Sameh Azab, YWAM San Francisco

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.

Sameh currently serves as the Director of SIS (School of Intercultural Studies) at YWAM San Francisco. In this role, he specializes in training Christians and churches to evangelize unreached peoples, especially the Muslim community in the Bay Area.

You can connect with Sameh by emailing him. And if you’d like to financially support his ministry, visit ywamsanfrancisco.org/give, select your payment method, and denote “Sameh Azab” for the donation.
