What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

More than 50 percent of the Middle East is under the age of 25. The time to reach the next generation is NOW! In most Middle East countries, less than 3% of the population are professing Christians. We want to empower the next generation to transform the Middle East by the love and hope of Jesus Christ.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We exist to mobilize and equip the next generation of Christians so that they may share the Gospel with every Arabic-speaker in the Levant. We are committed to discipling, training, and investing in the spiritual gifts of the next generation to advance the Kingdom of God.

We accomplish our vision to see the Middle East transformed by the love and hope of Jesus Christ through 6 Methods:

METHOD #1: MOBILIZATION
We use events and conferences around the world as a platform for connection and mobilization. Through these gatherings, we ignite love for the Middle East, equip believers with spiritual resources, and inspire the next generation to action.

METHOD #2: LEADERSHIP TRAINING
Upon identifying emerging and potential leaders in the Levant region, we conduct intensive training of trainers (TOT). This essential training equips leaders with our tools/resources and empowers them to train others through our small groups ministry.

METHOD #3: SMALL GROUPS
Small Groups are the most effective strategy to grow believers in the Middle East. Through our Small Groups, we train young leaders on how to carry out the work of evangelism, discipleship and church planting. Small Groups are the safest way for new converts to gather, grow, and develop.

METHOD #4: MISSIONS
This platform for mission work enables us to send the next generation into the mission field and the marketplace. Through this program, we share the Gospel through strategic projects and initiatives and grow disciples who come to faith in Jesus.

METHOD #5: EQUIPPING REGIONAL CHURCHES
As part of our mission, we created this special program to support pastors and churches and equip them with resources to do ministry more effectively and encourage them to raise up leaders from within to multiply their efforts.

METHOD #6: MEDIA PRODUCTION
Levant Media creates dynamic and engaging visual media to share the Gospel across multiple media platforms. Our current work includes Satellite TV broadcast programs, training and discipleship media, animated short videos and more.

We are Local

Levant Ministries comprises a large team of native Arabs and numerous skilled workers from different backgrounds who are committed to the fulfillment of the Great Commission in the Arab world by going back to the Middle East and the Levant region and sharing the Gospel with Arabs and Muslims. We strongly support the mission of the local church and its efforts in reaching its community with the message of Jesus Christ. We are dedicated to community outreach and serving the local body of believers.

We are Global

We have been in the field of Arabic ministry for over 50 years. Levant is passionate about planting new churches among unreached people, training new believers, and equipping leaders throughout Arabic-speaking regions and around the globe. We work with numerous indigenous local ministries as well as underground churches in many countries where the Bible is banned. Levant encompasses a strong global network of pastors, missionaries, and Christian workers who are united in vision to penetrate darkness with the light of Christ.

We are Glocal

Our calling revolves around GLOCAL ministry: serving the local church while maintaining a global perspective, that is, reaching the world for Christ. Our primary allegiance lies in the local church, as we believe that it is the starting point for all fruitful mission work. We firmly believe that the church’s impact should reach beyond its geographical location. Our mission is to support the church in its fulfillment of the Great Commission and reaching the unreached and unengaged Arabic communities.

Levant Ministries has empowered and equipped thousands of NEXTGEN youth and young adults with dynamic resources to become faithful followers of Jesus Christ. These NEXTGEN leaders have gone on to participate in global mission trips, small group launches, media productions, and full time missions placement.

Levant will continue in our mission to share the Gospel in the Middle East by hosting international NEXTGEN Conferences, sending global missions trips, launching NEXTGEN initiatives with global strategic partners, distributing curriculum and materials for deeper spiritual growth, and producing new dynamic, innovative media content.
