The deadline of the applications for Building Life-Affirming Communities: Face To Face with the many poor and many faiths in Asia is on July 15th, 2015. Please send your applications to no later than July 10. One candidate will be endorsed from the U.S. and one from Canada.

Face to Face is a seven-week programme that aims to invite the students preparing for ministry in cultural, social, theological and contextual realities to understand, to motivate and to engage with the realities on how the fullness of life is being denied to the large majority of the world’s population.

This Programme will be conducted in two locations—Bishop’s College in Kolkata and Henry Martin Institute in Hyderabad, India—from 3rd October to 16th November 2015.

Through this Programme, the participants will come face to face with the issues on poverty and pluralism, specifically within the Asian context of many religions and many poor.

This will provide them opportunities to engage in a global dialogue on theology, spirituality and mission through intercultural exchange and theological reflection by facilitating immersion programmes, Bible Studies and seminars that would enable them to reflect on doing mission in the context of Empire.

You can find application materials here.
