Synergy Commons Webinar: Collaborating to Reach the Muslim World with the Gospel (Fouad Masri)

Collaborating to Reach the Muslim World with the Gospel:

Can partnerships produce a lasting impact on the Muslim world? In this webinar, Fouad Masri, CEO of Crescent Project, discusses the challenges of leading in the midst of rising fear and anger towards Muslims and the power of partnership to overcome these challenges and reach Muslim Communities with the gospel.

Drawing on Crescent Project’s model of collaborative ministry, Fouad shows how collaboration has amplified their ability to effectively support Muslim outreach efforts and equip the church to reach the Muslim world with the Gospel.

Ministry and network leaders will also appreciate Fouad’s Heads, Hands, and Heart questions for effectively preparing your organization to engage with Muslim communities.


Key Points:

  2. Collaboration and partnership significantly expand how God can work through you, increases ministry effectiveness, and grows your ability to make a Kingdom impact.
  3. Your ministry mindset can make a huge difference in your effectiveness — especially among Muslims.
  4. Evaluate your organization’s beliefs, motivation, and approach to reaching Muslims. Is it based on fear or love?
