Muslims from around the world are moving into our neighborhoods, working in the same companies, and studying alongside us in schools. This is an amazing act of God as He brings these precious people into our sphere of influence. Many Muslim neighbors may struggle with language barriers or feel lonely after leaving family behind in their home countries. Or, in the case of refugees find themselves fearful or suspicious of American culture. For others, they may be curious about Christianity and pursuing Jesus.
Whatever the case may be, “Journey to Jesus” is the perfect starting point for helping Christians connect with all types of Muslims (cultural and conservative). Wheaton College developed the DVD curriculum that is available to purchase.
Through this resource, your church or small group will be equipped to reach out to people of other faiths, build meaningful relationships with them, and effectively move them toward Christ.

With the violent end of Malaysian flight 17, the conflict in Ukraine has gained more international notice. However, the lives lost in that flight represent only a portion of the lives being impacted by the conflict. The Logos Center in Kiev, originally founded to minister to orphans, those suffering from poor health, and the homeless, has added a new ministry in recent days—caring for refugees who have fled from the conflict in Eastern Ukraine.
Watch this video to learn more about the Kiev Logos Center.
“I must confess,” admits Joe Schimmels, “that ‘leading my family’ used to mean that I invested time in study and prayer and then delivered the spiritual goods as we sat around the living room. But this way of life is not reproducible, because they are dependent upon me. I want my kids to have more than biblical information; I want them to read the Bible to relate to the person of Jesus.” Hear more of what Joe has to say at EFCA Today.
