of Life Ministry
The Way of Life Ministry
is a non-denominational Evangelical ministry. It is a large ministry
based essentially in Cairo, Egypt, yet has a great impact on Arabs in
different parts of the world, especially in the Arab World and other
neighboring Middle Eastern countries as well.
Like any other genuine work of God, this ministry was started as
a small nucleus in the late eighties as a small home group
for discipling young men who had only recently accepted Jesus as their
personal Savior. At that time we were ministering within the Orthodox
With time, this small nucleus grew and was transformed from a small
group holding its meetings in a house into a larger meeting in a small
hall. It was then that God provided us with a meeting place in the
Pentecostal church in Shoubra, Cairo in 1992 where we started our weekly
Wednesday meeting there. And by God’s grace, the small numbers
multiplied. Hundreds of young men and women and even families
started to join and the meeting kept growing week after week.
And by God’s grace this meeting has grown into a large and effective
ministry where a large number of the attendees began to
participate in the various roles in the Ministry such as praise and
worship leading, music, counseling, small group leading, discipleship
groups, administrative roles, audio and video services, translation,
building and updating the website…etc.
Team in 2000
In the New Year Celebration of 2001 the Lord gave us a name for our
ministry: “The way of Life Ministry”. We believed that this name
was the most adequate as it summarized the aim and vision of our
ministry that Christ Jesus is the only way for salvation and eternal
This ministry was founded and led from the start by Dr.
physician who became a full time minister since September ’91. In
September ’93 he got married to Ghada Ghali who was also a full
time minister since ’92. Since that time, they began to lead the
ministry together as partners in training the ministry team and
living totally by faith.
In addition, they studied together in The Pentecostal Theological
Seminary. After their graduation in 2003, they became lecturers
in the same seminary.
In 2003 as the ministry expanded, God also expanded our ministry team
and blessed us with a full time minister called Hanna Saad. He
participates with us in the ministry and he carries many
responsibilities. And so we grew from a small home group to a
multiple field ministry. Hallelujah!!
Lately, the number of people in our meeting have been growing to
the extent that the meeting hall, the gallery and the seats in the
overflow are no longer enough to host the growing numbers of people. Now
there is no room for people to stand even on their feet in the
aisles and the church entrance.
1- Our first and foremost aim is winning lost souls;
seeking lost sheep from different backgrounds, particularly in our
country and in the region, where a large number of souls are deprived
from the true Gospel. Our primary goal is proclaiming the Cross-and
God’s free gift of salvation. We are striving to preach the Good News by
all possible means, taking every opportunity whether by preaching,
written material, audio and video cassettes, our Arabic website,
Christian satellite channels...etc to reach those who do not hear of the
love of Jesus. This is done in weekly meetings, in several-day crusades
or through the various media resources.
2- The maturity of believers and their spiritual edification,
keeping the church constantly on fire for the Lord to serve Him more and
more and to further His kingdom.
For this reason, we concentrate on preaching deep Biblical truths,
studying and teaching the Word of God whether in our weekly meeting or
in our various prayer and discipleship small groups.
3- Leadership Training & Developing of Ministers: We believe in
the importance of preparing new generations of leaders for the
continuation and the enlargement of God’s work through their
participation in the ministry. For this reason we are called to
implement teaching courses, and minister’s conferences for training and
self-development. The majority of the participants in these events are
from our team, but there is another ratio of attendees coming from other
ministries both in and outside Cairo. They attend these courses with the
aim of being equipped so that they can go back to their churches with
new enlightenment in the word of God.
4- Intercession & Spiritual Warfare: We do believe in
intercessory prayers accompanied by spiritual warfare and their
necessity for overcoming the kingdom of darkness that tries to oppose
and hinder the achievement of these goals. We also believe that prayer
is the key that releases the glorious work of the Holy Spirit on earth.
This is why we have a weekly prayer and intercession meeting for the
whole ministry team, besides other smaller weekly intercessory prayer
meetings. We also hold various prayer conferences throughout the
The Different Fields of
- Our weekly meeting: We have a weekly meeting every Wednesday in
an area called Shoubra in Cairo downtown, which is one of the most
overpopulated suburban neighborhoods. The objective of this meeting is
to encourage and build up Christians. It has become one of the most well
known meetings in Cairo and has a great spiritual impact on souls. Many
Christians from different churches attend this meeting to receive
Usually there is a simultaneous interpretation in English for the
foreigners attending our meeting, as we believe that God will further
use our ministry even beyond the borders of our vision.
