REaching Indians (Hindu)
Hosted By: Cru’s Naya Jeevan Ministry (means “New Life” in Hindi/Urdo)
Led By: Cathy Douglass, who started the Naya Jeevan Project in California in 2003, Cru’s first full-time ministry outside of South Asia dedicated to reaching South Asians, particularly those of the Hindu faith. Cathy authored the “Love Your Neighbor” evangelism seminar, which has been taught to over 2,500 people on four continents since 2008.
When: Thursday, September 26, 8:45am - 4pm
Where: Ridgecrest (Room TBA)
Description: Do you love your Indian neighbors and want to see them follow our Lord Jesus?
Perhaps you identify with any of these feelings:
“I see Indians all around me in my city, but I don’t know how to talk with them.”
“I give them my gospel presentation, but I know they’re just viewing Jesus as one of their many gods.”
“I’d like to share the gospel with Indians, but doesn’t that take special literature or strategies?”
Well, yes, it does take some learning, some understanding of what strategies work and which ones don’t, and some practical role-playing in best practices. But, you will leave this training day empowered to share the good news with South Asians in your sphere of influence.
This pre-conference will incorporate much of the “Love Your Neighbor” curriculum, so that you can know the joy of sharing the good news of Jesus with your Indian neighbors in a way that is attractive and non-threatening and will leave them wanting more.
Register by emailing Cathy Douglass (Please indicate “Reaching Indians Pre-conference” in the subject line.)
Wednesday Night Dinner at Ridgecrest: Our group will eat together on Wednesday night in the dining hall from 5:30-6:30 so we can get to know one another.
Note: Since this pre-conference starts Thursday morning, it will be necessary to add an extra night’s housing and several meals to your Ridgecrest reservation.
