Global Partners

1. Learn

In the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region, our partners at Bridges of Hope are manifesting the good news of Jesus in some of the most challenging places to live as a Christian. Everyday, they risk their safety and lives to carry out God’s call to go and make disciples.

Throughout December, we’ll be hearing some of their stories. They are powerful stories that will challenge and stir our hearts to move into an active posture of learning, praying, and sharing together.

Take some time to learn about their ministry.


2. Pray

Prayer Guide

Use our prayer guide to join us in prayer as we prepare our hearts to celebrate and welcome Jesus together. Each week, we will be led through a time of reflection and practices that will draw us closer to God in prayer and praise with our family, community, and global partners.

3. Share

Our partners at Bridges of Hope are committed to teaching, training, and mobilizing church leaders and local believers throughout the MENA region.

As we stand with them in the power of prayer, we will be shar ing financially in what God is doing through their ministry across the region. Our goal is to share $250,000 together as a church this Christmas.

To join us, you can designate your gift to our Behold – Christmas 2023 Fund by December 31.
