Faith in the Face of Empire: Face to Face in the context of Occupation
Author/ Mission Secretary: SUDIPTA SINGH

Dear General Secretaries of the CWM Member-Churches:

Warm greetings from the Council for World Mission (CWM) Global Office in Singapore.

We are now accepting applications for the Faith in the Face of Empire: Face to Face in the context of Occupation, to be held on 17th August to 18th September 2018 in Bethlehem, Palestine.

CWM’s Face to Face programme aims to provide immersion of the participants from different parts of the world into a context different from them. It aims to enable them to reflect on both the motivation and method of mission in different parts of the globe and bring this reflection back to their own contexts.

Specifically, this Programme aims to study some of the most important historical, theological and contemporary issues related to the Middle East in general and in Israel and Palestine in particular. The participants will come face to face with the issues on Occupation and how discrimination and inequality, military occupation and systematic oppression are the rule. This will also provide them opportunities to engage in a global dialogue on theology, spirituality and mission through intercultural exchange and theological reflection that would enable them to reflect on doing mission in the context of Empire.

Please find enclosed the Programme Brief and the application form. This is open to Theology students -- either currently enrolled or has already graduated, but are not ordained ministers.

May we request you to suggest two names (male and female) and send the completed application forms to us on or before 30th May 2018. The selection will be done on the basis of their essay, taking in consideration balance in gender and regional representation in the Programme.

Please note that interested applicants must hold valid passports. CWM will arrange for the selected participant’s visa requirements.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for your questions and/or clarifications.

Thank you.

Yours in Christ,


Mission Secretary
