This is an all day training to help followers of Jesus to better understand the Muslim faith and how to share the Gospel with Muslim friends and neighbors.
We are partnering with E3 Partners, which is a missions and discipleship ministry (the parent ministry for I Am Second) to host a one-day training on understanding Islam and how to build relationships and share the Gospel among Muslims.
The morning session will be an overview of Islam, as well as what they believe about Jesus and Christianity. We will also explore ways to build bridges and opportunities to share The Gospel. In the afternoon we will hear stories from former Muslims about what it was that drew them to Jesus and how Christians shared the Gospel with them.
As a primer to prepare for the training there are three things that we would recommend.
1. Read the book Miraculous Movements by Jerry Trousdale
2. Read each of the following passages 3 times in 3 different translations: Mark 2:1-12; Mark 4:35-41; Mark 5:21-34
3. Write out a brief version of your testimony of coming to faith in Christ.
We are super excited about this opportunity, especially considering the fast growth among Muslims in Collin County and throughout the Dallas area. This training is open to anyone who wants to learn more about how to reach their Muslim neighbors with the Gospel.
