Event Details

How do we share the Gospel? Do we just ‘download’ a formulaic message? Have we ever thought how our listeners are hearing and understanding what we say? And that many things might actually not be comprehensible and meaningful? At this SCGM Missions Forum, we will learn how to converse with others in terms and through ideas that they can better relate with.

We will also consider other more contextualised missions approaches, including worshipping through culturally-meaningful ways, befriending others through their love languages, discipling oral learners through embodied approaches, and what all these mean for the way we do short-term mission trips.

Come, listen, learn and interact with others who are all exploring new ways to re-gear ourselves for missions in the decade ahead.

She is currently the coordinator of Al Massira in SE Asia and Bangladesh, traveling and sharing with churches and field workers training programs that equip believers to dialogue and journey well with friends who want know how the Old Testament prophets related with God, and understand the signs pointing to the Messiah.

Mary enjoys community building in cross-cultural friendships, board games, music and swimming.
