Rev. Rafidi is the founder of Arab Outreach Ministries. His objective is to proclaim salvation through Christ and to advance God's kingdom. He ministers with the love of the Heavenly Father and the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He was born in Jerusalem and raised in the Holy Land. Pastor George was called to share the Gospel among the Arabs when he received Christ as his Lord in 1987. His call was heard at a small church in the old city of Jerusalem, only a few feet from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre where Jesus was Crucified. Rev. Rafidi is an ordained Assemblies of God minister. He attended Jerusalem International Bible College in Jerusalem. He completed his studies through Global University (Berean School of the Bible) in Springfield, MO. George has been the Senior Pastor of Arab Outreach Ministries in Jacksonville, Florida since 1996 and is the President of the Arabic Assemblies of God Fellowship, USA since 2005. His move in 2007 enabled the establishment of the Tampa AOM. His goal is to have an Arab Outreach Ministries in every major city in Florida and throughout the United States.
