We are excited to announce a new ministry to the SCO family! It has long been a desire of Pastor Trevor and the New Works Team to reach the Arabic speaking community. Recently, the District Advisory Board voted and approved to bring Pastor Gaby Majdalani here from California to begin this new outreach. Please see below for a special message from Pastor Gaby.
Hello everyone, my name is Gaby Majdalani and you can call me Gabe as well. My story begins in Beirut, Lebanon where I was born and grew up as a young boy. In the beginning of 1996, a close friend to my brother, invited him to attend a youth group meeting at the Church of the Nazarene (my brother serves now as the Pastor of this same church). I was interested in going also, so I joined them. It was around November 1996, my brother and I accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. From that day, Jesus changed my life.
I moved to the US in 2003. I am married to Natalie and have three beautiful children, Joanna, Jamie, Jaydon. Recently, I accepted God’s call to pioneer an Arabic speaking ministry in Columbus, Ohio with the SCO District. I am thankful for Pastor Trevor, the DS office, and One Hope Community church for the warm welcome. My family will join me later in the year. We are looking forward to working with you and the bigger church family in reaching people in this area. Pray for us as we seek God’s leadership and wisdom regarding this ministry.
