We live in a multi-cultural society, but many of Christians are hesitant to engage with those of other faiths, partly because we don’t understand their belief system. Jay Moon and Bud Simon are missionaries and professors who will help us adapt our evangelistic efforts to fit the cultural contexts of those around us.
EQUIPPERS - Our next ZOOM MEETING is September 23! REGISTRATION DETAILS ARE IN YOUR E-MAIL INBOX.
