Peace Feast: A Model for Engaging Muslims in Your Community
Date: Tuesday, May 11th, 2021 at 3:00pm Eastern Time (12:00pm Pacific)
Want your church to engage with local Muslims or other faith groups? Sometimes it seems the only options are flimsy lectures that avoid our differences or harsh polemics without relationships. There is another way! Peace Feasts bring Muslims and Christians together to share food and real, spiritual conversations in a friendly atmosphere. Deron Bauer has helped groups of all sizes have these “heart-level dialogues” across the country, including adapting them to Zoom in the past year. Learn why both sides keep coming back, and how to plan one in your community.

We will be offering a free copy of Broken Hallelujahs to the first five people who register for the webinar.
The World at Your Doorstep: Reaching International Students
Date: Tuesday, June 8th, 2021 at 3:00pm Eastern Time (12:00pm Pacific)
What if the most strategic global missions investment was to welcome the nations as they come to the US as international students. Over 1.1 million international students – many of whom come from difficult-to-access countries and will return as leaders in business, government, education, and culture – study in the United States each year. Several denominations have recognized that international student ministry may be the launch pad for churches to grow in mission and evangelism. Marc Papai, InterVarsity’s National Director of International Student Ministry, shares new insights for churches already reaching out to international students and practical tips for churches that want to get started.
We will be offering a free copy of Crossing Cultures with Jesus to the first five people who register for the webinar.
Reaching the Fastest-Growing Demographic – Multiracial Children
Date: Tuesday, August 24th, 2021 at 3:00pm Eastern Time (12:00pm Pacific)
The church should be a place where children are cherished, seen, and discipled into all Christ desires them to be. Most churches are ill-equipped to serve and to reach multiethnic/multiracial children, who are the fastest-growing demographic in our country. Join us to learn how the church can reach – and what the church can learn from – multiethnic children through a conversation with Chandra Crane, InterVarsity staff and author of Mixed Blessing.
We will be offering a free copy of Mixed Blessing to the first five people who register for the webinar.
