Ziyad Bannoura

My name is Ziyad Bannoura. I was born and raised next to Bethlehem in a village called Beit Sahour, also known as Shepherd's Field. Like Dr. Naim Khoury, my family was Greek Orthodox. When I was 19 years old I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and so was born again.

For several years I worked as a land surveyor and tailor. In 1996 Dr. Khoury invited me to become the ministry's part-time leader of youth outreach. Two years later I began full-time ministry with Holy Land Missions.

Today I not only work with young people, I also lead worship, lead Bible studies in Jericho, teach theological courses, supervise our Scouting program and chair the social extension of the ministry called the Bethlehem Start Charitable Society.

I am married to my wife Rawda, we have two grown children and we are also grandparents!

Thank you for standing with this ministry, reaching out to families like ours throughout the West Bank and in East Jerusalem. God bless you!
