Top Five Recommendations from The Lausanne Movement – North America:
Denominational leaders to re-think the geography of missions to include the fast-growing Muslim Diaspora found within our borders. Mission agencies and denominations should consider releasing funds, support, resources, and networks for these workers.
Islam is here to stay and many churches will have Muslim seekers attending services. Therefore, seminaries and Bible schools need to integrate reaching Muslims into all curricula.
- Believers from Muslim Background (BMB):
BMBs have natural contacts with their own community and family. There needs to be better equipping BMBs in Muslim ministry.
- Student Ministry:
Over 50% of Muslims are between the age of 18-30. The largest percentage of Muslims comes to the USA for education. Therefore, there needs to be a greater focus and more intentionality among student ministries to reach Muslim students.
- National Church:
Most of the evangelism among Muslims will be through the church laity. Therefore, there needs to be church-based training structures.
