What in the World is God Doing? Lecture by Kristin Huffman

1st Wednesday Lecture Series

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

God is at work in miraculous ways in the Middle East, around the world and right in our back yard.  As Christians develop relationships with people who have never heard the Gospel, they are able to share the love of Christ and bring the light and hope to others.

Kristin Huffman is an ordained Presbyterian minister who is an Associate Director of Frontier Fellowship, a mission to the unreached in Houston and across the world. She is also working at Fuller Theological Seminary both as a professor and as a Director of Strategic Engagement.
