We met George and Xena Al-Salty in 2009 when they were studying Theology and Professional Counseling (MAC) 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. They are bringing help and hope to people from an Arabic background and assisting Christians who want to share the gospel with their Muslim friends.
On a professional level, George and Xena have the skill, drive, and education to succeed. Their cultural background and past experience in Jordan, Iraq, and other parts of the Middle East uniquely equip them for this ministry.
It’s difficult for many of us to know how to make a difference in a world threatened by terrorists and overwhelmed by refugees. One way we can help is by supporting the efforts of SALT to provide online educational and counseling resources rooted in the gospel of Christ.

I have known George Al-Salty and his wife Xena since 2009. 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…]

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…]

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.
Dr. David Roadcup
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…]
Mr. Jeffrey Metzger
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…]

I am very happy to be able to recommend to you the Kingdom work of George and Xena 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…]
