What would your summer mission trip look like?

The Lord has brought many Muslim immigrants and students in a diaspora to the USA. Now they are our neighbors! As a result, the opportunity to make disciples from among unreached Muslims. This is a strategic moment to see God raise up multiplying disciples of Jesus from among the nations while remaining in our own culture.

We are engaging with Muslim people from all over the world, but predominantly Arab nations. The live all around us in this urban American city. Our goal is to see groups of Muslims study the scriptures, become obedient disciples of Jesus, and gather into house churches which God will also use to reach back to their unreached Muslim countries of origin.

We are committed to living out our faith among the diaspora Muslim community while we pray and trust the Lord to lead us to those open to studying the Scriptures and seeking to be disciples of Jesus.  As a team, we engage others through natural ways of living in our community.  We connect through a coffee shop, international student housing, through frequenting local businesses, helping out with English language classes, inter-faith dialogues and any other creative way we can find.

As an Edger, you will connect with English-speaking Muslim international students and immigrants alongside our team. You will also learn about how we use business in ministry and connect with Muslims as you work in our coffee shop and help with our international student housing.
