Lunch with the IPC Foundation Wednesday, September 20 at 11:30 am in the Great Hall and learn from The Rev. Joseph Kassab, the Secretary General of the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon (NESSL), on how the Christian faith provides comfort and hope to the poor and suffering, particular those in the midst of a civil war.
As a Reformed Presbyterian who lived in Syria and Lebanon, Rev. Kassab experienced how to live as a Christian minority among Traditional Eastern Christian Churches and Muslim society. He learned how Christian minorities are called to survive, yet have a positive impact and witness in a context filled with religious tribalism, sectarian society and different forms of Islam.
Rev. Kassab has a Bachelor of Science in Applied Chemistry, a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from Near East School of Theology in Beirut, and a Master of Theology (Th.M.) in Practical Theology from Princeton Theological Seminary. He is married to Rev. Najla Kassab and has three children.
Cost: $10. RSVP to Marsha Harbin at 933-3715 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
