Equipping Christians to work and serve in Muslim communities

If you are a Christian currently involved in, or preparing to work in, a Muslim community, you will find this course invaluable. Or if you would simply like to study Islam, you will also enjoy this course.

Helping Christians to study Islam and relate to Muslim friends intelligently, sensitively and practically

In recent years, it has become more important to study Islam, as it has attracted increasing international political and media attention. The internet and global migration have also facilitated more Muslim–Christian interactions, and dialogue between Islam and Christianity. Within this context, this course aims to equip Christians with:

  • a thorough knowledge of the roots, realities and perspectives of Islam
  • new insights from speakers with experience and academic understanding
  • a toolbox of sensitive, informed, bold and biblical responses that bless Muslims with the love of Christ
  • plenty of real-world examples of how to develop impactful Christian–Muslim friendships
  • an interactive learning experience that involves case studies, role plays and other practical activities.

This course attracts students of all ages, with varying interests, from different ministries, cultures and countries, and from many walks of life. Each one has unique experiences, questions and circumstances.

You’ll get to know your peers over classroom discussions and mealtimes and through having fun together. There will also be time for private study and to share personal experiences and insights.

This course is a great addition to the offerings in our En Route programme.  It is also ideal for those who are:

  • ministry practitioners
  • about to join a project team working in a Muslim community
  • moving to live in a Muslim environment
  • considering mission service.

There is a 10% discount for current students and a 5% discount for All Nations alumni.
