Ariel Ministries

Ariel Ministries, created to evangelize and disciple our Jewish brethren, has been born from necessity to meet an urgent need. Ariel means “Lion of God,” representing the Messiah Yeshua as the Lion of Judah. It is also an alternate name for Jerusalem (Isaiah 29:1) — the city of peace now waiting for the Prince of Peace to return. It was in Jerusalem, in 1966, that a burning seed of desire was planted in the heart of Arnold Fruchtenbaum. On December 1, 1977, in San Antonio, Texas, Ariel Ministries was born and the seed began to bloom.

You can checkout Arnold Fruchtenbaum’s biography at the Ariel Ministries website.

Gary Horton - American Freedom Assembly

Using humor, honesty and a hard-hitting approach, Gary Horton, missionary to American schools, has entertained and inspired young audiences in more than 8,000 high school and junior-high school assemblies across the United States since 1978.

To Gary, the phrase "one nation under God..." is more than simply words in the Pledge of allegiance. Underlying those words is Gary’s understanding of his personal relationship to God through Jesus Christ His Son, and how such a relationship can motivate each of us to accomplish great things for ourselves and our country.

Eduart and Valbona Demo

Eduart and Valbona Demo, children Noel and Sion
Under communism we both grew up thinking that there was no God. After Communism fell in 1991, we both learned that we came from a muslim background. When I (Eduart) was exposed to the Gospel for the first time, I was skeptical about the resurrection of Jesus which I had never heard before. I wanted to know God and thought my background religion would help me. But I became more attracted to exploring the truth of the death and resurrection of Jesus. In 1993 I became totally convinced of this truth and surrendered to Him totally. I (Valbona) heard the message about Jesus at school when some missionaries spoke to our class. I was deeply moved by the great message and was ready to respond to it immediately, knowing I would face many difficulties in the coming years with my parents for changing my faith. As a couple we have been in full time ministry since 2001. It is a great joy to spend our lives telling others about the Gospel as we plant and establish churches.
