Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - 6:30pm to Thursday, January 11, 2018 - 10:30am

The rise of global Christianity has challenged understandings of mission as unidirectional (as from Canada, the U.S. and Europe to the rest of the world). New visions of mission have slowly emerged, replacing colonial patterns of mission with visions of mission as multi-directional, global partnerships of churches in joining the work of God's reconciling Spirit in the world. 

As part of MCC's Centennial events, celebrating 100 years of service in the name of Christ in 2020, MCC is hosting an academic conference. Speakers from Canada, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Germany, Honduras, India, Mexico, the United States and Zimbabwe will share their reflections on what hinders and fosters mutual mission partnerships. 

This event is free and open to the public.
