Re-Imagining the Seminary: International Conference on Theological Education Leadership 11–14 September 2013 Bucharest, Romania

This four day event, organized by Institutul Teologic Penticostal, Bucharest, Romania

and Evan?eoski Teološki Fakultet, Osijek, Croatia in partnership with the Child Theology Movement invites leaders in seminaries in Eastern Europe to join a process of radical re-evaluation of Theological Education Leadership in light of the nature and values of the Kingdom of God as expressed by Jesus’ symbolic gesture of placing a child in the midst of a theological argument on leadership in the Kingdom (Matthew 18).

It aims to: reflect on, discuss, and imagine, new ways of following and embodying the values of the Kingdom of God while living

December 2011

As Christmas nears once again, it is my pleasure to bring you the next installment of news sent to those who have subscribed on the CTM website.  Please continue to let us have comments, further information and ideas.  CTM is a global network or movement connecting people committed to doing theology by taking the child placed by Jesus in our midst as a vital clue.  On behalf of the directors of CTM I wish you a joyful Christmas, as you ponder afresh the wonder and mystery of God in Christ lying in a manger as a baby.

CTM Newsletter No 7 June 2011

Here is another brief digest of CTM news since January 2011 sent to those who have subscribed on the CTM website. Please let us have comments, further information and ideas. CTM is a network, not an organization, and so the flow of information is one of the most important commodities available to us!

Loder Conference: Stop Press News

There is growing interest in this important event convened by CTM at Princeton, and planning continues with a number of people worldwide having offered papers, but we have decided to postpone it until Spring 2012. We believe that this will increase the quality of the symposium, give more time for making the event known, will avoid a clash with 4-14 Global Summit in Singapore, and will be

CTM Newsletter No 6 January 2011

On behalf of the directors of CTM I wish you a new year in which the light of Christ shines on your path as you seek to follow Him. We hope that this digest of CTM news since May 2010 will be an encouragement in the months ahead.

CTM Australasia

In June 2010 I had the privilege of meeting members of CTM Australia in Melbourne (and then reporting to the board progress and ideas). Three of the papers given are available on the CTM website, and there is also a statement produced by the group. One of the issues we explored was how the growing number of people in Australia interested in Child Theology might connect most effectively with each other. The hope is that

CTM Newsletter No 5 May 2010

Here is a digest of CTM news since July 2009:

Directors

The Board of Directors is drawn from around the world. The benefits of this for a movement that seeks to model networking that reflects in some measure the nature of the Kingdom of Heaven are self-evident. At the same time it is a challenge to find time and ways of getting together to do justice to our responsibilities and the growing movement that we seek to serve.  So telecoms (a la Skype) are a staple form of meeting, with the aim of getting together face to face once a year, whenever possible piggy-backing to save money.

The next such meeting will be at the end of June 2010 in London UK.  If there
