Dr. Jack Cottrell – SALT Advisor
I am very happy to be able to recommend to you the Kingdom work of George and Zena Al-Salty. I know them personally, and I know that they are sincere and dedicated servants of our Lord Jesus Christ. I have had them both as students in my classroom, and I know that their faith is very Bible-based and theologically sound.
In addition to these essentials, their personal backgrounds and life-experiences enable them to understand the target audiences of their ministry and to design their materials in the most effective way. Your decision to partner with them would be a very wise choice. [READ MORE…]
Dr. David & Candy Faust – SALT Advisors
We met George and Xena Al-Salty about 10 years ago when they were students at Cincinnati Christian University, and we have come to love and respect them deeply. It’s been a privilege for us to interact with them in their home and ours, on the CCU campus, and in a variety of other settings over the years. We have a high level of confidence in them and their ministry.
We appreciate their strong interpersonal skills, the integrity of their character, and the depth of their faith. We have seen the fruit of the Spirit in their lives, and we admire their vision. [READ MORE…]
SM. Jeffrey & Teresa Metzger – SALT Advisors
I’m so happy to recommend George and Xena Al-Salty and their ministry (SALT) to your attention. In my lifetime I’ve never met any couple more intentional, more committed and more well placed to do accomplish their call from God to plant churches, build leaders, and make disciples in the Arab world.
Shortly after I met George I asked him where he wanted to be in five years. He said, “I can’t tell you where I want to be in five years, but let me tell you where I want to be in twenty years. In twenty years I’d like to see a healthy New Testament church planted in every Arabic speaking capitol in the world.” [READ MORE…]
Dr. David Roadcup – SALT Advisor
George and Xena Al-Salty were married in 1997. Since then they planted churches in Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, and Sudan.
After completing their Biblical studies and clinical counseling education at Cincinnati Christian University, they launched an online community to provide mentoring relationships, Biblical education, and counseling services to support the Christians of the Arab world.
I am confident that God has a great plan for their lives. I want to personally invite you to join us as we pray and support them through the SALT Ministries. [READ MORE…]
Dr. Gary Sweeten – SALT Advisor
I am very impressed with the credential and the character of both of these Professional Counselors. First, because George and Xena Al-Salty worked throughout the Middle East establishing churches among Arabic speaking groups in a number of countries.
Establishing a new congregation is extremely difficult in any nation but among Muslim background and Arabic speaking groups it is considered to almost be impossible. Yet, they successfully carried out their call for many years.
Minister Kerry Allen – SALT Advisor
God’s ways are higher than ours. Throughout history He has always had someone whom He could use in special ways for special circumstances. George and Xena Al-Salty are two of those people in the world today.
Through their ethnic heritage, their personal faith in Christ, their formal education, their willingness to serve, their work ethic, and their vision and strategy for reaching Arabs for Christ I wholeheartedly endorse them as servants of Christ. I encourage you to partner with them in the various ministry situations they provide. [READ MORE…]
Minister Jim Bush
I have known George Al-Salty and his wife Xena now for three or four years. In that time I have sat under his instruction on Islam and as a preacher of the Gospel. George is uniquely qualified in this regard and teaches with clear biblical understanding and passion and is a compelling ambassador of Christ in the preaching of the Gospel.
I recommend George highly for any congregation or leadership team desiring to engage the culture through the church with truth and hope rather than through fear. [READ MORE…]
We would love to meet your community.
Please forward SALT information to your Church Leadership and missions committee members. We prepared a few useful links about SALT to include in the introductory email. To learn more, click bellow.
SALT offer seminars about Islam and our strategy of reaching Muslims which we developed based on our 20 years of missions in the Arab world.
o The origin of Islam
o Basic beliefs of Islam
o How Islam views and treat Women
o Current events in the Arab world (Aljehad & ISIS)
o How to build “Gateways” of trust with Arabs and Muslims
Any of these topics can be combined for a 1-3 hours seminar to equip your community
George and/or Xena are available to speak to your community. To request a speaker, please click below.
We believe the best way to reach the Arab world is to follow Jesus Model for ministry. Jesus met people's need on all levels to save their soul.
THIS WEEK POST
Origin of the Name Allah The word "Allah" comes from the compound Arabic word, al-ilah. Al is the definite article "the" and ilah is an Arabic word for "god", i.e. the god. We see immediately that (a) this is not a proper name but a generic name rather like the Hebrew El (which as we have seen was used of any deity; and (b) that Allah is not a foreign word (as it would have been if it had been borrowed from the Hebrew Bible) but a purely Arabic one. It would also be wrong to compare "Allah" with the Hebrew or Greek for God (El and Theos, respectively), because "Allah" is purely an Arabic term used exclusively in reference to an Arabic deity. The Encyclopedia of Religion says: "'Allah' is a pre-Islamic name . . . corresponding to the Babylonian Bel" (ed. James Hastings, Edinburgh, T. & T. Clark, 1908, I:326). I know that Muslims will find this hard to believe so I am now going to make many citations and present the archaeological evidence to prove conclusively that is true. Though this data…
