This is not another methodology or attempt to re-contextualize the Christianity. Rather, it is a journey from the launch of the church in Ephesus as it became a movement grounded in God’s mission and led by those who multiplied generations of Christ-followers.
The Ephesiology Movement Workshop focuses on you and your team as missiological theologians who successfully connect Jesus’s story with the cultural context and narrative of the people in your community. You’ll discover how to relate the God of all creation to a people who seek him in vain and how effective engagement can result in transforming the religious, intellectual, economic, and social fabrics of a community.
The Ephesiology Movement Workshop offers a comprehensive view of the redemptive movement of the Holy Spirit in Ephesus and compels us to ask the question: How can we effectively connect Christ to our culture? Through this study of a movement, you’ll discover how the Holy-Spirit still changes lives, cities, and the world.
This is the story of Paul’s missiological theology situated in the grand narrative of God’s mission. It rocked the world of his time, and it can rock our world as well.From Ephesiology: The Study of the Ephesian Movement
