Summer 2020

This course explores inherited assumptions and patterns of Christian congregational life and their relation to the missio Dei in light of rapidly changing contexts. Intercultural and postcolonial perspectives on missional ecclesiology, a theology of companionship and cultural humility offer a framework for renewing congregational identity and practice. We will use interviews with innovative practitioners, readings, and case studies to equip learners to analyze their own context missionally and to imagine and engage processes of congregational change.
