In the aftermath of the Beirut explosion, our ministry partners have significant financial support needs – both for their compassionate programmes as they reach out to others and for the repair of damaged facilities as they restore ministry capacity. For those able to prayerfully consider a gift, we recommend the following evangelical ministries with whom Serving In Mission partners:
Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development
LSESD seeks to reflect the love of Christ through inclusive education, relief and development, and equipping the church. It is currently providing food aid and other basic needs, including shelter for displaced families at the Baptist seminary. It is also making urgent repairs to the Beirut Baptist School, ahead of the new school year, and to a Christian bookshop.
Heart for Lebanon
Working among refugee communities for many years, Heart for Lebanon works to move people from despair to hope in Jesus Christ. They say: “We ask that you partner with us to help bring relief and hope to those who have been affected by the explosion. Your partnership helps provide food, hygiene items, security, life-sustaining essentials, and COVID-19 protection.”
Resurrection Church Beirut
RCB seeks to make disciples for Jesus Christ through a range of outreach and compassionate initiatives. It is seeking funds to enable it to renovate houses that have been damaged, provide for those needing surgery or other hospital treatment, and to care for those who have been displaced.
Lebanon Evangelical School for Boys and Girls
As a large evangelical school in Beirut, LES is seeking funds to ensure ministry continuity and development at a time of huge financial need, exacerbated by COVID-19 and by the recent explosion. The school is seeking to develop its online teaching resources and IT infrastructure. It is appealing for loans, as well as for gifts, as its reserves are inaccessible because of banking controls.
This Is Lebanon
Serving foreign domestic workers, This Is Lebanon brings Christ’s hope to some of the most marginalised, vulnerable and abused in Lebanon through practical support, legal advocacy and raising public awareness. To donate
The leading regional Christian satellite TV broadcaster SAT-7 is responding to the disaster through special programmes to complement the work of humanitarian agencies and local churches. It is appealing for gifts to support its team on the ground as it makes repairs to its Beirut studio and continues to produce and broadcast programmes directly in response to the crisis and support to its viewers.
