Who We Are and Why We Are Here
Strategic Catalyst for Muslim Internationals (SCMI) and

Currently based in Houston, the Greens have a regional ministry which includes but is not limited to Texas.
Specific Group of Internationals with Whom We Work
Muslims in our local communities whether they be international refugees, immigrants, or internationals in an academic or business setting.
We seek the mobilization of Christians and churches in developing or enhancing internationals ministry among Muslims by providing resources, training opportunities, mentoring, networking, and gaining practical experience on-site with our Internationals Cluster members. We coordinate an internationals ministry network which includes an emphasis on prayer and resourcing churches.

We can help you learn to share with integrity and cultural sensitivity to those of other cultures and faiths.
We can help you understand the Islamic faith and how it intersects with our own faith.
We can be a resource as you develop specific ministries that will impact the Muslims who live in your community.
We can connect you with a variety of networks and individuals who would be resources and potential partners for you as you develop ministries.
We can help you lead your church in understanding the paradigms of missions in a globalized world.
We can create experiences for your church that will increase their understanding and skills in ministering to Muslims around them.
We can lead your church in developing an understanding of human trafficking and speaking out with a global voice against trafficking.
