Project Description

Growing Up With Jesus – Arabic Sunday School Curriculum

Arabic Sunday SchoolFor Middle East countries particularly Egypt/Jordan/Syria/Lebanon. This will extend in time to be used in other Arabic speaking countries of the Gulf States.

1000 copies to be printed of all 16 lesson books. A well-established distribution network has been established through all main church groups/ denominations in Egypt and a growing contact list in other neighbouring countries.


Arabic Sunday School Research with denominations shows in Egypt and other similar countries that there are no complete age based curriculum available in Arabic with colour visual aids. Curriculum covers 8 years of lessons (16 lessons) for all ages from 4 –12 (in fact up to 15 or 16 years old for rural people).

Teacher handbooks are in English and a translation team (6 people) and an editing team ( 3 people) has been setup and initial work is commencing mid April. One leader said, “We really need this systematic teaching for our children in Egypt.”

Location – Middle East

Dr. Nathan Bassaly (W. O. Egypt Director) will oversee the translation project together with a team which is widely representative of the Evangelical Churches in Egypt.

Future Goals

500 Churches using this material benefiting approximately 10,000 children.
25,000 children using the curriculum after 3 years
