Stay up to date with the latest news about our programs, activities, and student body through our monthly newsletter, through Facebook and through Twitter.
In our monthly newsletter, you can read student testimonies to learn about their calling and ministry, gain an insight into our educational programs, learn about the varied research projects and studies of our faculty, receive updates on IMES’ annual Middle East Consultation, and much more!
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 residential 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 Partnerships Manager Wissam al-Saliby to learn more and to sponsor a theology student today!
Join many non-native Arabic speakers and get to know the ABCs of modern Arabic language.
The Academy of Languages and Practical Skills or ALPS is a comprehensive Arabic program designed especially for you. Please take a look and see for yourself the ALPS difference. We would love to hear about your Arabic learning goals and answer any questions you may have.
ALPS recognizes that each student has different learning goals and needs. That is why we structure our courses around you.
With small class sizes of no more than 6 students, you will learn more Arabic in less time.
Choose the number of hours you spend in class a week. Classes start throughout the year, and we work with your scheduling needs to form each class, no matter if you are studying with us for a week, a month, a semester, or a year!
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.
