The Stranger at Our Shore: A Conversation with Joshua Sherif

Does your church have a strategy to reach out and share the good news with the stranger among us, to those who have left their home country to find refuge in your community? Pastor Joshua Sherif has a gripping tale of escape from Egypt and a journey out of Islam into new life in Christ and shares some of his incredible story with us.  Joshua now challenges Christians to cast a wider net for discipleship in our communities and to not harden our hearts toward the stranger among us, but to embrace God’s heart for drawing all men to Himself.
