Peacekeeper

Bishop Sani Ibrahim Charlie Azar
Sani Ibrahim Charlie (Barhoum) Azar was installed January 12th as bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land (ELCJHL). Azar is the denomination’s fourth bishop, serving previously as pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Jerusalem for 30 years. He succeeds The Rev. Munib Younan who had served as bishop since 1998.

Bishop Azar’s education was pursued in ELCJHL’s schools in Palestine, graduating from the Evangelical Lutheran School of Bethlehem in 1979 and receiving his theology degree in Germany in 1987. He was ordained in 1988.

The ELCJHL began as a German mission church in 1947. It became an autonomous religious body in 1959 and joined the LWF in 1974. It has six congregations in Jerusalem, Ramallah, the Bethlehem area, and Aman, Jordan. Its ministry includes four schools and four education programs, with students from both Christian and Muslim backgrounds. Holy Trinity supports several of these churches and schools.

Bishop Azar said, “This church (ELCJHL) is important for the Middle East and for its members. In spite of the difficult political issues in the region, we are all gathered. This is a good sign for unity and for Jesus Christ in the world.”

Rise Against Hunger
Last year 398,000 volunteers from around the world impacted 1.4 million families through Rise Against Hunger. You can be that volunteer at Holy Trinity as soon as we raise the minimum of $2,900 needed to purchase the food. We are one quarter of the way to this goal. Checks payable to Holy Trinity (with the byline: ‘for Rise Against Hunger’) will get us there!
