Ministry

Believers, pastors, ministry leaders, churches in North America. All have a Biblical mandate to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

And we want to.  But often, we just don’t know how.  Especially when it comes to missions and Muslims.

Within our own cultural context, we are often well equipped to do evangelism – to share with others the hope that it within us. But when it comes to sharing that hope into the cultural context of someone who is significantly different than us, then it becomes especially challenging. We share, but it seems to misfire somehow.

That’s because its missions, not evangelism. Both are about sharing the Gospel, but there are some big differences. And those are the cultural, religious, linguistic and even ethnic distance and distinctions between us as speaker and our new friends and acquaintances from whom we are different.

And that’s where we come in.

Ephesians 4:11-12 tell us God, in His great wisdom, gave “some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry….”  Notice that pastors and teachers are distinct from apostles or missionaries. These are different roles and giftings in the Body of Christ.

Our calling is to equip God’s people to cross cultural, religious and linguistic differences between speaker and hearer in dialogue, empowering our witness.

So how can we help you?!  Check out our various ministry offerings below. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Just ask.
