Strengthen the Church
Christians often face discrimination or persecution and are in urgent need of encouragement. Faith in Jesus can be very costly; Muslims who have become Christians often pay a high price and are put under pressure by family and friends. Leaving Islam (apostasy) is considered to be treason; there are numerous stories about divorce, imprisonment, torture and even death after Muslims became Christians. There is a great need for encouragement to stand strong in their faith. Many of them often have no other believers in the vicinity.
We provide discipleship and bible school-style programs and music and pastoral programs to strengthen the faith of young believers and for those without access to a church.

The Quest II
The interactive programme for young people, The Quest, which we produced in 2015, is now being broadcast by SAT-7 and is also available on a special website plus on a number of social media, like Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.
There are hardly any youth programs available on the major Christian channels and we have been asked to produce a second series of this programme, which is especially designed for youth age 12-18.
The elements of competition, entertainment and Bible study have proven to be a good combination. Quest II will consist of thirteen 28- minutes-episodes. Each episode will contain a topic related to the values Jesus taught in the Beatitudes like humility, suffering, seeking justice, being persecuted and striving for peace.
We still need about US$ 20,000 for this new production. Any help you can give us is very welcome indeed!

Not that long ago, the concept of atheism was unknown in the Middle East and North Africa. In many, if not all, countries it is customary to mention someone’s religion on the ID card.
Since the Arabic revolutions things are changing.A quick look at Facebook will tell you that there are groups like ‘The Egyptian Association for Atheists’, ‘Saudi Feminist Atheists’, and ‘Tunisian Atheists’.
In a new series of programs we are preparing, the spotlight will be on families who have to deal with young people who have doubts, relatives who openly call themselves atheists, parents and other members of the family who have no idea how to relate to this. Nobody is used to have an open conversation about believing or not believing, and this is the purpose of the programs: to open up the conversation, to give room for questions and doubts. No ready-made answers, but searching for the essence of faith together.
The program format will be drama, about a family living in an apartment in a big building, which they are sharing with their relatives.
The program will consist of 26 episodes, each of 3-5 min and with a 2 min conclusion.We will need approximately US$2500 per episode.
Kingdom Person II
“I watched all the episodes of Kingdom Person. I was deeply touched by the meanings of light and truth. I was excited to get to know that the real meaning of spirituality is not about attending meetings in the church or doing the things that I used to do, but to live in the grace of God and enjoy freedom. Knowing that the focus of my life is to participate in God’s original design makes a big difference for me.”
The first season of Kingdom Person was very well received. The production crew was the first ‘audience’ to be impacted significantly by the content of the programmes. The speaker has a talent for tackling relevant issues for daily Christian life in an inviting, thought-provoking, and refreshing way – aiming at equipping Arab Christians to live as genuine disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in a difficult (sometimes extremely hostile) environment.
The second series of Kingdom Person will have 26 episodes of 15 minutes each, plus 26 short clips on social media. Some of the themes are: How to become a mature Christian and resemble Christ, how to deal with suffering, and how to integrate spiritual, psychological and theological aspects in living a Christian life.

Many passages in the bible encourage us to talk about God’s great deeds, His love, grace and wisdom to the next generations. Young children are open to learn and it is our calling to teach them how our Lord God walked and talked with people just like us.
Many parents these days are so busy that they try to keep their children entertained with computer games, but children all over the world love listening to stories, especially while sitting on grandma’s or grandpa’s lap. That is why we want to present a meaningful program for children, ages 3-6, to keep them fascinated.
At the same time we want to involve the parents and encourage them to have quality time with their children, by memorising the bible verse with them and talking about the story.
We plan to produce a TV series of 365 episodes; each episode of about 5-7 minutes covers a bible story, has a song and a bible verse.
For €160 or US$ 200 you can sponsor one episode.
The majority of the population in many Arab countries is youth under 25 years old. Do they feel they matter in church? Do they feel they can have a say in how the churches view a Christian life style, communication with God, being called by God? Or are they considered too young, not yet mature – by themselves and/or by the Arab church leadership and other adults?
Arab Vision is developing a TV program series about young people in the Bible and how they were used in God’s plans, called, taken seriously… and about how this had a great impact on their and other people’s lives. The programs will also apply the stories and lessons learned to daily (family) life.
An encounter with God and his plans for our young people today will change their lives and their future, and, possibly, the future of complete societies.
The series will consist of 13 programs of each 10 minutes.
For €1500 you can sponsor one episode.
