Renee is a native of Massachusetts. She earned her Bachelors in Criminal Justice from Boston University. At the end of her time at Boston University, she decided to pursue counseling instead of criminal law and began attending Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary where she received her Masters in Mental Health and Marriage/Family Counseling. Renee has a passion for mentoring youth and young adults and has been leading the youth group at the Arabic Baptist Church in Newton, Massachusetts since it began. She also loves to sing and lead worship with her husband, Fady. When she's not hanging out with teenagers or singing, Renee enjoys coffee dates with friends, the beach, and baking! She is so excited to join the CU team at Harvard this year!
Fady was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt. His family moved to the Boston area in 2002. He earned his Bachelor’s in Urban Studies from Worcester State University. After a radical encounter with Jesus during college he quickly sensed a call to ministry and began to serve at his local church. He holds a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and is ordained with the Southern Baptist Convention. Fady attends and serves at the Arabic Baptist Church of Boston, where his whole family came to faith, and where he teaches the youth and leads worship. When not reading books, Fady enjoys cooking with his wife Renée, watching superhero movies and discussing theology over black coffee.
