Learn to apply Biblical principles that have helped Believers for generations
Meet the 5 Essentials – Biblical truths that Jesus taught and modeled for his disciples. When you practice them together over time, you’re more likely to bear fruit.
The 5 Essentials
Go from "I Can't" to "I Can".
You don’t need to learn Urdu or get a Ph.D. in intercultural studies before you open your mouth for Jesus. Bite-sized content rooted in Scripture, real-life stories, practical application, and personal action plans make this a genuinely holistic program for groups.
Fifteen Years in the Making
Everything you’re about to learn, Renod Bejjani learned the hard way.
He endured intense persecution as a Christian raised in Islamic-ruled nations and spent decades filled with anger toward God and hatred for Muslims. When God redeemed him, he set out to share his faith with the people he’d once hated. He learned from the experts and practiced what he’d learned. It was rocket science, and Renod wasn’t bearing fruit.
Then he turned to the Bible and common sense. He studied the testimonies of hundreds of people from other faith backgrounds. That’s how the 5 Essentials were born. That’s when Renod began bearing fruit. Renod and his wife, Karen, founded iHOPE Ministries, then launched ETHNOS to help others bear fruit too.
Join people all over the world who are bearing fruit too.

Common Questions (and Answers)
ETHNOS is for any Christian who wants to know God more deeply and make Him known. Sharing Jesus across cultures is for all Believers, not just for those with special education or experience.
The ETHNOS course has seven lessons. Most groups meet once a week for seven weeks to go through one lesson a week. Depending on the group’s size, lessons usually last one to two hours to give plenty of time for activities, Bible study, and discussions.
Currently, the ETHNOS course is only available for in-person groups. If you’re interested in coordinating the ETHNOS course for your church or group, go HERE. You’ll find all the information you need about signing up and coordinating a class.
