In Revelation 5:9 the word of God says “and they sang a new song, saying: You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation”.
The Arab Fellowship Church started in 2006 with three believers – Brother Samir, Brother Ashraf, and Sister Eveneice. In May of 2010, Pastor Amgad moved to Kansas with his wife, Amir, and their child, and became the Pastor of the Arab Fellowship Church. He started reaching out to all Middle Eastern, African Arabic speaking believers and non-believers to spread the good news of the gospel.
The Arab Fellowship Church is supported from different local Presbyterian churches while I am one of the church planters supported by the BR-KC church planting budget. Your funds allow me to be able to help the Arab Fellowship Church.
The main purpose of the Arab Fellowship Church is to provide service to the Arabic speaking people and to witness to non-believers to accept Christ as their personal savior. The church also provides spiritual support to refugees currently displaced and barely surviving in our area who are from the Middle East, as well as to orphanages. For example, during Christmas of 2016, the church invited all Syrian refugees who live in Kansas and Missouri to come together for dinner, share testimonies to encourage people and worship in Arabic. I had the privilege of sharing my testimony and telling about the mission trips to the Eritrean refugee camp in Ethiopia.
Pastor Amgad and the board members have dedicated themselves in proclaiming the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to the metropolitan area. I am also committed to ministering to the Arabic speaking folks in Kansas and Missouri
If anyone wants to get involved and support the Arab Fellowship please contact the BR-KC office or Pastor Amgad at 805-665-6032.
