Dr Michael Youssef marks 30 years of impacting lives

by Eno Adeogun

The Leading the Way ministry leader said he could never have imagined the impact of his decision to flee his home country of Egypt in 1969.

Dr Youssef said: "I was only a young man with an emboldened dream to serve the Lord, but I knew God was leading me.

"He gave me the courage and tenacity to escape a brutal dictatorship and leave my family behind, with merely 100 dollars in my pocket."

He went on to launch a small Atlanta-based radio ministry from his church in the States in 1988.

Today, his books and sermons are accessed by millions across the world through 24/7 radio and television broadcasts, available in 25 languages.

Dr Youssef said the greatest reward from the past three decades of ministry has been the changed lives of so many individuals.

Leading The Way has also helped thousands of marginalized Christians, providing more than £2 million in support through its Help The Persecuted ministry.

More than 116,000 solar-powered audio bibles have also been distributed worldwide, reaching remote regions with the Gospel.
