“Walking With” as a Metaphor for Missions

On the theme, ‘Walking With”: A Missions Theology, Part One (of six)

October Update.  I am still teaching one course at PBTS in Cultural Anthropology.   It is an online class. We are using Moodle, with some assistance of Jitsi for online groups. For more information, see (https://e.pbts.net.ph). We are using my book “Ministry in Diversity” with some additional materials for ethnography and case studies.

I will also start a Cultural Anthropology class at ABGTS in around 4 weeks. That is for ThM and ThD students.

Also I have (shockingly) started work on a book on Missions Theology. I had started one years ago and then decided not to. Instead I used a lot of my book and incorporated it into my book on Interreligious Dialogue. However, I have started again. Not sure if I will publish it or not.

This website is a place I set up to share some thoughts on

Samaria Front Cover
Book looking at the history of mission work in Samaria with implications to us in reaching our “uncomfortable neighbors”

Christian Missions, as well as some other topics like Theology, Church, Evangelism, Pastoral Theology, and Pastoral Counseling, Yes that is not all that narrow, but I like to think lots of things and this website helps me think.

My wife and I have served in the Philippines for 16 years. I teach missions in a seminary and my wife and I run a pastoral care center.
