About Us


Middle East & North Africa Total Employment (MENA TE) is a support ministry provided for Seventh-day Adventist professionals who are employed in the region and committed to a personal ministry in their secular role.  The contribution to a host country is an unusual kind of missionary:  a self-supported witness working as a contributing member to the community and perhaps as the only Seventh-day Adventist presence in the region.  (See the Characteristics of a Tentmaker.)

Tentmaking among the skyscrapers of one of the Middle East's scores of sprawling cities is far different than what Paul the Apostle did to support himself in the marketplace of Corinth.  But it's still an important role in the MENA mission.  Businesses and governments in the region hire international workers to meet industry, business, or educational goals; tentmakers are positive contributors to their host country.

Add the fact that in many of the 20 countries of MENA, religious workers and church institutions are limited or even illegal.  Dedicated professionals who accept employment in the region can take God's presence to new frontiers.

The MENA TE support team is committed to recruiting and encouraging people like you to consider using your profession to represent Him to those who would otherwise never meet the God who loves them.
