About Us


MENA Total Employment is a support ministry provided for the Seventh-day Adventist professional who has taken a job in the region in order to contribute to their host country and to serve as an unusual kind of missionary:   a self-sustaining professional with a commitment to mission.  (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 the tentmaking of Paul the Apostle, who modeled self-supporting ministry in the marketplace of Corinth.  But the mission-minded professional has a special role in the MENA workplace.  ​Many businesses and governments throughout the region are interested in international workers who can help them meet industry, business, or educational goals.  

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

The MENA Total Employment support team is committed to recruiting, training, 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.
