The Future of Contextualisation: The Next Ten Years in Missions

Alfred Stanway Lecture in Global Mission

Thursday 19th July
5:15pm refreshments for 5:45pm lecture

Speaker: Dr Scott Moreau

The Alfred Stanway Lecture in Global Mission honours the memory of missionary bishop and former Ridley Vice Principal, Alf Stanway. This year’s lecture is presented by Scott Moreau, longstanding Professor of Intercultural Studies at Wheaton College.

Famous for his work on contextualisation, Dr Moreau will consider what has given shape to current missiological theories and practices. This provides the basis for projecting some of the trends in contextualisation and globalisation that will shape the coming decade in cross-cultural engagement at home and around the world. Our evening together focuses on these projections and their implications.

Scott Moreau specialises in issues of contextualisation, missions engagement, cross-cultural communication, spiritual warfare, and technology in missions. He is familiar to missions researchers through major works such as Contextualization in World Missions and the Evangelical Dictionary of World Missions, and for his sixteen years as editor of the Evangelical Missions Quarterly. His missionary experience includes teaching roles in Swaziland and Kenya.

Previous lectures in this series have included presentations by Lindsay Brown, Chris Wright, and Tim Davy. We welcome Dr Moreau as our inaugural North American speaker.
