Training can help people share Jesus with love, power, and authority!

I want to share with you a few students’ testimonies from a recent training at CTS in Brussels: “After this course, I grew in love for the Muslim community. I realized that I should value and develop relationships with my Muslim friends.”  “It was eye opening to learn to love Muslims and show them respect as a way to see them come to Christ.”  “The Holy Spirit showed me that Muslims are normal people like anyone else who is in need of a Savior.” These students’ testimonies reflect the transformation that took place in their hearts.

20th Anniversary! Our Latest Jonah Initiative Training in Baguio!

Twenty years ago Islam did not have the global consciousness it has now. The terrorist attacks in New York City in September 2001 definitely brought it to the forefront. Today, we find a strong presence of Islam in nearly every corner of our world and that includes the Muslim-populated countries of Asia. It is evident to us on this 20-year anniversary of The Jonah Initiative training in Baguio, Republic of the Philippines, that Global Initiative leaders were sensitive to God’s leading in 1997. They took the initiative at that time to make Baguio an annual event to train workers for…

They treat their…

The Refugee Journey – How Can The Local Church Welcome Refugees?

– first published on January 26, 2016 ¿Cómo puede la iglesia local dar la bienvenida a los refugiados? Former Muslim Background Believer (MBB) Fred Farrokh suggests 7 ways that the local church can welcome refugees: MBBs can be a gift to the local church since many MBBs are familiar with overcoming persecution. So, the local church should see MBBs as people who can contribute to the life of the church. In many cases, the MBB may have lost family connections through immigration or being disowned for his/her faith in Christ. The local church needs to create a sense of family…
