¨ at the grassroots, to engage people and churches and raise awareness of the need for Christians to encounter Muslim people and develop an understanding of the Islamic faith, traditions and practices;
¨ by developing specific classes and programmes that explore ways Christians can encounter and engage with Islam in local and global settings;
¨ partnering with others to train people engaged in mission;
¨ developing research-led practice in relation to Islam and Christianity; with academic excellence, resourcing the global church with specialists.
