Welcome to the MEBO Family of Ministries!

MEBO works closely with Middle Eastern Christian leaders on a multi-track mission to strengthen the witness of the Church in the Middle East. The family of ministries are six, locally-led, faith-based ministries united under the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development including the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary, Dar Manhal Al Hayat publishing house, the Beirut Baptist School, SKILD Center (Smart Kids with Individual Learning Differences), Baptist Children and Youth Ministry, and MERATH (Middle East Revive and Thrive).

Our Mission

We empower the church in the Middle East to communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ through outreach, education and love of neighbor.

Because we follow Jesus Christ, who identified with and responded compassionately to the needs of the vulnerable and marginalized, calling us to love our neighbor and saying “blessed are the peacemakers,” MEBO partners with a family of ministries that are reflecting Him in their context with intentionality and excellence.
