SHAPING THE FUTURE OF MISSIONS TRAINING

12 Nov

SHAPING THE FUTURE OF MISSIONS TRAINING

| Worldview Centre for Intercultural Studies

About the Program

June 2018 saw delegates from mission agencies, theological training centres and mission support agencies gather to begin a conversation about shaping the future of missions training.

Join us as we continue the conversation and widen the circle of engagement around this vital topic utilising panel discussions, facilitated group sessions and keynote presentations.

Recent decades have seen a dramatic shift in our missionaries’ expectations of length of service, amount and content of pre-field preparation, and continuing on-field training. How have our models of mission training kept pace with these developments? The Worldview Symposium brings together mission agency leaders, training providers, and course administrators. Join us as we spend time hearing from one another’s experiences, sharing best practices, and developing new ideas for mission training which respond to the needs of today, and of the future.

Keynote Speaker – Perry Shaw

Professor of Education, Arab Baptist Theology Seminary, and author of Transforming Theological Education: A Practical Handbook for Integrative Learning. 

Perry and his family have been serving in the Middle East since 1990, where Perry helped establish extension centres in Syria for the Program for Theological Education by Extension. He then taught at the Near East School of Theology (Beirut) in early 2000, joining the ABTS Faculty in 2007.

Perry spends much of the year as a curriculum and faculty development consultant for theological schools across the globe and is active in the missional theological education movement within the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education.

Perry’s passion is to help ABTS and other theological schools to develop and implement multidimensional purpose-driven curricula that promote the development of missional leadership.
