Reach Global Weekend

Reach Global Sunday
Sunday, October 8 | 9:00 am + 11:00 am | Worship Center
Guest Speaker: Tom Doyle, Middle East Director for e3Partners
Global terrorism is at an all-time high. But that’s not the whole story. A new Jesus movement is erupting around the world, and persecuted believers are leading the way. Like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in King Nebuchadnezzar’s fiery furnace, these believers are fearless and not alone. So, the question is this: “Is Christianity winning or losing?” The battle is fierce and not letting up. Yet this is one of our finest hours.
As the Vice President and Middle East Director for e3 Partners since 2001, Tom's experience in the heart of these Islamic nations is extensive. Tom brings God's astounding work in these nations to light. Tom shares fresh, compelling, and thought-provoking reports of God's activity in the epicenter of terrorism and global conflict known as the Middle East.
Tom graduated from Biola College in 1979 and Dallas Theological Seminary in 1983, and is a licensed guide for the State of Israel with over 70 trips. After pastoring churches in Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico for 20 years, he became the Middle East director for e3 Partners/I Am Second.
His wife of 37 years, JoAnn, serves with him at e3 as the director of Not Forgotten, a ministry to women of the Middle East. She will be sharing with our women on Saturday, October 7. (More info to come.)
Tom has written eight books including the best-selling: "Dreams and Visions-Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World?" and, "Killing Christians-Living the Faith Where it is Not Safe to Believe.
Women with a Missions (WWAM) is a multi-generational group of women who meet monthly to learn more about our missionary families. WWAM is a way to keep up-to-date with missions and connect personally with the missionaries by way of missionary speakers, videos, and correspondence from around the world.
After the group session, the women break into small groups to pray for specific missionaries. WWAM meets on the third Thursday of the month at 9:00 am and again at 7:00 pm in the Fireside Room.
