Grace Ministries is continually searching for relevant and timely tools to help our churches reach the unreached in their communites and around the world. God, in His grace, has led us to a new partnership with "CHRISTAR", a world-wide mission organization that specializes in reaching the least-reached populations of Hindus, Muslims, and Buddhists. With all their efforts in planting and supporting indeginous churches in unreached populations is the heightened realization that God is also bringing the mission field to us! Large groups of Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist followers have immigrated to the United States. Many of them are the co-workers, neighbors, and schoolmates of our church members.
PROBLEM: 99% of all Christians have no idea of how to reach out to people of a different faith. As a result, very few are led to a knowledge of Jesus Christ.
SOLUTION: Christar has developed a large number of training tools to assist church leaders. Resources to help their congregations understand these other religions and how to be successful in sharing the Gospel with the Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist communities in their area.
Grace Ministries celebrates this new partnership and we encourage our library subscribers to take advantage of this FREE and valuable resource.

The Christar heritage dates back to the early 1900's. Christian pioneers like Florence Drew, Benjamin Davidson and Francis Stead began by reaching the lost in China, India and Iran. God's great plan combined these amazing ministries into what has now become Christar. They have planted churches in over 30 countries and in more than 70 people groups. They provide resources and training to churches all over the world to help them reach the least reached. Christar also has one of most extensive and effective short-term mission programs in the world. See below for more information.
Grace Ministries and Christar, along with other mission-minded organizations, are creating a Short-Term Mission Training and Certification program that can be used by every church. This tool will be FREE, and totally ONLINE, so that any sending church can make it easily available to their teams. This training will help groups be more prepared and effective as they enter different cultures. Content will be generic enough to be applicable in any type of ministry being performed and specific enough to help each individual feel confident as they reach out with Christ's love to those in need.
