Hany & Joanne

Middle East

Hany and Joanne live in the Middle East and are engaged in church planting and leadership development with Impact Middle East. In 2018, Hany founded The Noor Center, a training center that serves refugees through trauma care in addition to educational and occupational training. Noor means “light” in Arabic. The center’s mission is to bring healing, light and hope to refugees and hurting people. Joanne, a midwife by trade, is passionate about seeing women experience health and healing in their bodies, souls and spirits. She provides health education and equips refugee women with practical medical skills, empowering them to reach their communities. Both Hany and Joanne’s vision reaches beyond just meeting physical needs to a longing to see local believers empowered to multiply communities of faith..

  • a spirit of wisdom and discernment for choosing and developing new local leaders and church planters
  • open doors and people of peace in different refugee camps and cities: people who would welcome and champion a movement of planting house churches in the region
  • unity in the body of Christ
  • emotional health and strength in dealing daily with the trauma so many refugees have experienced
