Middle East Mission Consultant
About Our Partner
The Rev. Dr. Nuhad Tomeh joined The Outreach Foundation as Middle East Mission Consultant, beginning May 1, 2014, to help us deepen our relationships and our engagement in this critical area for God’s mission. Nuhad works closely with associate director Marilyn Borst who focuses on engaging supporting congregations in mission as Nuhad assists in deepening relationships with partners in the region.
Prior to joining Outreach, Nuhad retired from a mission co-worker position with Presbyterian World Mission in which he served both as PC(USA)’s regional liaison and with the Middle East Council of Churches as an associate general secretary. Nuhad also served as a professor, dean, and acting president of the Near East School of Theology in Beirut, Lebanon. Nuhad is a minister member of the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon, which is the formal name of the Presbyterian Church of Syria and Lebanon. When he is in Tucson, Arizona, where he resides with his wife Grace, he attends St. Andrew Presbyterian Church. They have four grown sons.
Because of Nuhad Tomeh’s deep, personal relationships with church leaders in Syria, Iraq and across the region, he is able to help Outreach and our supporters to focus resources in ways that make a difference, strengthening the church for God’s mission. Nuhad helps us share resources wisely and well, and as he travels with teams and speaks at churches here, he helps us to listen and learn from our Middle Eastern partners.
The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $20,000 to provide a modest stipend and to cover ministry expenses.
