Americans hire Lebanese Christians

By May 24, 2022

Lebanon (MNN) — As Lebanon’s financial crisis worsens, people aren’t being paid enough to buy food. Even very educated men and women can’t get jobs that make enough money.

Horizons International wants to help by joining these people in Lebanon with businesses and ministries in the U.S. Pierre Houssney says, “Some of my friends in the US have businesses that they work for, or that they own. They are figuring out what little tasks here and there they could outsource to somebody that’s capable and that would only need a little bit of training and guidance.”

It’s all about paying these believers a sustainable, living wage. The tasks might include graphic design, video editing, or even accounting services. Houssney says one American pastor employs people in Lebanon for an E-commerce website that supports his ministry.

How does this intersect with the Great Commission? Houssney says, “One of the most strategic things that we can do today for the Great Commission in the Middle East is helping the believers in Lebanon remain in Lebanon.”

“Not only are we giving them opportunities to make income, we’re also helping them apply their newfound skills to ministry contexts.”

Do you have any work or roles that can be done online? Consider outsourcing to Lebanese believers. Houssney says, “Reach out to us and we will let you know if we have staff available. Or we can recruit new staff that are skilled in these things. There’s a high education level in Lebanon. These are ambitious people that can really help your business or ministry out.”
