Zaour’s presentation was preceded by a free wine and appetizer reception.
Zaour has been the pastor of the 600-member Presbyterian Church in Damascus for 18 years. Located in the heart of the Old City, the congregation has welcomed Iraqi refugees as well as fellow Syrians who have been displaced from other parts of the country.
Zaour serves on several councils of the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon, and meets regularly with Muslim leaders prominent in Damascus.
