Reaching the unreached, God's way. Presented by A Sure Harvest Ministries.
Pastor Gerald Babanezhad is the coordinator of the Muslim Ministries for the Pacific Union. He is also on the board of advisors to NAD-AMR (Adventist-Muslim Relations), and director/speaker of A Sure Harvest Ministry.
During the morning service, pastor Babanezhad will be presenting some of the profound precedents and models set forth in the New Testament by our Lord Jesus and subsequently by apostles Peter and Paul in reaching the most difficult population groups with the Gospel.
The afternoon presentation/seminar will be an eye opening, focusing on 1) Biblical setting of Abraham's descendency through Ishmael, 2) The teachings of the Quran in regards to the Old Testament (Tawrah) and Hebrew prophets and the Gospels (Injeel), 3) What the Quran says about Jesus Christ (Isa al-Massih) and the incredible honor that it bestows upon the Savior. This information will take down the barrier and equip our members to relate and reach out to Muslims.
A performing artist, pastor Babanezhad will also present a number of piano selections during his presentations. Some of the selections reflect the phenomena of contextualization incorporated in the hymnal arrangements.
