Event Details

In today’s global mission engagement, we have shifted away from the neo-colonial and narrow Western forms and methods. Gone too are the absolute, top-down decision-making and fixed approaches to the way we work, live together, and even share the gospel. Instead, there is a move towards partnership, collaboration, breaking barriers and meaningful, contextual engagement.

Join us in our first Missions Conversations of 2024 as we explore the topic “When our SG Models Don’t Work: Developing Local Strategies” as an introduction of the year’s theme Re-gearing for Missions in the Decade Ahead – learning to build bridges and connections across cultures which could lead towards sustainable sharing of the gospel and learning about Christ.
Come also to join us for breakfast and fellowship at 8:30am!

Event Details

We often conceive discipleship as revolving around Bible study. But what about people who are not functionally literate, or who do not primarily learn through reading and studying, or who don’t enjoy opening a book – how can they grow spiritually? What did Christians in ancient times and those who lived before print technology do to grow and mature as followers of Christ?

The Missions Conversation in March will help us to expand our understanding of ‘discipleship’ and think more creatively in discipling orality-background learners in the Word of God. But before we dive into the conversation, come join us for breakfast and fellowship at 8:30am!
