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.

Jesus Christ, who identified with and responded compassionately to the needs of the vulnerable and marginalized, called us to love our neighbor, saying “blessed are the peacemakers.” MEBO provides financial support to Thimar and its six ministries as they reflect Him in their context with intentionality and excellence.

How We Serve

Through its partnership with Thimar-LSESD, MEBO helps spread and demonstrate the Gospel in the Middle East through theological seminary, Arabic translation and publishing, education, church discipleship, and aid and development.
