Garath Franks_John19_29-30

Dear CrossPointe,


This Sunday we have the joy of hearing from our good friend, Gareth Franks, pastor of New Life Church in the United Arab Emirates. Gareth has been with us several times before and has become a close ministry partner. He is from South Africa, and he and his wife were commissioned by Brackenhurst Baptist Church (in Johannesburg) to serve as church planters in India some twenty years ago. After years of fruitful ministry, they moved to Abu Dhabi where he now pastors a church full of internationals in this strategic city in the Middle East. 


He will be preaching from John 19:28–30 about Jesus’ final words on the cross. Then, on Sunday evening, he will share with us more specifically about ministry in the Muslim world.


I’m looking forward to this Sunday!
