WHO WE ARE
In 2009 Dr. Youssef founded THE KINGDOM SAT to present the best of biblical teaching from both the East and West, and to fulfill the vision God had given him: to reach the lost and support the saints in ministering to those in the Middle East and North Africa.
Even before his birth it was evident that God had a vision for Michael Amerhom Youssef. In spite of the doctors’ recommendation to terminate the at-risk pregnancy, his parents chose life after God intervened by sending the family pastor to reassure them that this child would be “born to serve the Lord”. His mother gave birth and lived to see Michael surrender his life to the Lord in 1964 at the age of 16.
Dr. Michael Youssef was born in Egypt and lived in Lebanon and Australia before coming to the United States. He holds degrees from Moore College in Sydney, Australia, and Fuller Theological Seminary in California. Dr Youssef also holds a Ph.D. in social anthropology from Emory University.
Dr Youssef founded The Church of the Apostles in 1987 with fewer than 40 adults and with the mission to "equip the saints and seek the lost." The church has since grown to over 3000. This church on a hill was the launching pad for Leading The Way’s international ministry and its programs are now translated in more than 26 languages.
THE KINGDOM SAT, which is known in the Arab world as AL MALAKOOT SAT, is a satellite television channel launched in 2009 to broadcast the Good News to one of most spiritually hungry parts of the world.
Through its satellite broadcasting, this unique channel provides The Biblical Truth to more than 260 million Arabic-speaking homes and subscribers in the Middle East, North Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. For viewers all over the world, THE KINGDOM SAT makes its programs available through its website, Apple TV, Roku TV, Amazon Fire TV, mobile App, and social media platforms. THE KINGDOM SAT also offers some of its shows in English and French with Arabic subtitles, one of which is “Leading The Way” with Dr. Michael Youssef, which is broadcasted in three languages: Arabic, English and French.
In addition to Dr. Youssef ’s television programs that are translated into Arabic and French, THE KINGDOM SAT offers bible-based programs from leading teachers and pastors from both the west and the east. These are edited, translated and used as effective programs for an Arab audience.
