"Answering The Call: Mission In Time Of Terror" (May 30-June 1, 2018)

In recent years, missionaries, faith-based development workers, and Churches around the world are experiencing an escalating threat of violence from various terrorist groups. Some are targeted, not for their faith but because they are easy targets. Religious extremism (e.g. ISIL, Abu-sayyaf, Christian militias, etc.) that emerged in the 21st century has challenged Churches, theologians and missiologists to revisit Christian’s understanding of mission.

Through keynote presentations and group discussion after each speaker, this conference will provide opportunities to deepen our understanding of Christian mission, inter-religious relations, the patterns of religious extremism and the nature and scope of our moral responses to them.
