The Salvation Army officially started in Kuwait in 2008. Since then, groups of expat Salvationists meeting and worshipping together around the region have been formally recognised and become part of a thriving and Spirit-led family of God.

Eight corps make up the region across four countries, with individual Salvationists also supported via social media in Qatar and Saudi Arabia. As well as the usual church ministries, regional ministry includes community outreach, food security and other practical support, assistance with access to legal advice, care and support to vulnerable and abused domestic workers, as well as those trafficked or tricked into the region.
