Lebanon

MERF’s sister organisation, the Lebanon Reformed Fellowship (LRF) is actively engaged in radio broadcasting, biblical training and counselling.  A fully equipped recording studio produces Arabic gospel broadcasts, and the training centre provides training to pastors and evangelists. 

Daily half-hour radio programs extend to the whole of the Middle East and North Africa, with 340 million Arabs able to tune in daily to a thought-provoking, conversational broadcast on a popular radio station. Hundreds reply by text message, email, or letter and receive personal follow-up. 

The LRF also distributes a Sunday School curriculum in Arabic, based on a simple catechism and including crafts and memory verses. In recent times the LRF has been active in distributing diaconal aid to many refugees from the conflict in Syria.

There are 100 evangelical churches in Lebanon. Despite pressure to force Christians out of Lebanon, there has been significant recent advances resulting in several churches being formed.
