All too often, Christians respond to Muslims without the compassion that characterized Jesus.
Bridges seeks to replace fear with love and gentle boldness, reshaping the way Christians respond to their Muslim neighbors.
Bridges focuses on similarities, not differences. Despite deep differences in Christianity and Islam, areas of overlap exist, providing common ground upon which to connect. Bridges teaches how to use similar concepts in Christianity and Islam as a bridge to understanding and open hearts.
Bridges meets you where you are. Bridges content is understandable even without much prior knowledge of Islam, and deep enough to be valuable to those seeking to build on what they already know about Muslims.
Bridges is practical and biblical. Bridges allows you to gain biblical insight into Islamic history and Muslim beliefs, while providing useful next steps and stories that help you put the teaching into practice.
Bridges is widely used and respected. From full-time missionaries to informal small-groups, Bridges is a trusted resource for thousands of Christians globally, and comes strongly recommended by respected Christian leaders.

Experience Bridges as a dynamic, one-day seminar.
Whether you encounter Muslims in the grocery aisle or are preparing for full-time service overseas, the Bridges Seminar will expand your knowledge of Islam and equip you to bridge the gospel to the Muslim heart and mind.
"You don’t have to be an expert in Islam to reach Muslims. You need to be an expert on the gospel and simply know enough about Islam to build a bridge."

My training has Bridges Leaders Training in the afternoon. What is that? (Not all Bridges Seminars have this optional session.)
During this two hour session we will walk you through how to lead the 6-week Bridges Study DVD series in your church and in your community. The 6-week series builds upon the information received during the Bridges Seminar, plus, it challenges people to apply what they are learning through practical outreach instruction. Combining the Bridges Seminar with a 6-week study in your church or organization will inform and engage your people.
I've done the Bridges DVD study, why should I also attend the Bridges Seminar?
We are glad you have gone through the Bridges Study. We would like to continue to challenge and inspire you, so join us at the Bridges Seminar to hear Fouad tell stories of God working, to participate in Q&A, and to check out our great resource center. You’ll also meet people in your region who are interested in Muslim ministry and get connected with local ministries involved with Muslims.
I’ve just gone to Bridges Seminar, should I also do the Bridges DVD study?
Yes. We’re glad you joined us for an exciting day of inspiration, learning and connections. Doing a Bridges Study in a small group will allow you to go over the material again, work through your questions in a group, and put into practice what you have learned through the weekly action point. Even better, by leading a study, you aren’t keeping your new knowledge to yourself; gather a few friends, serve some baklava, and start your own Bridges small group!
Is the training appropriate for high schoolers?
Yes! In fact, middle school age children are encouraged to attend as well.
What do I need to bring with me?
Please bring a pen and a readiness to learn. We’ll provide the rest.
Have a different question?
We'd love to hear it.
