The final day at Urbana ’03.

By December 31, 2003

USA (MNN) — Next, in the United States, it’s the final day at Urbana ’03, the largest teen missions conference in the world. Muslim outreach was the focus of one of the sessions.

Jim Tebbe, an expert in the Muslim world told delegates at Intervarsity Christian Fellowship’s Urbana ’03 there are three ways to reach out to an ever growing population. Tebbe addressed the crowd saying, “Ray number one – friendship. The second best way to reach Muslims is, friendship. And then, there’s the third way, the third best way of sharing your faith with a Muslim. Can you guess what it is? Tell me, friendship, that’s right.”

Tebbe says, “Get to know Muslims as individuals.” He says, “Hang where people who are Muslims are. Find the stores where they go. Make friends with them.”

Tebbe says long term relationships with Muslims can be a catalyst in reaching every persons innate desire for spiritual desire for spiritual truth and eventually sharing the Gospel of salvation.

The conference ends tonight with a communion service.