- Crusades Held in Cairo: We
hold between 2 or 3 annual evangelistic crusades in Cairo where
each one lasts for 3 days. In such evangelizing events,
entire team works together to invite new people and take care of all the
necessary preparations leading up to the event. Praise God that many who
are thirsty come to know Him.

- Crusades held in Other Cities:
Our ministry is keen to hold many evangelistic meetings and crusades in
different parts of the country starting from Alexandria in the north to
Luxor in the south, passing through the Delta, Fayoum, Minia, Assuit and
Souhag (Upper Egypt) and so on. Also we support other ministries in
their crusades and outreaches either by preaching the word or through
our praise team’s participation.

where a big number of Christians who attend from all over the country.
Annual Conference Feb 2006
- Ministers’ Conferences:
Additionally we hold conferences for the ministers, which include
specific teaching for building and training leaders, generation after
generation. A number of ministers are attending such conferences from
within our team ministry as well as people from other ministries.
- Teaching and Discipleship Courses:
Our ministry also concentrates on teaching the Word and doing follow up.
We have a three level discipleship course or Bible school that we hold
after every crusade for new believers as well as mature believers. This
course starts with a beginner’s basic level for newly beginning
Christians where we deliver a Biblical teaching foundation and all other
preliminary subjects needed for strengthening new Christians and having
them abide in the truths of a godly life. And it ends with the third
level that concentrates on training and preparing a minister of God.
Also we pay great attention to home groups and consider that area one of
the most important aspects for fellowship, unity and the edification of
- Two Teaching Books:
The Lord also has given us the privilege to publish two big teaching
books suitable for self-study and home groups as well.
we have many publications
such as booklets, audio & video tapes, CDs, worship tapes.. etc
granted us with a lovely team for children’s ministry
has a vision in their hearts to bring a new generation for the Lord.
The number of the children varies from 30-40 in normal meetings and
reaching about 100-150 during the crusades and great events.
we had special events for the youth through the last years,
since October 2005, we began to have a youth ministry depending
a youth team who is burdened with ministering to their generation. Since
that time, we held two big events.
Since 1993 Dr. Youhanna and Ghada Ghali have started to move to
different parts of the Arab World accompanied by a few members of the
team to hold conferences and to teach. They’ve traveled to Sudan,
Lebanon, Syria, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Jordan.
- Web site: In 2002 we constructed a website that is
mainly in Arabic, but also contains some English translated articles for
English speakers. We aim, through this site, to reach more and more
people from different backgrounds.
This site includes: teaching materials, booklets, updated audio & video
sermons & songs, articles about who Jesus is, His divinity, and prayer
requests that are forwarded to our intercessory meetings, answering
questions and counseling to everyone who writes to us on the website,
and periodic newsletters. Till now around 5000 people have
subscribed their names and some of them are from different religious
- Satellite TV: At the end of 2004 the Lord put in our hearts the
dream of broadcasting our meeting on satellite channels. And despite the
difficulty of that matter due to financial reasons, by God’s grace in
March 2005, the Lord opened for us a door to broadcast our weekly
meeting on satellite TV surrounding the Arab World & Middle East. Now
our program is broadcast on TBN Arabic Channel 4 times a week and covers
all the Arab World, Middle East and Europe.
And in October 2005 our program was broadcasted on El Karma Channel that
serves the Arabs in all North America.
In March 2006 it was broadcasted 3 days per week on the Spirit Channel.
Because of these programs we receive a lot of e-mails and prayer
requests from most of the Arab countries and from all over the world.
and future projects:
new wide building for the ministry:
over the past years, the number of our weekly meeting was greatly
increasing to the extent that our current place is not containing the
attendees anymore. The entire place became packed and people can’t find
any room even to stand on their feet. Nowadays we’re praying for a new
and larger place in order to contain the growing numbers together with
every current and future activity of the ministry. And we do believe
that God will accomplish this project by His grace.
we are in the stage of getting ready to start soon in preparing a
new place as a head office and center for the ministry that will
be a place to conduct the various and growing activities of the
ministry therein. For, by the grace of God, now we have several
activities such as teaching courses, cell groups, children’s ministry,
and Sunday school, in addition to the activities of the praise team, the
theater, the audio and the video teams to rehearse and pray together.
Therefore it became a necessity to get this new center prepared
for the needs of these activities even though we know that it
won't contain our common weekly meeting.
