In response to the evangelistic opportunities made available by the growing diversity of the DFW metroplex and greater North Texas area, Waterview is hosting an area-wide workshop focused on Muslim outreach entitled “Islam in Christ’s Eyes,” taking place on the weekend of March 25 & 26, 2017. The workshop will focus on what Islam says about itself and how we as Christians can lovingly respond. The world around us, both culturally and spiritually, is changing rapidly. We invite your church to step out in faith and equip yourselves with the knowledge and skills to engage those around us, including our Muslim neighbors, with the Good News of Jesus! Come and be a part of our weekend together.
Keynote Speaker & Classes
Our speaker for the weekend is Wissam Al-Aethawi, a former Muslim who has given his life to the Lord and has dedicated himself to building connections to the Muslim community. Wissam is a graduate of the Sunset International Bible Institute and is a frequent speaker for churches and conferences around the country. Wissam will teach 5 separate classes on Saturday, and on Sunday will lead a combined adult/teen Bible class before preaching the morning lesson. Download a Workshop Schedule here.
The workshop is being hosted by the Waterview Church of Christ in Richardson, TX, just north of downtown Dallas and one block south of the University of Texas at Dallas. Our physical address is:
