9:00 am – 3:30 pm at the Penrose House, behind the Broadmoor, Colorado Springs, Colo. Sponsored by the Rocky Mtn. Evangelical Missiological Society

David Bosch’s Transforming Mission (1991) is acknowledged as the leading book in mission theory of the last two decades, yet inaccessible to most. Now Dr. Stan Nussbaum, a student of the late Bosch, has unlocked its treasures in A Reader’s Guide to “Transforming Mission” (Orbis Books, 2005), Join the Rocky Mtn EMS for this hands-on workshop and discover how Bosch:

  • Rescues Christian mission from 20th-century triumphalism.
  • Revisions mission theology from the New Testament.
  • Reorganizes the classical evangelical view into an emerging post-Enlightenment paradigm.

world-ball_sDr. Nussbaum will reveal nine basic “insider” assumptions in mission gleaned from Bosch’s 519-page book. You will gain expertise in how to take Bosch’s huge concepts and reduce them to diagrams that can stimulate the thinking of your staff, field workers and friends.
