About My Family

Hello, my name is Maher Indraws. I am married to my wife, Rania. We have three kids: Youtham, Mirna and Emy.

We are originally from Egypt and moved to the United States six years ago.

About My Church Plant

I was a math teacher for 14 years, then God called me to go into full-time ministry. Our mission is to bring Jesus into the home of every Arabic-speaking person in our community!

We just planted a new church in West Palm Beach, Fla., and are praying that God will do mighty things.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a 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


Please pray for us as we strive to help Arabic-speakers get to know Jesus, no matter what their background is. Also, please lift us up in prayer because we need monthly support in order to buy a house and cover our family's needs. Please feel free to reach out if you would like any more details.


Connect as a Sending Church or a Supporting Church with a missionary’s work. Commit to long-term missions support with your missionary partner. Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
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.
