“My name is Samar. I am a Master of Divinity graduate of the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary in Lebanon. I work as a counsellor and Bible teacher at a school. Since the Syrian crisis started, I am also involved in my church’s ministry among refugees. We spend much time in prayer with them. A lot of healings have happened. I do discipleship training for women who have come to faith, who are now themselves leading Bible study groups, and others to faith. They pray with such fervor. The joy and transformation that you see in them is so beautiful. It is amazing to see what God is doing through the whole Middle East. It is just beautiful to be a part of it.”

  • Offering theological education scholarships to female church leaders in the Middle East and North Africa, a region in turmoil and in need of Christian witness
  • Empowering women in Rwanda by providing training on gender issues, women and children’s rights and entrepreneurship
  • Supporting national female pastors so they are able to serve and among the Chinese diaspora
  • Other CBM programs which seek to educate, equip, and empower some of the world’s most marginalized women and girls
