WHY REACH MUSLIMS FOR CHRIST?

GROWTH IN THE MUSLIM POPULATION:

No one can challenge the exponential growth of the Muslim population in the world. Islam continues to be the most powerful religion in the world, maintaining its ever increasing number in the Muslim world while invading much of the non-Muslim territories via immigration, culture, and its belief system.

MORE MUSLIMS ARE COMING TO CHRIST THAN EVER BEFORE:

The rise of the Islamic State (IS) in 2014, and sectarian terrorist attacks in the Islamic world have troubled Muslims worldwide.  As a result, there is an ever growing thrust and hunger for Jesus among Muslims. Our  keynote speaker from the 2015 conference, David Garrison stated that "we are living in the midst of the greatest turning of Muslims to Christ in history.

CHRIST IS REVEALING HIMSELF TO MUSLIMS:

Muslims all over the world are reporting seeing visions and dreams of Christ. It is opening new doors to for us to answer their questions and develop relationships.
