Our Church's Mission

Mission Nugget - Mission Around the World – Beirut, Lebanon

Dan and Sarah Chetti, International Ministries’ first missionaries in the Arab World, have been serving in Lebanon for over a decade – and have continued to serve through the Israel – Hezbollah fighting and the “Arab Spring” and “Arab Winter”. They believe these are moments of great challenge, yet opportune times in the Arab World. Dan is an Adjunct Professor at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary, Beirut – an institution preparing leaders for the ministry primarily across nine countries in the Middle East and North Africa. He teaches History of Christianity and Historical Theology. Dan is currently promoting a strategic ministry concept called Arab World Initiative.

For the last few years, Sarah has been pioneering a ministry among foreign migrant women working as maids in Lebanon. In cooperation with other organizations, Sarah advocates for the rights of the “maids”, fighting injustice and human trafficking. Languages used in ministry: English and Arabic.
