When the Lord called the prophet Elijah home, his dedicated and trustworthy apprentice Elisha immediately took up the mantle and continued Elijah’s work. Ready and willing “Elisha’s” are a little harder to find in Jordan.

“Young people are not really joining the meetings [when we hold them] in a church. Sometimes, they are not even going to the church [at all],” says Abraham* of the Program for Theological Education by Extension (PTEE).

PTEE provides theological training to Arabic-speaking Christians and church leaders throughout the Arab World. Abraham and his fellow Gospel workers noticed young people, individuals between 17- and 20-years old, weren’t interested in PTEE’s traditional classroom approach.

“We call this [the] Youth Center program, [and it’s] connected with our schools,” Abraham says.

“If we say to them from the beginning, ‘we will give you a course or lecture’ they will not come.”
