NEW BOOK FROM DR. MICHAEL YOUSSEF

In places like France, Muslim background believers struggle to receive the spiritual support and fellowship they need as new converts. Their Muslim families reject them due to their faith in Christ, and many mainstream churches are ill-equipped to support them because they don’t speak Arabic or understand Islamic culture. Where can these new believers find the encouragement they so desperately need?

Your support is helping former Muslims receive world-class discipleship in areas where access to churches is limited.

 

Leading The Way
’s field team coordinator Pierre recently networked with a local church in France to secure a space for a converts-only Bible study. Now this weekly meeting is helping these former Muslims grow in their new faith in a group designed specifically for them. As they meet each week to study the Word of God in Arabic and sing worship songs in their heart language, a movement of God is growing.

This is just one of many underground church movements your partnership is fueling through Leading The Way. Daily, your support is helping former Muslims receive world-class discipleship in areas where access to churches is limited. Through our 24/7 international field team, believers are being discipled every day through:

  • Face-to-face meetings
  • Online church gatherings
  • Convert-focused Bible studies
  • Systematic discipleship courses and more

Due to government control and surveillance, face-to-face meetings in many closed countries are impossible. In these regions, online discipleship groups are becoming the norm. Every member of our field team is involved, making use of online platforms like WhatsApp and Skype for an eternal impact. In these close-knit, online spaces, new believers can encourage each other across geopolitical boundaries while being discipled by our theologically trained field team. Today, groups like these are meeting all over the Muslim world. Will you pray for them?

Thank you for your continued prayers and partnership, which enables us to continue this vital work.
