September’s Faith Promise Focus:
Elie and Mireille Haddad
Elie serves as President of the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) in Beirut, Lebanon. ABTS equips leaders for the Church in the entire Arabic-speaking world. Students come from as far west as Morocco and as far east as Iraq.
Mireille serves with Heart for Lebanon, a Christian NGO that provides humanitarian aid and relief to marginalized people groups, including the ever increasing number of refugees who continue to enter Lebanon. Mireille works primarily among female refugees, caring for them physically, emotionally, educationally, and spiritually.
Both Elie and Mireille grew up in Lebanon before immigrating to Canada. Elie was a senior technical consultant in the field of information technology before he and Mireille joined CBM in 2005.
