SummerFocus is a valuable opportunity for us to gain a deeper understanding of God’s glorious work of making Jesus known among the nations. Through engaging Bible teaching and hearing from the cross-cultural workers we send out, the whole family will be challenged and equipped to become more involved in mission, both globally and locally. This year we are seeking to understand how you can live so that Muslims can know Jesus. Our children and youth program will complement the sessions to enlarge their perspective of God’s work in the world.
