Jordan Evangelical Theological Seminary

The mission of Jordan Evangelical Theological Seminary (JETS) is “to equip spiritual leaders for planting and strengthening churches in the Arab World.” Since 1991, JETS has equipped Christian leaders from Arabic-speaking countries in the Middle East, the Arabian Peninsula and North Africa.

An inter-denominational school, JETS is accredited by the European Evangelical Accrediting Association (EEAA), the Asia Theological Association (ATA) and the Middle East Association for Theological Education (MEATE). It offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees, as well as a Doctor of Ministry degree. These programs are designed to prepare men and women for ministry, often in difficult areas.

JETS graduates serve in several Arab countries, as well as in Arab communities in the West. They minister in roles including church planters, pastors, teachers, writers, evangelists, worship leaders and women’s ministry leaders. And, God has used them to bring many to faith in Christ and to plant churches in challenging places.

Your gift to the Jordan Evangelical Theological Seminary will equip more Christian leaders for ministry in Arab communities. Through JETS graduates, least-reached people hear the gospel and churches are planted.

JETS Needs for the 2019-2020 School Year

Student Scholarships - $1,200 per month ($700 tuition and $500 living expenses) per student

Non-Jordanians must leave behind their homes and jobs in order to attend seminary; but, through donations, JETS is able to provide each student with a “living” scholarship in exchange for eight hours of work on campus each week. Without these scholarships, most students would not be able to undertake their studies. 

The more students JETS can assist through scholarships, the more individuals it can train to reach others for the kingdom of God. Twenty-three new students are in need of these scholarships, and JETS needs additional funds to provide this assistance to them.

Campus Development - $95,000

Funds are needed to complete outdoor projects at JETS, including work on roads, parking lots and landscaping. Your gift can help JETS improve its campus, helping it rent out some of its facilities and generate income.

Campus Security - $45,000

JETS is thankful to be located in stable country that’s considered the safest in the Middle East. However, in response to a risk management assessment, the seminary is seeking to install a security system that can observe the JETS campus and the surrounding area. Your gift can help ensure the safety of faculty, students and staff.

Publishing - $10,000 per book

The selection of Arabic-language books on biblical topics available to JETS students is very limited. In response, the seminary has asked its faculty to begin writing books and other materials that can be published through the JETS Publishing House, and it’s seeking to publish seven books in the 2019/2020 school year. These titles cover challenging subjects such as the Trinity, responding to evil and suffering, the end times and church ministry.

Participate by Praying for the Jordan Evangelical Theological Seminary:

  • Praise God for using JETS to equip believers to plant and strengthen churches in the Arab world.
  • Pray that many people will place their faith in Christ through the ministry of JETS graduates.
  • Ask God to provide the funds needed for scholarships for JETS students, who aren’t allowed by law to work off campus.
