Reformed Mission in an Age of World Christianity
June 15 - 17, 2010
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Christianity is now a worldwide religious tradition. Faith in Jesus Christ is celebrated today in more languages and in more lands than any other living faith. Churches are growing. Many good works and the institutions to drive are rising. But Jesus has not come back yet. So now what? While we wait for Christ’s return, Christians value cultural engagement, thinking theologically about discipleship in this world and creating principled, sustainable approaches to contemporary living.
This conference is designed to strengthen the intersection between Reformed Christian faith expressions and global movements for world Christianity. It is prompted by the commitments of Calvin College, the emerging global partnership of the World Communion of Reformed Churches, and ready involvement from IAPCHE, the International Association for the Promotion of Christian Higher Education. Conference sessions are being created and hosted principally by Calvin College Centers and Institutes and educational leaders from IAPCHE to promote deep thinking about cultural issues.
Planners for the Uniting General Assembly have endorsed this conference event to mark a new level of global Reformed church partnership. As the world experiences significant religious change, you are invited to think with us about “Reformed Mission in an Age of World Christianity”.
Translation services will be available in Bahasa Indonesia, Korean, and Spanish.
