School of Religion theologians to participate in global theology conference

Two members of Trevecca’s Millard Reed School of Theology and Christian Ministry (MRSTCM) will participate in the Nazarene Global Theology Conference III (GTC3) in Johannesburg, South Africa, from March 23 to 27, 2014. Tim Green, University chaplain and dean of the MRSTCM, and Kathy Mowry, holder of the J. B. Elizer Chair of Christian Ministry and an associate professor of mission and Christian education, will represent Trevecca. Green, who has served on the steering committee for this event for the past four years, is responsible for the oversight of the worship times and morning devotions. Mowry will lead small-group discussions.

Sponsored by the International Board of Education of the Church of the Nazarene and Nazarene Theological Seminary, this conference will focus on the topic of the ecclesiology of the Church of the Nazarene, or “what it means to be the Church of the Nazarene.”

The scope of this conference is intentionally global so that the views and voices will represent all world regions, needs, and diverse groups. Participants in this conference are pastors, educators, and church administrators from the Church of the Nazarene who represent world areas and peoples. They could submit proposals for papers to be selected for presentation by conference planners.

This Global Theology Conference is the third of its type. The first one was held in Guatemala, and the second, in Amsterdam.
