Sameh Azab, Crescent Project

Sameh, originally from Egypt, has spent over a decade training and serving missionaries and working among Muslims in the Middle East, Africa, India, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Though born in a Christian home, he did not truly receive Jesus as his Lord and Savior until he was 21. In his ministry, Sameh has at times experienced a great deal of persecution, including being incarcerated and tortured twice for sharing the Gospel.

After many years serving with YWAM, he now works stateside as the San Francisco Area Coordinator for Crescent Project, whose mission is to inspire, equip, and serve the Church to reach Muslims with the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the Glory of God. You can watch Sameh share his story with Reality SF below. And you can support his ministry through Crescent Project here.
