We invite you to partner with us and invest in God’s work in the Arab world through providing scholarship support for one or more of our Arab theology students.
Students enroll in our Integrated Theology and Online programs to fulfill God’s calling for their lives. The challenge is that neither they nor their sending churches can afford to cover their tuition or residency fees. Being a ministry with a mission to train faithful Arab men and women for effective service, we accept qualified, eligible students and then set out to raise the needed scholarship support for each student. Contact our Director of Partnerships to learn more and to sponsor a theology student today!
Enjoy panoramic views of Beirut and the sea from one of ABTS’s modern guestrooms!
ABTS sits in the hills of Mansourieh, a perfect getaway in a safe community with cooler temperatures, modern conveniences, and less traffic. We are just 25 minutes away from Downtown Beirut and 30 minutes away from Beirut International Airport. Most importantly, by staying in our guesthouse, you are directly supporting our mission and contributing to the theological formation of Arab servant-leaders.
The Master of Religion in Middle Eastern and North African Studies (MRel in MENA Studies) is a unique and innovative multidisciplinary program taught in English and based in the MENA region.
Administered online with two on-campus residencies per year in Lebanon, this accredited postgraduate degree focuses on providing a strong theoretical understanding of the region and the issues that it faces, combined with an emphasis on developing applied skills needed to work in the region and among MENA communities worldwide. It is based upon a solidly theological and Biblical framework in that each module weaves scripture and theology into its theory and practice.

The program is also designed to bring Arab and non-Arab students together in an environment that will encourage an exchange of ideas, foster deeper understanding of each other’s culture and values, and build meaningful relationships.
