Pentecost Breakfast - Aisha Hussein's Story - June 25

During the season of Pentecost we are reminded of God’s love for all nations and cultures. He still speaks to us in our given language and draws us by His Holy Spirit to Himself. God created and loves
diversity. He also reveals His diversity in each unique way He enters into a relationship with us.

Come hear Aisha Hussain, a senior at George Mason University and campus DJ, share the unique way God called her to Himself. Aisha owns a Pakistani-Indo-Puerto-Rican-American background. She will be sharing her faith journey story from a Muslim family to trust in Jesus. Her story will convict and encourage you. Please invite friends from any background to attend. Breakfast will be served with a Question and Answer time following Aisha’s story.

Baltimore - Washington DC Church Planting Study

The State of Church Planting in the Washington DC / Baltimore Corridor was led by Ron Johnson and published by Accelerate, a church-planting network working in partnership with the Exponential Network.

Praise God for the hard work, and may the report be useful to you, dear reader, God's servant.

Executive Summary
Church planting churches, national and local networks, and denominations have planted at least 274 churches in the last five years in the Washington Baltimore metropolitan area. 92 of these churches (34%) are in non-English languages.
