Sponsor a New Pastor
Churches grow and thrive with varied skills. Help train church leaders in administration, financial management, conflict resolution, and other skills needed for effective church ministries, and support churches in countries such as South Sudan and Kenya.
I am a Master of Divinity graduate of the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) in Lebanon. I work as a counsellor and Bible teacher at a school (grades K-12). Since the Syrian crisis started, I am also involved in my church’s ministry among refugees. We spend much time in prayer with them. A lot of healings have happened. I do discipleship training for women who have come to faith, who are now themselves leading Bible study groups, and others to faith. They pray with such fervor. The joy and transformation that you see in them is so beautiful. It is amazing to see what God is doing through the whole Middle East. It is just beautiful to be a part of it.” —Samar
