Mission and Immigration in Houston: A Fresh Pentecost in the Heart of Texas with Dr. Amos Yong

Fuller Texas with Dr. Amos Yong Monday, October 7th 7PM at Fair Haven

The earliest Christians were empowered by the Spirit to bear witness to the gospel starting from Jerusalem and continuing to the ends of the earth. Yet even on the day of Pentecost, we know that those from every nation under heaven were already gathered on the streets of Jerusalem to experience the outpouring of the Spirit. Houston today is a global center in part because it sends people to and draws people from the ends of the earth. What does the apostolic experience have to tell us about the vocation of the church in Houston to be on mission in an era of migration and globalization?
