Around the Middle East, sports activities act like an open door into relationships and conversations with youth in Majority communities. In war-torn regions where conflict is a way of life, Arel uses athletics and play to connect with the next generation and share the Gospel.
Arel is the Team Lead for using sports for Youth Outreach in the Middle East. He organizes events for sharing Good News among youth throughout Egypt and in neighboring countries. Arel also provides leadership by creating connections within the community of Christ followers. He has a heart for discipling believers and strengthening the persecuted church in sensitive countries, making ministry trips there to teach and encourage the believers.
