The Missional Church in Aotearoa: Reflections on a Decade of Serving the Church in New Zealand
The Department of Theology and Religion at the University of Otago and Laidlaw College's Christchurch campus warmly invite you to a public lecture by Rev Dr Lynne Baab on Thursday 30 March.
Lynne Baab came to Dunedin in 2007 from a vibrant congregation in Seattle and from a country where church attendance, as a percentage of population, had been stable for quite a while. In her first months and years here, she had to come to grips with the church decline and secularisation that New Zealand Christians are so familiar with. In those years, she started teaching a paper on the missional church, and she has collected many stories from New Zealand Christians who are ministering effectively in a very challenging environment. She’ll tell those stories as well as reflect on what she has learned about the missional church in action in Aotearoa.
We look forward to seeing you there!
