|BGST Annual Conference is here|
“Towards A Shared Marketplace Theology” (1—3 July 2010)
In 2009, BGST launched its first Annual Conference focusing on the spiritual formation of those involved in providing pastoral care. The theme of “Tending the Shepherd” brought together nearly a hundred people for the three and a half days conference.
The Annual Conference programme has the following aims:
This year, the Conference will focus on the marketplace with the theme Towards A Marketplace Theology.
Theme & Synopsis:
In fulfillment of the conference aims, the morning plenary and afternoon workshop sessions will have two speakers in conversation, each representing the church and the marketplace.
Conference Speaker: Prof Dr Carver Yu
Prof Dr Carver Yu is the Senior Pastor of Cumberland Church and President of China Graduate School of Theology in Hong Kong. He will present a framework for the Conference participants to dialogue towards a shared marketplace theology in the Asian context. Prof Yu will draw from the Hong Kong experience in bringing clergy and laity closer together in mutual constructive dialogue on marketplace theology as it is being developed in Hong Kong today.
Two response speakers representing the marketplace and church perspective will give their response to Prof Yu’s addresses. On the final day, there will be a forum with all three speakers in conversation with the conference participants.
In the afternoon, we will have workshops on issues related to the marketplace e.g. What is Marketplace Mission? Believers in Business with Pre-Believers – Issues & Perspectives, The Role of the Church in the Marketplace, Marketplace Practices in the Church - Value Add or Not?
