabian Peninsula. The vast majority of the population of Sudan adheres to Islam. The Nile divides the country between east and west sides. Following a referendum held in January 2011, the southern part of Sudan peacefully seceded on 9 July 2011, forming South Sudan.

MERF ministers in Khartoum, the capital, through broadcasting weekly hour-long Gospel messages in Arabic over national radio and TV throughout the country. Through the Nile Theological College and the Gideon Bible School in Khartoum, we also support the training of local pastors to continue to minister in Sudan. We partner with the  Sudanese Presberterian Evangelical Synod and the Sudanese Church of Christ (which is essentially Baptist) to minister through church planting, hospitals, prison ministry, Sunday schools, and distributing Arabic catechisms. As part of this partnership, MERF supports 74 pastors and 77 evangelists from the Sudan Church of Christ and 116 pastors and 36 evangelists in the Evangelical Synod.  Additionally, MERF workers minister to inmates at a prison in Khartoum, bringing them supplies and Christian literature, as well as leading prison fellowship groups.
