Christians Connecting With Muslims

Last month, we had a sold-out crowd for our workshop on “Understanding Islam.” Mr. Fouad Masri, founder of the Crescent Project, led the discussion that provided an overview of Islam, Muslim evangelism, and tools for an effective witness. This was the inaugural session for the Project Bridges – LBC |Capital Workshop Series. As more and more Muslims are moving into the Washington, D.C. metro region, attendees felt the discussion was quite timely and helpful to their ministry work.

Many Christians have responded to Muslims in various ways, but all too often, without the compassion that characterized Jesus. The seminar sought to replace fear and intimidation with love and gentle boldness. A key point in the discussion highlighted the fact that while Christianity and Islam are different, they also share similarities. Mr. Masri helped attendees understand how to use those similarities to build a bridge to share the gospel of Jesus Christ. There’s no time like the present to dialogue about developing a strong Christian witness with our Muslim neighbors!
