The Olive Tree Radio Programme

This week: hear Salim Shalash

Programme 406 – Salim Shalash 2

My guest today is Salim Shalash. He is an Israeli Arab from Nazareth who grew up in a nominal Catholic family. It was the sudden death of a friend that caused Salim to think more deeply about life. He started to study the Bible for himself and ended up going to Bible college. Today he is the pastor of a church in Nazareth … here he describes how it started.

The next OTRF tour to Israel will be from Tuesday 30th April to 9th May 2019

the main reason for the tour will be to meet local believers, people we work closely with, both Jewish and Arab/Palestinian believers. As well we will travel around the country visiting many key Biblical and historical sites to help us understand modern Israel and what God is doing there today.
The tour will be led by Norman and Julia Fisher with Ann Pawson.
The outline itinerary and booking form can be found by visiting our Tour page.

Radio Programmes

‘The Olive Tree’ is a weekly programme. Each programme asks the simple question, ‘What is God doing in Israel and the Palestinian Areas today?’ and the answers will be provided by believers living in the Holy Land, both Jews and Arabs, as well as by others who know the situation well.

Understanding Modern Israel

Since its start in 2008 the purpose of The Olive Tree Reconciliation Fund has always been to build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers in the Holy Land – both Jews and Arabs – with Christians worldwide.
