Christian Women reaching out to Muslim Women In North America
We are proud to announce the launch of Crescent Project's Women's Training Program: Beyond the Veil.
Beyond the Veil is designed to support and encourage Christian women to engage and promote new relationships with Muslim women. We want to break down walls of mutual suspicion, fear, anger and prejudice. We are dedicated to building bridges of friendship, trust and understanding by focusing on the universal needs and roles of women. We want to inspire honest, sincere and mutually respectful faith dialogue between Christian women and Muslim women.
With a national focus, our seminar framework serves to educate, equip, inspire and empower Christian women towards actions to effectively reach the hearts of Muslim women. Beyond the Veil allows you to gain biblical insight into Islamic history and Muslim beliefs specific to women, while providing useful stories and next steps that help you put the teaching into practice.
Beyond the Veil is a powerful reminder that in every situation we need to be mindful of God's purpose in our lives as women serving Christ. We're committed to helping Christian women realize how they can have an impact, for Christ, on Muslim women in our schools, workplaces and communities.
