Resurrection Church is governed by a board of elders, led by a senior pastor and his team, and is sustained by every follower of Christ in this local body.

Since 2008, Rev. Dr. Hikmat Kashouh has led Resurrection Church through many blessings and challenges, focusing on disciple-making and serving those in need. Due to his missional vision and servant leadership, Resurrection Church has grown exponentially, transforming its direct community, spreading the Gospel throughout Lebanon, modeling plurality of leadership in the Arabic-speaking world, and impacting many lives both physically and online.

Rev. Kashouh is a pastor, a published scholar, and an inspirational speaker in the MENA region and the West. He earned his PhD in Textual Criticism from the University of Birmingham, UK, and has many publications. He and his wife, Krista, live in Lebanon and have three children.
