WHAT WE DO

Ananias House exists to empower the growing body of Christ in the Middle East and North Africa through strategic leadership training and Gospel-centered resourcing. We recognized this need when the last decade of conflict and instability in the MENA region resulted in large numbers of people converting to Christianity. As a result, the region’s churches have become gripped with significant challenges. Many church leaders have fled their countries for security and safety reasons, creating a spiritual leadership vacuum in the region. Our Strategic Leadership Training program directly addresses these challenges and helps churches strengthen their biblical foundation and Christian principles. Among those who have not been forced to flee, many have been displaced by war and violence. Ananias House partners with local churches to provide life’s basic necessities to these families. Our Gospel-centered resourcing also addresses longterm needs, such as supporting student education and equipping the local church so it can better serve the community.

“And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.” – 1 Timothy 2:2

Strategic Leadership Training

Equipping pastors and leaders with theological training and leadership skills to strengthen the local church.

Pastor/Leader Trainings

In response to the leadership crisis in the MENA region, we are empowering pastors and church leaders with theological training, leadership development, and strategic support through our Pastor/Leader training program. These leaders, in turn, equip others to teach and disciple, strengthening the local church.

Women's Leadership Trainings

In this conflict-torn region, many women have become the sole providers for their families. Our Women’s Leadership program holistically develops selected women to be godly, competent, and confident servants of the Church through discipleship, trauma healing, and leadership and economic skills.

Marriage Counseling

As part of our Pastor/Leader training program, our Marriage Counseling trainings provide a biblical approach to marriage so that pastors and leaders can better love, serve, and understand their spouses. This equips participants to strengthen the local church by developing a healthy, biblical ethic of marriage.

Trauma Healing

Many in the MENA region suffer trauma from war, displacement, relational discord, or persecution. We strive to equip pastors and leaders with the insight and tools needed to assist their community in identifying trauma and developing coping mechanisms, with the hope of restoring emotional health and vitality.

Gospel-Centered Resourcing

Empowering the local church to be a place of healing, restoration, and hope.

Frontline Workers

We support indigenous pastors and leaders in the MENA region who are strong evangelists for the Gospel. These “frontline workers,” some from Muslim backgrounds, understand the cultural, political, and religious aspects of the areas they serve, so they have great impact on communities. Under their leadership, the local church grows.

Equipping Churches

Ananias House helps locate and acquire buildings for believers to gather in order to safely conduct worship services and come together as a community. For those churches and Christian centers that have been damaged or destroyed in a conflict, our ministry supplies equipment and assists in repairing physical structures.

Relief

We desire the Church in the MENA region to be the first responder to a community’s suffering, as the hands and feet of Christ. To advance this aim, we partner with local churches and other organizations to provide relief supplies to suffering communities in the form of food rations, medical assistance, heaters, and blankets.

Christian Education

Ananias House helps support local MENA evangelical schools and children’s programs so students are offered godly, Biblical teaching. We also provide financial assistance to many students by covering a percentage of the cost of school fees, supplies, and transportation to help ensure the next generation goes forth with the Gospel.

Bible Printing

We desire to equip the local church to offer the Word of God to every person it encounters. With our legal permit to print the Bible and other Christian books, we are now locally printing and, through our frontline workers, distributing, hundreds of thousands of copies in many countries, some where it is a great risk to do so.
