A Note from our pResident
Reaching Muslims is certainly the toughest challenge facing the church of Jesus Christ today. In my forty years of ministry among Muslims, I have experienced both success and failure. Our passion is to train the next wave of missionaries and equip them with knowledge, faith, and boldness. Many of our students leave with this comment: “My ministry will never be the same.” I invite you to take the time to be well-prepared to face the challenge of Islam. You will be glad you did.
