Thinking Theology Consultation Asia
Satdobato-Godavari Rd, Godawari 44709, Nepal
Thinking Theology Gatherings have been an integral part of Tearfund’s envisioning strategy for the past three years. They provide a space to bring together a diverse group of theologians, church leaders and development practitioners to reflect upon the way that the Bible can and should shape our engagement in poverty alleviation and community transformation. Theological reflection is a key principle of Tearfund’s work, as we believe that it is essential to our ability to truly seek the kingdom of God in the course of our work.
The Thinking Theology Consultation will be hosted in Nepal and covering the topic of Theological Education in Asia.
We want to see integral mission theology more deeply embedded in all forms of Christian formation within the region
We want to see church leaders trained to lead their churches in practical mission
We want church leaders and lay people to be confident in their understanding of their faith so that they are able to participate in it.
We want to provide an opportunity for those who are involved in theological education and training to reflect on their approaches, particularly in the light of the ever-changing context of the church in the region.
The consultation will incorporate those from a range of educational formats or approaches, including: seminary or college-based training, TEE, and grass-roots discipleship.
