Fikret Böcek

Fikret Böcek

Pastor of the Protestant Church of Izmir

After graduating from the Westminster Seminary in California in 1998, Fikret Böcek, of Turkish origin, returned to his country in 2001 to found a church in Izmir, the ancient persecuted city of Revelation 2:8-11.

Though with many risks he decides to make his church public and open to all. He was arrested several times for his faith with false accusations of being an enemy of the government, as he could not defend himself in a country where the testimony of a Christian is not reliable in court.

He was aware that he was at constant risk of imprisonment (which could even lead to death) and yet he continued to carry out his ministry by supporting believers, who were also persecuted, being aware that he was walking in God’s will.

Jay Smith

Jay Smith

Apologist and Christian evangelist

A graduate in theological studies with a master’s degree in Islamic studies, in 1987 he moved to Senegal for 5 years before returning to England and further deepening his studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London.

For over 24 years, he has also been involved in formal public debates with important Muslim apologists and scholars including Omar Bakri Muhammad, one of the high-profile Islamists often cited by the British media and described as “closely linked to al-Qaeda”.

Smith maintains that a Muslim, after having read all the Islamic Scriptures, the Koran in conjunction with the hadith, tafsire and sira, cannot but become a Salafite, because these texts encourage hatred and violence.
