Training, intensive program offers skills for mission leadership
The GEMN Global Mission Immersion Program on August 16-26 in Bogota, Colombia is designed to prepare leadership for mission through in-depth training, resources and field work.
The Immersion Program is presented in collaboration from the Diocese of Colombia, Episcopal Church Global Partnership Office, and GEMN (Global Episcopal Mission Network).
"More than a 'mission trip', the Global Mission Immersion Program offers the unique opportunity both to study and to engage in mission simultaneously, thus deepening and enriching the mission experience," noted the Rev. Dr. Ted J. Gaiser, program facilitator, an Episcopal Church missionary, and GEMN president.
The 10-day program is ideal for seminarians, deacons, priests, lay missionaries, experienced missionaries, the mission curious, diocesan mission leaders, “and anyone with an interest in global mission,” noted the Rev. David Copley, Episcopal Church Mission Personnel Officer.
The program will feature clergy and lay instructors who are missionaries with a broad range of knowledge about global mission and will provide practical skills to provide leadership in parishes, dioceses, and the wider church. Among the topics are: church history as it pertains to mission; biblical and theological foundations for mission; field experience; and local culture and history of Colombia
