New voices in European Mission

The latest edition of Encounters Mission Journal from Redcliffe College features articles by some of the Postgraduate MA students studying at Redcliffe. Several have a specifically European focus:

In ‘Labouring Together, Listening Together?’ Chris Ducker builds on significant field research to examine the effectiveness of short-term mission in Moldova. The particularly significant feature of Chris’s study is his focus on the experiences of those hosting foreign short-term teams. In so doing he brings out important, neglected voices and concludes with some very helpful implications for mission practice that could be usefully applied in all sorts of short-term mission contexts.

Amy Roche’s essay, ‘A Critical Evaluation of the Contextualisation of Alpha France’. Originally submitted as an assessment in the module, Bible Engagement in Intercultural Contexts, Amy gives a balanced, constructive, accessible and sophisticated analysis of the ways in which the Alpha course has been translated linguistically and culturally for use in France, her own ministry context.

Joanne Appleton’s study of ‘The Perceptions of a Missional Lifestyle amongst European Generation Y Christians’ provides valuable research and observations about how young people understand what it means to be ‘missional’.  You may be surprised by the results… A summary of this essay will also appear in the next issue of Vista, which focuses on missional in Europe.

    Good post. I learn something new and challenging
    on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always be exciting
    to read articles from other writers and use a little something from other websites.


  2. I create a comment when I especially enjoy a article on a site or
    I have something to add to the discussion. It’s a result of the passion communicated in the post I browsed. And after this article New voices in European Mission | Vista. I was actually excited enough to create a commenta response🙂 I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it only me or do a few of these remarks look like they are written by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I would
    like to keep up with anything fresh you have to
    post. Would you make a list every one of all your social pages like your twitter
    feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
