Elvira Khoury

My name is Elvira. My husband is Pastor Naim Khoury. Together we serve Jesus Christ throughout the Holy Land.

I surrendered to Jesus as my personal Savior when I was sixteen years old. I attended primary and secondary schools in Jerusalem. After marrying my husband in 1976, we went to the United States where I pursued undergraduate and graduate degrees. The focus of my coursework was counseling and Bible in which I earned both a Bachelor's and Masters degree.

When we returned to the Holy Land, my husband and I began a church in Bethlehem, the city of Christ's birth. We started from scratch, living in a two-room apartment. As God has blessed our ministry, He has also blessed our family. Naim and I are proud parents of four adult children and grandparents too!

Since we started the ministry I have been involved in church visitation, teaching Sunday school, organizing our annual Christmas programs and plays, women's fellowship, teaching, choir singing, piano playing, arts and crafts for the V.B.S., secretarial work and more.

Thank you for standing with us as together we take our stand with Jesus in the Holy Land.
