This announcement has been in the works for a couple months now. To give some background, while David and I were ministering together at NYU a few weeks ago, we came to a realization. On account of Dearborn's actions and injustices, much of what Acts 17 is now focused on is combatting the loss of free speech in our nation and the ignorance about Sharia's impact on the West.
David and I both agree that these are extremely important matters that need to be addressed, but we also agree that it doesn't require both of us focusing our efforts on this issue. Our ability to share the Gospel, the primary purpose for the creation of Acts 17, was waning amidst all the attention we were both giving to free speech and Sharia issues. For this reason, we have decided that we need to branch into a new ministry which will be removed from the political discussions while Acts 17 continues on its current trajectory. In this manner, between the two of us, we will be able to focus on our entire mission, not letting one aspect dominate.
Starting with Arabfest 2011 (that's tomorrow!) David will take over sole leadership of Acts 17. I have created a new ministry called Creed 2:6 Ministries. In accordance with the aims of the new ministry, I will not be at Arabfest this year.
I would like to reiterate that David and I both see this as the best strategic course of action for our ministry. There is no division between us, and Creed 2:6 is affiliated with Acts 17. I will continue to blog on AnsweringMuslims.com on occasion, and David and I will continue to minister together as opportunities arise.
Your support has been very important to us over these years, and I would appreciate your support of Creed 2:6 ministries as it gets off the ground. Please visit the website, Creed26.com, and follow our ministry via YouTube, Facebook, Blogger, and Twitter. I look forward to seeing some of you on these sites in the near future! Below are some videos to get you started :-)
