Who We Are
As a ministry of the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development (LSESD), the Baptist Children and Youth Ministry (BCYM) aims to serve vulnerable children and youth in Lebanon by showing them the love of Christ and discipling them to maturity. In addition, it strives to develop long-term relationships with families through regular visits and relief support. BCYM carries out these goals by organizing three-day kids’ camps, one-day follow-up events, and training programs for both youth and children’s ministry leaders within the local churches. BCYM is dedicated to sharing hope and God’s love with even the most downtrodden of children and youths, including refugees and raise them up into fully-functioning members of God’s kingdom.
Today BCYM holds around 20 three-day camps each year for Syrian and Lebanese children, along with 20 follow-up events. Recently, BCYM also expanded its reach to provide training for young leaders in the local churches, in order to achieve its vision of seeing a new generation of believers rise up to serve their communities through the church. Currently, BCYM hosts training workshops for youth leaders in locations across Lebanon. BCYM hopes to continue to expand its horizons and mobilize even more youth to reach out to the underprivileged within their own communities.
