In days gone by, “missions” was premised on one culture (primarily Western) seeking to reach another culture (non-Western). Today however, there are fewer and fewer Western contexts that are not in and of themselves multicultural. In other words, the “borders” which once guided our perspectives and the work of “missions” are vanishing and questions remain as to how helpful they were to begin with.
This workshop will feature theological perspectives and experiential insights on what it might mean and look like for the Church in North America to grapple with its increasingly marginal and multicultural context. We will also discuss hindrances and opportunities for multi-ethnic missions.
