UCCD benefits from friendships and associations with many churches and pastors throughout the world, especially here in Arabia. We have planted three other congregations in the UAE—Redeemer Church of Dubai (2009), Ras Al Khaima Evangelical Church (2013), and Grace Evangelical Church of Sharjah (2014). In addition, we enjoy valuable ministry fraternity with other churches and pastors in Abu Dhabi, Lebanon, Egypt, and elsewhere.
Our pastoral internship aims to equip aspiring pastors, evangelists and church leaders from this part of the world with education, training and ministry opportunities here in the Middle East. Each year we invite 3-5 men to train with us for a 9-month period of observing, studying, and engaging with the church. By God's grace many of these men continue to serve for the advance of the Gospel in the region.
