WHY A HFM CONFERENCE IN NYC?
There are an estimated one million Muslims in the metropolitan New York area. Despite much labor, we are still experiencing only the beginning of what the Lord is doing to establish a disciple-making movement among the Muslims of our city. Because of our passion to Love Muslims, Equip the Body, and Connect People for Service, multiple NYC ministries are uniting to host the HEART FOR MUSLIMS conference. This citywide event will feature plenary speakers, breakout sessions, and guided prayer: all focused on effective missional engagement among our city’s Muslim peoples. Register here.
WHY REACH MUSLIMS FOR CHRIST?
GROWTH IN THE MUSLIM POPULATION: There has been rapid growth of the Muslim population in the world. Islam continues to be a major religion in the world with ever increasing numbers 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 trust 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.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Our speakers have years of experience in practical ministry to Muslims. There are plenary sessions, workshops, and panel discussions. You will have the opportunity to hear from various Muslim practitioners regarding what tools and techniques work and what don't. You will also get to hear directly from some Muslim Background Believers on how they came to Christ and how we can more effectively engage Muslims.
