Ethne Outfitters/EPC World Outreach
2021 MISSION TRIP
And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up
for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
Ephesians 5:2 (ESV)
PURPOSE & APPROACH
The purpose of this mission trip is to introduce team members to ministry among Muslims. Our approach consists of spending six full days in two cities heavily populated by Muslim people; Dearborn and Hamtramck. Dearborn is the U.S. city with the largest concentration of Arab Americans and Arab immigrants, and Hamtramck is the first and only Muslim majority city in the United States. While in the Dearborn and Hamtramck areas our plan is to:
1. Invest our time in classroom training during morning sessions
2. Invest our time in practical training by meeting Muslim people face-to-face during afternoons and evenings
3. Pray for Muslim people and people groups
4. Visit mosques as a way to meet Muslims and learn about their faith
5. Gain exposure to various different Muslim cultures
6. Experience the cultural foods of various people groups
7. Hear testimonies and life experiences of Christian workers laboring among Muslims
8. Learn about various ministry organizations and approaches to ministry among Muslims in the Dearborn and Hamtramck areas
9. Have our own faith challenged and begin to think creatively about ministry among Muslim people in our own home areas
