How Can European Missionaries Contribute to World Mission Today?

Description

Because of the present growth of the church in so-called receiving nations there have been serious questions about whether affluent nations should send missionaries to less affluent nations. Because of differences in culture and ways of relating to each other often there is an attitude of suspicion and even hostility in relationships with partners in the mission of the church. This seminar looks at the ways that churches of different nations can enrich each other and at possible roles that foreign missionaries could have today. Proposals will be given about how to forge Christian cultures which can overcome hostilities and suspicions and promote mutual enrichment.
