This event will explore the contrasting terminology used in training colleges today and if different churches. What has been the effect of the move from mission to missional lifestyle, if there a huge theological divide between the use of words such as gospel and kingdom, has integral or holistic mission just become a new name for social action and how is the local and global divide perceived.
There will be a variety of presentations, case studies and discussions presented by various colleges. There will be intentional opportunities for mission educators to meet peers and discuss issues, difficulties and successes.
After looking at terminology, various colleges will present on the three key themes of
- kingdom vs gospel
- evangelisation vs social action
- monolithic vs universal vs contextual.
