Pre-Conference

 

 

Detroit 10/40 Pre-Conference: May 15-17

The Detroit 10/40 Pre-Conference is a two-day, intensive, classroom and hands-on experience for anyone interested in cross-cultural missions with a focus on Islamic outreach. The experience will be hosted by Grace Baptist Church of Hamtramck in conjunction with Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary. It will include 3 hours of cross-cultural training each morning followed by one afternoon of learning the community and one afternoon of outreach in the Muslim community.

Hamtramck is a city located within the city of Detroit, Michigan. Once a predominately Polish enclave, it is now home to an incredibly diverse population from Bangladesh, Yemen, Ukraine, Albania, Bosnia, Pakistan, and Syria. A recent wave of refugees has blessed the church with many new opportunities to reach otherwise unreachable neighbors with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Hamtramck represents an unparalleled opportunity to develop a heart for reaching the nations for Christ. Don’t miss out on this opportunity! Register here.
