Missiology
  • 1. Missiology is the academic study of the theology and practice of missions. It encompasses a wide range of disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, history, theology, and cultural studies, as well as practical skills such as cross-cultural communication and community development. Missiology seeks to understand the cultural, social, and historical contexts in which mission work takes place, as well as the theological foundations and motivations for engaging in mission. It involves examining the challenges and opportunities of spreading the gospel across different cultures, and fostering dialogue and collaboration between different Christian traditions and worldviews. Missiology also explores ethical considerations in mission work, such as issues of power, privilege, and cultural sensitivity. Ultimately, missiology aims to equip and empower individuals and communities to effectively and respectfully engage in cross-cultural mission work, with the goal of sharing the love and message of Christ with all people.
