On February 24, 2004 Baptist Press News reported that "a better understanding of Islam was the agenda at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary’s annual mission conference Feb. 13-15. Hosted by The David and Faith Kim School of Intercultural Studies, the conference drew approximately 250 college students from across the West to the seminary’s northern California campus in Mill Valley. 'Within our culture today, there is a sense of fear about Islam,' said Tyler Watts, a student from California Baptist University. 'This conference has helped me understand the nature of the Islam faith and how, out of love, we can more effectively share the Gospel to Muslims.' Bringing in experts from both academia and the mission field, the conference offered practical help to reach the nearly 1.2 billion Muslims worldwide with the message of Jesus Christ."
