The advent of World Christianity requires a rethinking of missions. Further, globalization, migration, and new technologies force us to reexamine how missions should be conducted. As missiologists anticipate the future of missions, we must examine past models as well as the new context.
This year's EMS theme encourages presenters to research and critique the permutations and implications of seminal models in missiology and missionary practice. It also encourages presenters to anticipate future directions in the missions enterprise, especially in light of the need to minister to the next generations and the impact of missions in the workplace, neighborhood, and other sectors of society.
For consideration at the annual EMS meeting in Dallas, October 16-18, 2020, papers will need to be submitted within two weeks of the conclusion of the regional meeting. Accepted papers should be 4500-7000 words in length and use Chicago Turabian author-date citation format. Papers are sent from the regional VP to the EMS conference chairs. If your paper is selected you will be invited to present at the annual EMS meeting, leading to the possibility of being published as a chapter in the EMS Annual Compendium for 2021.
