While in Boston he completed his Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering as well as advanced studies in Theology with BCNE and other institutions.
Sinote started his first planted church and ministry for the Arabic speaking people in the Boston Area in the basement of Park Street Church at the Boston Common, and moved the services subsequently to West Roxbury, MA where the Lord blessed the ministry for many years. Sinote was the principal person serving in the church and many dear brothers and sisters joined in the ministry. Sinote received many of them on their arrival to the USA, hosted some at his home, and helped many to find jobs and get acquented with the life in the Greater Boston Area. Rev. Sinote was ordained on December 3, 2000 in a powerfull and blessed meeting wittnessed by all church members, Rev. Hanna Ibrahim, Rev. Esper Ajjaj, Rev. Ignatious Memerious Director of the Greater Boston Baptist Association (GBBA).
In 1976, Sinote and the bretheren in the church invited Rev. Hanna Ibrahim who just arrived in June 1976 from Gaza to be the Pastor of the church until Rev. Hanna went to be with the Lord on March 29, 2003. Many people came to know the Lord through the sacrificial and giving personal leadership of Rev. Hanna IBrahim and Rev. Sinote Ibrahim. He subsequently led the difficult renovation project and construction effort for the former lumber warehouse facility on Spring Street in West Roxbury and converted it to a very nice and practical place of worship for the blessing of many people.
In 2005, Rev. Sinote planted the second church when he started the current Ministry of the Arabic Baptist Church Boston at the Newton Corner Worship Center, in Newton Massachusetts with the help of faithful brothers and sisters. In the summer of 2012 and through the dedicated support and work of Rev. Sinote with the owners of the current Newton Corner Worship Center, the owners of the facility gifted the facility to the Arabic Baptist Church Boston under the leadership of Rev. Sinote Ibrahim. The Arabic Baptist Church Boston is expanding its ministry in the Greater Boston Area and the Lord continue to bless the ministry and more people are coming to know the Lord.

The Living Stone and a Chosen People
As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame.”
Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,
“The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone,”
“A stone that causes people to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall.”
They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
