Who We Are
How We Got Started

Rani is an Arab Christian, born and raised in Nazareth, Israel — the unofficial Arab capital of the country. Hannah is originally from Dallas, Texas. Rani will complete his Masters degree in Islamic Studies from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in January, 2015.

Who Are The Arab Christians?
Arab Christians in the Holy Land are native
believers of Jesus and can trace their conversion
roots back to the time of Christ. They represent a
small minority of the Israeli and Palestinian
populations, less than 2%.
Most of these Arab Christians belong to the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches. This particular group of Arab Christians represent “the last vital link between the Christian West and the Arab Muslim world.”
