Sixty: Gifts

Outside the Majority World the church is in decline. Understandably, they are on the lookout for ideas that work and bring success. But here is the irony. They tend to keep looking for these ideas from other places where the church is in decline!  Why not turn to places where churches are on the rise and people are coming to faith in Christ in huge numbers – like in so many places in the Majority World? Is there not something we can learn from them?

The Church’s Role in the Midst of Crisis

The Church’s Role in the Midst of Crisis

The COVID-19 crisis, like all crises, will fall more heavily on the poor and disadvantaged. Real positive social, cultural, political, economic, and even environmental change can only take place if the church is faithful to its calling as the voice, hands, and feet of God's redeeming and reconciling grace. David Boan and Josh Ayers explain about their experiences helping churches bless their community and the things they have learned along the way.

Havilah Dharamraj – Author Spotlight

Havilah Dharamraj – Author Spotlight

There are hurdles every step of the way in academic and church leadership, both in the journey to leadership and in the exercise of that leadership. It's not a calling for many.

Seminary is hard work, and getting a PhD even tougher, as well as the challenge of financing your theological education. And many PhD graduates struggle to find employment in academia.

As an Indian woman, Havilah Dharamraj had to deal with all of this and more in her journey to where she is today as she humbly followed God's gradual guidance which led her to be an Old Testament scholar who can benefit her church and a seminary leader as the Academic Dean at SAIACS. Read how God has led Dr Dharamraj through this journey in her own words.

An Antidote for Toxic Leadership

An Antidote for Toxic Leadership

Purple has long been a colour that denotes wealth and power in societies across the ages and the globe. But at the book launch for Give Up the Purple, Lidstone explained the pitfalls of holding onto ‘the purple’ of power and prestige in leadership within God’s kingdom and the contrasting examples we are set in the Bible through Paul, and of course Jesus himself.

Rhodian Munyenyembe - Author Spotlight

He was offered a lecturing position before graduating from what is now the Evangelical Bible College of Malawi. Later, while an elder of a church in the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian, he never expected to be offered a post from a Catholic university to teach Biblical and Religious Studies.
