2013 Faith & Life project: African Theology

by Webmaster on August 5, 2013

Now that he has returned from Africa, Michael Thomas will present at two events in the chapel of the Menno Simons Centre at 4000 West 11th Ave, Vancouver:

  • Wednesday, August 14, 2013 @ 7:30 p.m. – join the MSC residents for a potluck community meal at 6:00 p.m. and stay for the presentation.
  • Sunday, August 18, 2013 @ 10:00 a.m. – join the worship service of the Point Grey Inter-Mennonite Fellowship (PGIMF) and hear Michael speak during the sermon time.

The PCDA established a Faith & Life Integration project this year called Pioneering contextualized theological education in Africa. As a volunteer of the PCDA, Michael Thomas visited the Akrofi-Christaller Institute (ACI) in Akropong, Ghana from April 14 to May 18 to examine how ACI’s approach to theological formation helps students understand the relationship between learning, faith, culture, and mission. The PCDA contributed some seed funding, and you are invited to make a charitable donation to support this Faith & Life project by designating the funds to the “African theology” project.
