empowers Arab Christ-followers to share the grace and truth of Jesus among the least reached and to establish creative, reproducing faith families throughout the Middle East.
The primary strategy for impacting the Middle East is the multiplication of house churches throughout the region. House churches reflect the New Testament model, avoid the need for costly buildings, allow for rapid expansion, and draw less attention than large, public meetings.
IME is a registered, non-profit organization, incorporated in the state of Ohio and governed by a set of bylaws and a board of directors. An executive director oversees the ministry and reports to the board.
