  4. Loving Muslims Seminar on Saturday, April 18th

    Community Updates

    Today the Muslim world is in the midst of the greatest conflict it has ever experienced. Within the last ten years significant numbers of Muslims have been reached for Jesus Christ. International news continually highlights the latest wars within the Muslim world but the spiritual battle within the religion itself is the ultimate battle.

    The seminar is on Saturday, April 18th at 9:00 a.m.-noon followed by lunch and an afternoon outreach until 3:00 p.m. with Tom Doyle. RSVP details will come later.

    Reach out where you are here in Austin
    You don’t have to travel to the Middle East to share Jesus with a Muslim. 4-7 million Muslims are estimated to live in America currently. Some are U.S. born citizens; others have come to the U.S. to experience peace and to seek a better life. Because of God’s sovereign love for these dear souls you may be blessed to have an individual or a family live near you who is a Muslim immigrant or a refugee. Our patient Lord whose will it is that no one should perish may be giving you the amazing opportunity to help them know what it means to have eternal life and peace with God through Jesus Christ.

    Our Speaker:
    Tom Doyle has been involved in Middle East Ministry for 18 years and is the author of the popular books Dreams and Visions – Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World? and Breakthrough – the Return of Hope the Middle East.

    Tom graduated from Biola College in 1979 and Dallas Theological Seminary in 1983. After pastoring churches in Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico for 20 years, he became the Middle East director for e3 Partners/I Am Second, a global church-planting ministry.
