IMES Strategic Goals: Education, Peace-Building, and Advocacy

IMES’ priorities are:

  • To provoke our Evangelical communities to a Christ-like attitude towards Muslims that nurtures vibrant witness;
  • To promote Christ’s model of peace by providing space for diverse people in Lebanon to come together, addressing issues of injustice and facilitating healing;
  • To equip our constituencies with the necessary knowledge and skills to advocate for justice and human rights in our region, along the injunction of Micah 6:8: “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
