In 2005, God gave Dr. Michael Youssef a vision to make Biblical Truth accessible in the Middle East, North Africa, and beyond. In 2009, this vision became reality when THE KINGDOM SAT—a 24/7 satellite TV channel broadcasting the Gospel into hundreds of millions of homes in the Islamic world—was launched. Fourteen years later, our ministry to this restricted region only continues to grow as we lift up Christ. Each day, we witness incredible hunger and thirst for God's Word in the Middle East. We hear from men like Eslam from Egypt:
"Although I was a Muslim, I faithfully followed your programs. . . . Eventually, I came to a crossroads. I told myself that I would not deprive myself of the grace that is only found in Christ. In that moment, I made the decision to follow Jesus and enjoy His salvation."
By God's grace, we are able to provide ongoing discipleship to new believers from a Muslim background through our on-the-ground field team.
And women like Hadel from Lebanon:
"After many years of struggling with Islamic teaching, I concluded that it leads to self-destruction. I then began following your Dear God program on THE KINGDOM SAT and became convinced that Christianity is true. I cannot describe the deep peace and encouragement I experienced after I prayed with your field team to accept Jesus as my Savior."
Like Eslam and Hadel, more than 76% of our viewers are either Muslim or former Muslims. By God's grace, we are able to provide ongoing discipleship to new believers from a Muslim background through our on-the-ground field team. Made up of men and women scattered across the Islamic world, many of whom are former Muslims themselves, this unique team is exceptionally equipped to respond to viewers' questions via phone, texting apps, and social media. They also provide appropriate discipleship courses so that new believers can grow in Christ.
Eslam and Hadel are real, eternal souls who have been saved through your partnership with Leading The Way. Their stories are not uncommon. They are just two of countless new brothers and sisters in Christ who share similar testimonies.
