You helped us reach our goal!
Thank you to every person who made a gift to Transform Minnesota in December 2014. I am encouraged to tell you that we exceeded the goal of our Match Gift by more than double, and surpassed our December financial goals!
This means that we will proceed with two strategic opportunities to help empower evangelical churches reaching Muslims with the Gospel, and helping evangelical pastors address LGBT issues with compassion and Biblical truth.
As I wrote in December, one of our strategic efforts in early 2015 is convening a summit of ministry leaders who are reaching out to Muslims across Minnesota. Our long-term vision is that more Muslims come to know Jesus and that in 10 years when we reconvene the summit, the leaders who will be planning it then will be former Muslims who have come to know the Messiah.
As I reflect on 2014, one of the highlights I noted was a growing love among evangelicals for Muslim people. This is evidenced by people intentionally building friendships with Muslims in order to someday introduce them to Jesus. We are aware of increased spiritual fruit as several Somalis became followers of Jesus in just the past few months.
As the statewide network for evangelicals, we want to provide practical resources and solutions for issues churches and ministries face. We also want to serve as a connector for those in ministry. Your financial support will help us continue our work to see the spread of the Gospel across Minnesota.
Carl Nelson, President
