Seminar: Together Towards Life
18 July 2014
The 4-day seminar, Seeking Renewal of Spirit and Fullness of Life for All Creation as Witnessing Communities, contributes to the quest for ‘ecumenical discernment to seek vision, concepts and directions for a renewed understanding and practice of mission and evangelism in changing a landscape’ as is stated in the World Council of Churches statement on Mission and Evangelism, Together Towards Life: Mission and Evangelism in Changing Landscapes, presented in November 2013 during the WCC 10th Assembly.
The main goal and objective of the course is to train missionaries and staff who belong to different mission boards, organizations, associations, societies or denominational churches with the purpose of providing orientation, understanding and reflection on the pertinent issues of witnessing to Christ as participants in the missio dei in today’s landscape.
It will also give the participants an opportunity to learn and get acquainted with the World Council of Churches and the ecumenical movement as a whole. The overall hope is to foster a link between what is being discussed and taught in academia regarding mission understanding and practices with those who are actively involved in mission at various levels.
Deadline for applications: 15 April 2014
