Bright Stars Bethlehem
Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb, President
Bright Stars of Bethlehem (BSB) began as a ministry of our sister church, its president is Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb, former pastor of our Sister Church (Christmas Lutheran). The ministries of BSB reach the greater community. It supports a K-12 school, an after school program for 400-500 children, a parish nurse program reaching over 1200 older adults, and now Dar al Kalima (DAK) University of Arts and Culture, with over 500 students. They are expanding not only into bachelor’s degrees, but potentially masters degrees as well. Note that the Kim and Andrew Forbes Scholarships go toward students in Dar al Kalima University.
