Based in Beirut, Lebanon, Joe Bridi works with CBM’s local partners to develop strategies for ministry and provide support to graduates of Arab Baptist Theological Seminary who are launching ministries in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region. He helps monitor and evaluate existing projects, and provides implementation and reporting support for specific initiatives. Born and raised in Lebanon, Joe has a background in the tech sector, but has felt a strong call to be in full-time ministry over the past several years. He has a heart for people and serves Syrian refugees in his area by leading Bible studies and discipleship groups.
Joe is married to Alexandra, who serves as the HR and Administration Manager at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary. They have two young boys, Jad and Rami.
