Our Theme: Global Confluency in Theological Education

The task of theological education in the Majority World is too large for just one method, one movement, or one mission agency.

Current global trends in theological education have stimulated significant reflections on the diverse streams used by practitioners worldwide.

Join Dr. Ortiz as we explore the biblical basis for community and collaboration in theological education, emerging considerations, and philosophies on theological education. We will also look at diversity within the formal and non-formal sectors of theological education—especially at how a more confluent global approach might better serve the global church.

Investigate and explore how we can further foster integral collaboration while navigating the diverse waters of international theological education.
