Who We Are
A Bridge of Support for the Global Church
MEBO exists to serve as the US fiscal sponsor and a bridge of support from global believers to the LSESD family of ministries serving the Middle East.
Beginning in the 1950s, the vision and efforts of American missionaries led to the creation of Beirut Baptist School (BBS), the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS), and the Christian publishing house, Dar Manhal al-Hayat (DMAH). After transitioning to Lebanese leadership in the 1990s, this family of ministries has grown to six under the umbrella of the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development (LSESD).
What MEBO is Doing
What LSESD is Doing
LSESD is a Lebanese nonprofit that seeks to strengthen the witness of the Church in the Arab World through inclusive education, community development, and church discipleship. A core belief at LSESD is that proclaiming the Gospel goes hand in hand with demonstrating the Gospel. Thus, they aim to imitate His holistic ministry by caring for the whole person — mind, body, and soul.
