Pastor Atef Saman was born in Syria, and his wife Raedah was born in Jordan.  Both immigrated to the United States separately.  They were both Christians when they met in an evangelical church in Boston Massachusetts and were married.  When Atef proposed to Raedah he asked if she would join him to build a church in their home.  Raedah agreed! They have great love for the Arabic speaking people and enjoy opportunities to serve them. 

In 2002, they moved to Jordan and in 2006 Atef graduated from Jordan Evangelical Theological Seminary.   In 2008, Pastor Atef was ordained in the Arabic Baptist church in Massachusetts, and in 2011 he pastored his first church in Lowell, Massachusetts USA, CCF Arabic Ministries, a part of CCF Ministries.

In 2012 they were sent out by CCF to plant Arabic churches throughout Europe.  They moved to Paris, France where they are pastoring the first Arabic church plant (CCF Paris), and they share a passion and vision to continue to reach Europe and the Middle East with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
