TEACH (Theological Education for Arab Christians at Home)
There is a hunger to know God in the Middle East and North Africa and we seek to increase the opportunities for God’s Word to equip emerging Christian leaders and to disciple Christian families and new believers. Through the collaboration of three ministries: Overseas Council, SAT-7 and the Middle East Association for Theological Education (MEATE), we are using multimedia technology to reach over 5 million households through satellite television and to equip hundreds more Christian leaders through online courses. Through the TEACH Project, Christian broadcast programs and online Biblical courses can be viewed from the privacy and safety of the individual’s home.
Please help us equip a region of the world that is desperate for God’s message of love, forgiveness and hope for the future. Momentum of interest is growing and the time is right for this program to impact the lives of thousands in the Middle East and North Africa. You can give to TEACH online at overseas.org/Give2Teach.
