Connecting with Muslim Women

Does your circle of friends include Muslim women? This seminar will explore ways in which male and female Christians can meaningfully connect with Muslim women and their families. We will address contemporary issues that affect Muslim women’s lives locally and globally and what factors lead them to follow Christ.
