Jesus Film Project
Ravshan and Lisa serve with Cru's Jesus Film Project, working passionately to bring the message of Jesus to every tribe, nation, and people group. Their dedicated efforts are focused on engaging with Muslims in Central Asia. With more than 20 years of experience ministering in Central Asia, specifically with Cru's Athletes in Action ministry, they are perfectly equipped for this new season of ministry.
The very first Christmas ever—the birth of Jesus as recorded in Luke 2—is a familiar scene. Angels and Shepherds, Mary and Joseph, a little drummer boy. (What! Never mind... no drummer boy.) But the point is not these characters. The point is The Gift that is “good news that will cause great joy for all the people” (Luke 2:10). Throughout this series, we’ll discover what’s so good about the good news of Jesus, not just at Christmas, but for every season life throws at us. This NEW sermon series The Gift starts November 25/26.
Whatever It Takes
ONE FUND. TWO YEARS. THREE TARGETS.
We serve a God who did whatever it takes for us by giving his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16) We believe God is calling each and every one of us at First Christian Church to do whatever it takes to further this message through the mission of his church, in our community, and around the world!
