Along with the help of other seasoned teachers and practitioners in ministry to Muslims, we serve Christians and missionaries serving in church planting and other ministries to Muslims globally.
Benjamin Hegeman has served in Benin, West Africa for about 30 years, and is fluent in Baatonu, French and Dutch.
Don Little served in Morocco for about 10 years, is fluent in French and functional in Moroccan Arabic. Following his time as church planter, he served for several years in mission leadership in Canada and has served as a missiologist since 2007.
Gail has served in a variety of diaspora ministries for more than 25 years among Muslims in Los Angeles, London, and Beirut.
We have been teaching courses on Islam and ministry to Muslim at Houghton College, Wesley Biblical Seminary and in several other colleges since 2005. Since 2015 we’ve served various ministry and seminary partners in East and West Africa.
“The world in which we live today is confronted with catastrophic changes unparalleled in human history and the Church is going to be tasked with discovering how to live side by side, step by step in harmony and yet with distinction, beside or alongside, a very aggressive and uniquely monotheistic faith. For these reasons and more I envision The Lilias Trotter Center helping the Church … as we seek to share Him with those who do not yet know and love Him.”
