Jack Sara, President of the Bethlehem Bible College, will join us to unpack Romans 10:13-15 and what it means to be SENT—our theme for MissionsFest 2023.
As president of Bethlehem Bible College in Palestine, Jack’s desire is to equip believers for the work of ministry through leadership training, church planting, and mobilizing the church for the work among Muslims. He travels frequently, teaching on missions and cross-cultural work in the Middle East as well as unity & reconciliation for the body of Christ.
Before coming to know the Lord in 1991, he was involved in political activism, including the Palestinian Intifada. He was imprisoned many times, and began to search for more meaning in life. The Lord placed people in his path who helped reveal his need for Christ, so he committed his life to Christ in 1991. Jack rejoices in his new life and calling. Whereas previously, he was more concerned about political and social freedom, he now cares most about the spiritual freedom of all people.
He holds a BA in biblical studies, an MDiv in pastoral studies and biblical counseling, and a doctorate from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in missions and cross-cultural studies.
