In this episode, Jeff Boyd interviews Gabriela Phillips. Gaby serves as the Adventist Muslim Relations Coordinator for the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and she also leads the Adventist Muslim Friendship Association, which is a local initiative of the Division.
She shares with her husband a passion for inviting Muslims and Adventists to journey closer to God in preparation for the soon return of Jesus. She has a special focus on finding the footprints of God among Muslims and then leading Adventists and Muslims from common ground to higher ground.
Gaby is currently pursuing doctoral studies at Andrews University and has over twenty years of experience in Adventist Muslim Relations.
