One of AWEMA’s priorities is to equip and support the local churches spiritually, theologically, and administratively; since churches are the center of the Christian work in the Arab countries. This ensures that churches would be built on strong Biblical foundations, so that they can serve people and build them up spiritually and socially, besides building their personal skills, so that they would be salt and light in their societies.
There is a huge need in the Arab world for qualified church leaders and workers who are rooted in the word of God. AWEMA’s goal is to provide Arab leaders with comprehensive theological, spiritual and ministry trainings. Training courses cover different fields such as: evangelism, leadership, theological studies, church development, family ministry, Christian counseling, etc. All these courses are taught through the Augustine Theological Institute (ATI).