Therefore support us with your prayers that the Lord would get these
projects done, knowing that
promised is faithful and able to do regardless
how difficult or even impossible they are, for He is the God of the
impossible. But if it is within your capacity and if you felt that God
is burdened your heart to support these projects, then please do not
hesitate to do whatever God wants you to do. And whether your offer is a
little or a much, God will delight with honest offers no matter how
small they are. Just remember how Jesus considered the two very small
copper coins of the poor widow
much more than all the others' offerings, for
given out of her poverty.
New programs on the satellite channels:
end of 2004, we started to have our vision of producing a program
that will be good enough to be aired on the satellite channels. This
vision was like a dream, by all means, beyond our abilities to be
fulfilled. At this time we were not having any financial capacities,
technical experience, or even any supporting associations to help us.
Despite of that, God has encouraged us to take the first step by faith
without knowing what He was going to do. By the beginning of March
2005, God had given us the privilege to broadcast our first program
aired on the satellite channels. Praise God! We can boldly
testify that whatsoever is impossible to us is so easy to be done
by the God of all blessings and miracles.
Although God has provided us with many of the primary required
equipment, such as the digital video cameras that enabled us to launch
our meetings on the satellite, but we still have an urgent need for
more advanced equipments that will facilitate and speed up the
production of our programs with higher efficiency.
Besides, we have some new ideas for a new program interviewing with the
youths and families, but this will require more advanced equipments,
plus setting up a Studio for fulfilling this project.
of all you can support us by your prayers for we believe in its great
power and effect. Moreover you can be a partner with us by your
financial support unless the Gospel will be hindered. This is what the
Apostle Paul was teaching about in every church he went.
We believe in the Bible as being the infallible living word of
God; in its verbal inspiration since “holy men of God spoke as they were
moved along by the Holy Spirit”; that it is God’s complete revelation of
Himself, and that it is the only source of truth and spiritual
We believe in one God, the Omnipotent, the Omniscient, the
Omnipresent, and the Creator who has absolute authority over all
We believe in the Trinity; the Father, the Son and the Holy
Spirit, one in substance, equal and united; one God.
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God, who appeared
in the flesh when He took a complete human body; born of Virgin Mary
without sin; that He is the Son of God, and the Son of Man, Jesus Christ
our Lord; that He died on the cross for our sins and rose again on the
third day, ascended into heaven and sat down at the right hand of the
We believe that though man is created in the image of God, but because
of sin he becomes a sinner by nature, as inherited from Adam, and
that sin separates him from God and puts him under eternal judgment. We
believe in the salvation of Jesus Christ through His death on the
cross as a substitute for all humanity, to pay for the sin of the whole
world. We believe that he is the only way to salvation, and that
whosoever believes in Him receives remission of sins and eternal life.
And we believe that this salvation is free, through grace of God and is
undeserved by man; is not earned by works but is received by grace
through faith in Jesus Christ and His atoning death.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Life-Giver, the Comforter,
equal with the Father and the Son, who came at Pentecost to institute
the church, and who lives in true believers as His temple since
receiving Salvation; that He is the Comforter, life-giver and the source
of encouragement, joy and peace.
We believe in the infilling of the Holy Spirit, as an important
experience and the source of spiritual power, fruit and gifts for
serving the Lord and for the furthering of the Kingdom, and that the
Holy Spirit is the one who confirms the church and the work of the Lord
with power, signs and wonders.
We believe in the sanctification of born again Christians through
the Holy Spirit. We believe in the importance of living a holy life in
the Lord and fully surrendering to him. We believe that Christians have
to be spiritually alert and sincere, separated from evil and the spirit
of the world; that this is the only way to enjoy a life of power and
We believe in physical and inner healing, and the life of full
freedom in Christ; in spiritual and material blessings as a result of
the redemptive work of Christ on the cross.
We believe in the universal church, which is the body of Christ
in all the earth, the true believers from every church and denomination,
regardless of their names and differences. We believe in the importance
of love and unity among true believers, regardless of their denomination
and personal beliefs. And we believe in the local church,
the assembling of believers together as the real place for their growth,
fellowship, worship and serving the Lord.
We believe in the Great Commission, given by the Lord to His
church to preach the Gospel to the ends of the earth, and to all nations
and people by the power of the Holy Spirit for the salvation of sinners
from hell and winning souls to the Lord.
We believe in the second coming of Christ that he will ordain the
church to be with Him in glory. We believe in eternal judgment for the
world and sinners, and that believers will not come under judgment but
will stand before the throne of Christ to give each an account of his
