He is the founder and CEO of Levant Ministries, a nonprofit organization dedicated to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with Arabic-speaking people across the Middle East. He is an author and a frequent speaker at major conferences and events around the world. Prior to establishing Levant Ministries, Fares worked as a senior training specialist, instructional designer and consultant for a variety of chief U.S./international corporations and leading government agencies.

Fares launched the NEXTGEN Leaders Initiative in the U.S. in 2015 for the purpose of equipping and sending Arab-Americans on short and long-term missions to the Middle East. The initiative grew exponentially to include both U.S. and Middle East based missions and soon became a catalyst for Middle Eastern youth and young adults’ participation in missions throughout the region and into the entire world. Fares’ long-term vision is to see thriving churches across the Middle East sending disciple-makers around the globe in order to fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission (Acts 1:8).

Fares leads multiple Levant Ministries teams in various locations in the Middle East and in North America. He holds an MBA and is currently finishing his doctoral degree in Strategic Leadership from Liberty University in Virginia.
