Partner Relations Coordinator
After pursuing a professional career in the banking industry for 8 years, Philip Akiki joined LSESD in November 2022. He felt the time had come for him to move into the ministry and humanitarian field, pursuing not just a career but a meaningful life that brings glory to our God. Philip holds a BA in Business Administration from Haigazian University in Beirut. As Partner Relations Coordinator, he communicates with the churches in Lebanon to assess their needs, and shares the information with partners who feel called to stand alongside the churches through our Salt & Light ministry. The fruits of this cooperation, the success stories, are in turn shared with the partners.
Philip counts it a privilege to be part of this church ministry and his prayer is to see more churches being established in Lebanon. What he likes most about working for LSESD – Thimar is that the organization works closely and directly with the churches and has a genuine desire to reflect the love of God to the people.
Philip’s favorite Bible verse is Joshua 1:8 “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”
