    Pastor Zia Ul Masih is our Ratio Christi leader in Pakistan. He completed his theological education in the city of Lahore. His name means “Light of Jesus.”

  • “I Didn’t Have to Look for a Purpose – I Had It in Jesus”

    “I attended a high school youth group. During this time of my life, however, I was ignoring my faith and drifting away from God. As a result, I was not engaged or eager to learn about the Christian faith.”
