Call for Papers & Save the Date!

North Central Regional Evangelical Missiological Society Conference
at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School on March 16, 2019!

Today perhaps more than ever before, global missionaries encounter numerous forms of crises and human suffering in the normal course of their work. Whether it’s poverty in Africa, a Tsunami in southeast Asia, human trafficking in India, or refugees in Europe and America, the likelihood that missionary efforts will intersect with some form of global crisis appears to be on the rise. What does this mean for mission theology and practice in the 21stcentury? How will these events shape the future of the church engaged in the missio Dei? These issues raise important missiological questions for the church, including:
  • How do these realities impact the ongoing debate between holistic missions advocates and those who emphasize proclamation?
  • What are the implications for indigeneity when it comes to responding to global crises? How can disaster relief efforts build on the knowledge and cultural insight of local churches and local believers? How can local believers be an integral part of disaster response?
  • What contextual theologies are coming from the global south that inform modern mission praxis as it relates to human suffering?
  • What do global crises mean for North American and European churches, especially in light of materialism and individualism that often characterize Western churches?
  • How do global crises and resulting needs affect fundraising strategies?
  • How do missionaries and organizations engage in responsible evangelism in the midst of crises?
  • How does the concept of missio Dei relate to responding to human need?
  • What are churches among the poor doing to respond to crises in their own communities?
  • How do global crises especially affect women and children? How can the church on mission serve the needs of women and children in crises?
Papers are solicited that address these and other related topics from missiological, theological, historical, sociological, and/or regional perspectives. Proposals are due by December 15, 2018.
 
To propose a paper, send a topic title and 200-300 word abstract to your regional EMS Vice President, Esther Theonugraha at northcentral@emsweb.org. Accepted papers should be 4500-7000 words in length and use Chicago Turabian author-date citation format. Selected papers presented at the regional meetings will be invited to be presented at the annual EMS meeting in Dallas, September 13-15, 2019, leading to the possibility of being published as a chapter in the EMS Annual Compendium for 2020.

The North Central Regional Conference will be held at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. For those who interact with college students, we will again host the Pecha Kucha college event Friday night, March 15. Pecha Kucha presentations will be the feature, along with free pizza for college students. Be watching for more information via email and on the North Central Region's EMS page.
