WE MEET IN HOMES IN VARIOUS LOCATIONS ACROSS DUBAI, SHARJAH AND ABU DHABI. EACH HANGOUT HAS A CAPACITY OF 12-16 PEOPLE, THAT GET TOGETHER TO HAVE DISCUSSIONS AROUND THE SERMON, PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER AND SHARE STORIES OF WHAT GOD IS DOING IN AND THROUGH THEM.

I was an atheist but God made Himself known to me through His Word, through His Son Jesus Christ and a personal experience that changed my life. God is real and the love He gave me was enormous that my only response was to reciprocate, to love Him back and share His love to others. My wife Arlene & I host a hangout for young families and young adults.
