tatar adopted people group

The Tatar Focus Team (TFT) exists to see God known and glorified among the Volga Tatars in the Republic of Tatarstan. The Tatars are a Turkic Muslim people group located in the heart of and subject to the Russian Federation. There are only an estimated 0.01% of Tatars who know and follow Jesus Christ.


The TFT and the Midland Free congregation are committed to this work for as long as it takes. But this vision can only be accomplished through engagement of people like you at Midland Free in collaboration with strategic partnerships with stateside churches, missions agencies, and national and ex pat field workers – all undergirded by intercessory prayer.
