About My Family

I am Amer Safadi from Jordan. My wife Victoria is from Morocco. We met in September 2009 in Lebanon at a ministry conference. We married in Jordan in 2011.

We have two beautiful twin daughters, Yoanna and Agape. They are 5 years old now.

About My Church Plant

I had been a pastoral assistant for more than 11 years in Jordan, when God call us to move to the U.S. We served God as a family in Wisconsin for two years, visiting and conducting Bible study groups, outreaches, services, and preaching and teaching before planting the first Arabic church in Milwaukee. We thank God that by His grace, we launched the first Arabic church in Milwaukee on July 6, 2019, with my brother, Issa.

After that, God called us as a family to move to Cincinnati to serve among the Arab and Muslim community and to start the first evangelical Arabic church here, too. My brother continues to lead the church in Milwaukee. Praise the Lord, we started the first home group in Cincinnati in October 2019 and, by God's grace, will launch the church by October 2020.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is person who, in response to God’s call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at “Send me.”


Pray for our ministry among the Arab and Muslim people. Pray for our financial situation, as a family and ministry. Pray for Khalid, Rosol and their kids. Please also pray for Mahmoud ( Joseph), Omar, Mohamad and his family, Husain and Nour, Amir and Kristen.


Come to Cincinnati and work alongside us.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
