Highlights of African missiology will be explored during an event to be held in Nairobi, Kenya, on 13 February.

The one-day theological seminar,“Re-visiting Arusha 2018: Highlights of African Missiology,” will give space to theological reflections linked to the Arusha Conference, as well as create space for new reflections based on the Arusha Call to Discipleship, a key document and outcome of the Arusha mission conference.

Africa is becoming rapidly the most Christian continent in numbers. Many highly competent African theologians were able to make themselves visible and audible in the Arusha conference, and yet, many have important contributions to offer to the wider ecumenical movement.

Lectures of the seminar will be streamed for the public. The seminar will be organised by the World Council of Churches Commission on World Mission and Evangelism and All Africa Conference of Churches.
