Dr. David Garrison

For more than 30 years Dr. David Garrison has been a missionary pioneer. His focus has been global strategy with assignments spanning much of what has been called the 10/40 Window. Garrison’s efforts to understand and join God’s global mission have led him to study a dozen languages and travel through more than 100 countries. His recent book “Wind in the House of Islam” gives an encouraging insight into how God is working among Muslims around the world.
Garrison has a PhD from the University of Chicago and a Masters degree from Golden Gate Seminary.

Ramez & Rebecca Atallah
General Secretary of the Bible Society of Egypt.
Born and raised in Egypt, Ramez moved to Canada with his family as a teenager. He came to know Christ through a local church in Montreal, and grew in his faith through the McGill Christian Fellowship and eventually married Rebecca, a fellow student who was brought up as an MK in Haiti. In the seventies he led the French and English ministries of Inter-Varsity in Quebec. In 1980, Ramez and Rebecca, moved to Egypt. While he pioneered IVCF ministry among students, Rebecca started ministering at the ‘Mokattam Garbage Village’ Church which is now - with its remarkable Cave Churches - the largest church facility in the Middle East. As General Secretary of the Bible Society of Egypt since 1990, Ramez developed this ministry to creatively reach out with the Scriptures to the people of Egypt. Their vibrant love for the Lord will inspire us to follow suit as they share with us the many principles they have learned in a lifetime of ministry.
