Learning outcomes for mini-seminars:

  • Gain a good overview of Islam and key points of difference between Christianity and Islam (and between Jesus and Muhammad)
  • Understand the radical Islamic agenda and how it is impacting the West
  • Understand how and why Christians are persecuted under Islamic conditions, and why this is increasing around the world
  • Understand the core spiritual issues involved in engaging with Islam and Muslims
  • Understand how God is reaching Muslims with the good news of Jesus, why this is accelerating – for example the Iranian church is said to be the fastest growing church in the world – and what this means for the mission of local churches everywhere.

The teaching in the mini-seminars is specifically tailored by a pastor for pastors.
All mini-seminars are the same presentation.
