2017 Annual Conference report


The annual conference of CEEAMS was held in Osijek, Croatia between 13-17 February 2017. Its theme was: Love, Live, and Delight: Conversations in Central and Eastern Europe on Present day documents on Mission.

The participants reflected on mission documents, that were published in recent years: The Cape Town Commitment (The Lausenne Movement), Together Towards Life (The World Council of Churches), Evangelii Gaudium (Pope Francis), and the Mission of the Orthodox Church in Today’s World (The Holy and Great Council of the Orthodox Church).

One of the aims of the conference was to identify key themes which are missiologically relevant for churches and Christian communities in Central and Eastern Europe and find ways of their translatability, both at academic level and in mission praxis.

“I was very happy to meet with colleagues with similar work and working in a similar field of missionary work in Europe and beyond. I’m interested in their projects and research and look forward to further cooperation.”
