News: Professor opens Center for Islamic Studies at AGTS
Dr. Mark Hausfeld, AGTS associate professor of Urban and Islamic Studies, has established the Center for Islamic Studies at AGTS. The Center is designed to equip the church to reach Muslims through courses that will empower the student to reach Muslims. Because of a collaboration with AG World Missions’ Global Initiative: Reaching Muslim Peoples, AGTS is able to provide faculty to teach master’s and doctoral classes who can draw on their combined 200 years of experience in the Muslim world.
“Most western people have negative or stereotyped impressions of Muslims,” said Hausfeld. “But Muslims are, by and large, warm, kind and respectful people who share many moral values with followers of Christ. They deserve, not bias and prejudice, but the love and compassion of Christ.”
