Today we are remembering Nabeel Qureshi, a Muslim convert to Christianity, who passed away this week from stomach cancer at the age of 34. In his years as a Christ follower, Nabeel went on to study apologetics and theology, became a speaker with Ravi Zacharias Ministries, and wrote 3 books about his life, faith, and ministry to Muslims.
We’ve also invited our friend, Thomas Messick, from Crescent Project to talk with us about his ministry to Muslims and share his thoughts about Nabeel Qureshi. Thomas tells us about how he came to work with Muslims in ministry overseas and later came to work with Muslims in our community here. He shares some encouraging stories about Muslims turning to Christ.
We talk about the cost of faith for Muslims. To embrace Christ means to leave their entire way of life and to leave their family. Thomas encourages the church to step up and become the family and community that Muslim converts have lost.
Thomas talks about how Crescent Project equips Christians to reach Muslims and invites you to their upcoming national conference.
