Due to the sensitivity of their ministries and the region where they are ministering, the Chettis do not post news or journals to the web.

Dan and Sarah Chetti, the first International Ministries global servants in the Arab World, have been in Lebanon for over a decade—and have continued to serve through the Israel-Hezbollah fighting and the “Arab Spring” and “Arab Winter.” They believe these are moments of great challenge, yet opportune times in the Arab World.

Dan is an Adjunct Professor at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary, Beirut—an institution preparing leaders for ministry primarily across nine countries in the Middle East and North Africa. He teaches history of Christianity and historical theology. In addition, he is a member of the Faculty Council, mentors students, and does research and writing on contemporary Christianity. Dan is currently promoting a strategic ministry called "Enduring Love"

Sarah worked as the librarian at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary, reviving and reorganizing it after the long Lebanese Civil War. She expanded the holdings, classifying and computerizing the entire library. She then trained and turned over the management of the library to a Lebanese lady.

For the last few years, Sarah has been pioneering a ministry among foreign migrant women working as maids in Lebanon. There are 300,000 foreign maids laboring in Lebanon, a small nation with a population of just three million. Sarah ministers with the help of three other ladies. She visits and ministers at two other prisons, including one in Tripoli. She now runs an integrated Centre for Domestic Workers—Insaaf: Justice and Compassion of Jesus—at Hadath Baptist Church, Beirut. In cooperation with other organizations, Sarah advocates for the rights of the maids, fighting injustice and human trafficking.

Dan and Sarah are very active members of the International Church in Beirut, a vibrant congregation with over thirty nationalities. Dan is a member of the Ministry Leadership Team; he preaches and coordinates home groups and mission outreach. The Chettis host one of the home groups once a week and Dan hosts a men’s prayer breakfast twice a month.
