Humility – at the heart of mission
5 All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5 (NIV)
What does it mean to ‘clothe yourself with humility’ in cross-cultural ministry and mission work?
For most of the last 200 years of evangelical mission history, the gospel has been taken from wealthy and powerful countries to the majority world. Sometimes this missionary expansion has been marked by decidedly more pride than humility. This has disfigured the gospel and distorted expectations about what God promises his people. Humility must be at the heart of mission.
In this public event Dr Simon Gillham will be unpacking what the Bible says about the humility of the Lord Jesus and any who would serve in his name. We will also explore the particular relevance of humility as a virtue in cross-cultural engagement and Christian mission. There will be time for participants on the night to workshop what humility might look like in a variety of mission scenarios, engage with a Q and A panel, and to hear more from Bishop Malcolm Richards about how Moore College seeks to embody this virtue in our international partnerships through the Centre for Global Mission.
This is a night designed for anyone who wants to engage thoughtfully in cross-cultural ministry or mission work.
