Description

GFM Institute is offered the first Friday of every month on a variety of topics to equip Christians to reach Muslims with the love and message of Christ.

In this session, Dr. Albert Reyes, CEO of Buckner International, will present the false dichotomy between evangelism and human welfare that has formed as of the 20th century. He will discuss how this reality in modern missions does not reflect the biblical account of how Jesus of Nazareth carried out his ministry.
