Founded in 2007, Heart for Lebanon's mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Heart for Lebanon believes transformation is a process, not an event.

Heart for Lebanon currently serves a total of 3,000 refugee and at-risk families throughout Lebanon on a monthly basis through the Relief & Community Care Initiative and Children at Risk Initiative. Heart for Lebanon's desired outcome is to move people from despair to hope.
