Tennessee Pastors Network President Hosting Usama Dakdok for Special Event Monday

— Gathering Is Timely as Refugee Debate Heightens and as Tennessee Citizens Are Concerned with Pro-Islam Textbooks —

Tennessee Pastors Network (TNPN, www.tnpastors.net) Dale Walker, along with Pastor Darrel Whaley of The Kingdom Ministries, is hosting Usama Dakdok, an Egyptian Christian who immigrated to the U.S. and leads a ministry that teaches the truth about Islam and Christ, for a special event on Nov. 23.

The event is especially timely, as the nation continues to debate the admittance of thousands of Syrian refugees to the U.S. Additionally, over the past few weeks, parents and concerned citizens have been voicing their opinions about Islamic indoctrination in public school textbooks.

“This is a crucial time in our nation,” Walker said, “as we consider Americans’ safety along with our Christian duty to support ‘the least of these.’ But there are ways to help others as God commanded without putting our nation in harm’s way so that another devastating terrorist attack like the one in Paris is not repeated here at home. As TNPN leads this important event, we encourage all pastors to host similar events in their churches in such perilous times.”

                          WHO:         Tennessee Pastors Network welcoming Usama Dakdok of The Straight Way of Grace Ministry. Rep. Bryan Terry will also be in attendance, speaking on this timely issue.

                          WHAT:       A special event to discuss the pressing matters of our nation

                          WHERE:    The Kingdom Ministries, 675 E. Jefferson Pike, Murfreesboro, TN 37130

                          WHEN:       6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 23

(Doors open at 5:20 p.m. for refreshments and fellowship.)
