Events: 2013 COMMA VIII Consultation

Please consider joining our friends at COMMA for their 2013 consultation. COMMA VIII will focus on post-conversion and discipleship, by exploring six areas that make up the world of Believers from Muslim Background (BMBs): personal, interpersonal, family, leadership, spirituality, and geo-political. Many speakers are former Muslims and all are experts in the field.

The consultation will be held Wednesday, October 16 to Saturday, October 19 at:

Grace Chapel
59 Worthern Road
Lexington, MA

Workshop titles include:

  • Safe House for MBBs
  • Role of the North American Church

This is not a Global Initiative: Reaching Muslim Peoples event, but we do believe in what our friends at COMMA are doing:

FromWitnesstoDiscipleship_329-150x150COMMA is a coalition of Christian agencies that network together to reach and disciple Muslims in North America. COMMA exists to network, educate, and train:

  • to identify and facilitate new ministry partnerships and increasing networking among workers in the changing scene in North America;
  • to strategically facilitate and equip local ministries in their witness to Muslims through learning from each other;
  • to strategically motivate, educate and equip North American Christians and agencies in North America to reach out to their Muslim neighbors;
  • to monitor the Muslim agenda for North America and provide a voice concerning it;
  • to promote cooperation in the development of materials and programs.
