EMS Memorandum of Understanding

Evangelical Missiological Society (EMS), North American Board has voted to pursue an affiliation with the MSG/WAMS for the next 3 years. They have asked Dr. Enoch Wan to be the liaison between the EMS and MSG.  Ed Smither, the current President and EMS Board envision collaborating with MSG in the following ways:

  • Mutually consulting on facilitating missiological conversations. This could be in the form of people like General Secretary (GS) joining us in Dallas for the annual EMS meeting or perhaps EMS members from North America participating in the West African meetings. I hope Dr. Wan might be able to join MSG for the next conference. Also our former President Bob Priest has been cooperating with African missiologists on some projects and he might also have interest in joining MSG for a future conference in Ghana. Since the GS participated with us in Dallas, we invite him to offer his input on how we approach missiology to conduct our conference, and the themes and topics that we address.
  • Collaborate on some publications. We would invite our African colleagues to contribute articles to the EMS Occasional Bulletins. I am copying editor Allen Yeh and EMS Publications VP Anthony Casey for this. If the MSG has a publication that some of our members could contribute to, then we could share that as well.
  • Sharing information and resources. We can make the mp3 audio files of the EMS 2019 conference available to our West African colleagues. Should MSG colleagues put something online in open source we would love to link to that as well.

In short, the EMS and MSG envisage mutually encouraging one another, sharing resources, and collaborating as they have the opportunity.

MSG 2016 CONFERENCE

The theme of the conference is “RETHINKING ‘’THE GREAT COMMISSION’’: EMERGING AFRICAN PERSPECTIVES.”

CONFERENCE RATIONALE

Kenneth Scott Latourette has described the period 1800-1900 as “the Great Century”; this period in ecclesiastical history witnessed a massive thrust of missionary activity into Africa and the rest of the two thirds world.  Two major mission conferences that occurred in the 20th century following the Great century are significant for students of missiology, particularly those on the African continent. Edinburgh 1910 has gone down in history as the mission conference that reinforced the misconceptions and stereotypes that many in the western world held about Africa. The Le Zoute Conference of 1926 struck a more positive note; it was more affirming of African religions, culture and heritage. Several other mission conferences have taken place ever since; to what extent was the African dimension a prime concern in these conferences? In other words, to what extent was the agenda in those conferences informed by the realities of the African situation? When Jesus said his disciples should go and make disciples of all nations, he must be understood to mean that the nations, apart from Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, include those in Africa as well. After all the baby Jesus sojourned in Africa for a brief period of his infancy, and we are aware that Christianity made inroads into Africa in the 4th century, precisely in the Ethiopian Kingdom of Axum, a couple of centuries before it got to Europe. Unfortunately much of the modern history of the church, south of the Sahara, beginning from the 19th century is lost to us; what this conference aims to do is draw awareness to this hiatus and encourage students of missiology to turn attention more to this aspect of our history. A lot needs to be told of the exploits of local natives, many of them catechists, evangelists and lay people, who blazed the trail in the spread of the gospel to their own kith and kin. The other objective of the conference, which derives from the primary aim, is to explore and discuss the sources in which most of these stories lie buried.
