Neighboring Faiths: A Christian-Muslim Encounter in the U.S.

NeighboringFaiths.jpgInstructor: George Pickens

Dates: August 11, 12, and 13, 2016
Location: Mechanicsburg Church of the Brethren


Islam is the fastest growing religion in the U.S. This course will focus on understanding and experiencing Islam as a local faith practiced by our American neighbors rather than a distant, foreign religion. Islam and Muslims in the U.S. will be reviewed, and then participants will have opportunities to interact with local Muslims. Through a blend of presentations, discussions, and visits to a local mosque and Muslim communities, basic skills in building positive relationships and Christian witness among Muslims in the US will be developed.

Cost: $275
