“In the areas we work in, we ask new believers two questions: #1 Are you willing to be persecuted? Because it’s probably going to happen, most likely by your family. #2 Are you willing to die for Jesus?”
Tom Doyle, Vice President Church and Ministry Partners of e3 Partners, fell in love with the Middle East on his first Biblical tour of the Holy Land. In 1995, he became an official tour guide for the state of Israel and developed a passion for ministering to the Israeli people, Arabs and Jews alike. Tom felt called into full-time ministry there in 2001 and joined e3 Partners as the Middle Eastern branch director.
Tom and his wife JoAnn began working in the heart of the Islamic world shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11. His ministry to pastors in this region has opened many valuable doors for him to build key relationships in places like Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Palestinian territories of Israel. Tom’s relations with both Arabs and Jews have paved the way for many churches to be planted and cultivated.
Tom is an excellent speaker, with several published books on the topic of relations with Muslims and the Middle East. Included in those books are the Dreams and Visions, Standing In the Fire, and Killing Christians.
We had the opportunity to have Tom in studio to discuss how God is chasing after the hearts to those far from Him, and how those people are often persecuted for their decisions.
