Ghassan Thomas is visiting Ketchikan as a guest of Clover Pass Church. Mr. Thomas was born and raised in Iraq and grew up in a nominally Christian home but had little idea of what it meant to follow Christ as a true believer until his early 20's. Through a series of events and Christian friends he came to know Jesus in a personal way and felt the urge to study the Bible and preach the word of God. After 3 years of Bible School in Beirut, Lebanon, he returned to Baghdad to serve full time. His "church" met in his home around the dinner table in secrete during the Hussein reign. Since the liberation of Baghdad by American troops, Ghassan's church has grown.....considerably, to a church congregation of 1,000 adults, 250 youth and 400 children.
Mr. Thomas will be sharing his incredible story of Christian church growth in Baghdad since Saddam fell and what the future holds for this strategic part of the world. You may meet this man and hear his story this Friday, Aug. 10 at 6:30 along with a potluck meal and this Sunday, Aug. 12 at 10:30AM and 6:30PM church services at the Clover Pass Church at the intersection of N. Tongass Highway and N.Pt.Higgins Rd.
