EngagingMuslimsEventFlyerCompleteEarly on the morning of Saturday Feb 16th 170+ people gathered for a full day to listen to Asif Mall, Christian missionary, Apologist & Teacher. He instructed them how to understand the Islamic religion and engage its followers. Even though the seminar was put together quickly, allowing for only a short advertising season campaign, the turnout was excellent. This is the one of the 2013 MBS “Premier Series” events in partnership with Christ Fellowship Church and held at Grace Community Church, 11611 Belair Road, Kingsville, MD 21087.
