The annual Misfit the Conference event kicked off in the Salvation Army Centennial Memorial Theater in New York City last Thursday, and featured prominent Christian pastors and artists from all over the world.
The sold-out 3-day conference, coordinated by Pastor Chris Durso of Christ Tabernacle Church in Queens, NY, included sermons from Hillsong NYC's Carl Lentz, Chris's mother Pastor Maria Durso, Erwin Mcmanus, Chris Hill, Chad Veach, Durso himself, and Rich Wilkerson Jr., the Florida minster who recently made headlines for marrying rapper Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
The event, which appeals to youth and young adults by using hip-hop artists such as Andy Mineo, and worship bands like Hillsong Young and Free, also pushes the envelope by playing instrumentals from secular songs to engage the crowd. more >>

Trans World Radio and allied broadcasting ministries say they are "nursing a spark of Gospel witness" in the Middle East and South Asia, where Christians in these regions are under heightened cultural and political pressures – some of them violent.
The director of TWR's Arabic Ministry, whose identity is withheld for security reasons, said organizations such as TWR, SAT-7, Feba are using radio, TV and new media, to cross-promote programs and share resources and content as they reach out to these troubled lands.
