Short Term Mission Forum (2 Days) | Global Connections

Short Term Mission Forum (2 Days)

The forum seeks to provide a way for agencies and churches to be committed to excellence and to meet the best possible standards in the running of our short-term programmes.

The Millennial generation (those reaching young adulthood in the early 21st century - born between 1982 and 2004) are at an age where they are engaging in short-term mission experiences.  How do we need to adapt our attitudes, methods, and processes to ensure that they have the best possible experience of short-term mission and help contribute to the challenges and opportunities of our churches and agencies? And how does the wider context of the changes in mission globally influence our thinking about short-term mission?

The Short Term Mission Forum 2017 will explore the following issues as they relate to our theme "Millennials, mentoring and mobilisation":

  • Challenges and changes in mobilisation                                                
  • From everywhere to everywhere: polycentric mission                              
  • Mobilising  Millennials                                                                           
  • Mentoring with meaning                                                                        
  • Forum updates: BS8848 and the Code of Best Practice Review 2018

Speakers: Anna Bishop, Executive Director of Global Connections, Graham Archer, CPAS and Alison Allen, an independent researcher

Cost: £105 per person (GC members) and £135 per person (non- GC members).   

Book now for this 24-hour event to help equip you further in your role.

The event will start at 2.00pm on Tuesday 17 October and end with lunch on Wednesday 18 October.

Cancellation Policy: The majority of the cost of a residential event is the accommodation charge which we have to pay to the conference centre well in advance of the event. Therefore, although we will aim to be as generous as possible with our refunds, they will normally only consist of a small proportion of the amount paid and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
