Indigenous Church Planting in Lebanon
About this Mission Project
Lebanon is predominantly Muslim, and Christians are in the minority, which presents both a challenge and an opportunity in sharing the gospel. When Christians demonstrate care for others, it builds bridges of trust and friendship.
The European Baptist Federation (EBF) Mission Partnerships team wants to encourage indigenous leaders in the Middle East and Eastern Europe as they share the gospel. This is a cooperative initiative to start new Baptist congregations, provide mentors and coach church planters.
- $50 provides electricity for a month to one church planter.
- $100 gives transportation for a month.
- $250 buys food for a month for one church planter and their family.
- $500 pays a month’s salary for one church planter and their family.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $26,400 by the end of 2016 to provide support for the ministry of church planters Roni and Farid in Beirut, Lebanon.
The purpose of the project is to provide salaries for these two church planters and their ministries and their families.
This project will be managed by the Rev. Daniel Trusiewicz, EBF Mission Partnerships Coordinator.
It is anticipated that this project will help new church plants to grow and thrive and will meet some social needs of the churches’ local communities.

Baptists are very active in spreading the gospel in different countries in the Middle East, including Iraq and Syria. The evangelistic work is usually closely connected with social projects, as there are many displaced people and refugees who need practical help in these areas. Often these people are those most receptive to the gospel.
