We are delighted to present our official calendar of events for the Spring 2022 semester.
This spring we are offering three types of events, each 90 minutes long.
- Meet the Author: Video interviews with authors of recent noteworthy books in the fields of Mission Studies, World Christianity, and Intercultural Theology.
- Webinars and Panel Discussions: Specialized mini-lectures or panel discussions featuring themes in Mission Studies, World Christianity, and Intercultural Theology.
- In the Studio: Informal visits with artists from around the world who see their work as an expression of faith.
Each event is $15. You can register for the full schedule of 10 events for $120 (20% off) or you can also subscribe to 5 events of your choice for $67.50 (10%)
In an effort to strengthen the network of future leaders in the church and the academy, doctoral or postdoctoral students in Mission Studies, World Christianity, Intercultural Theology or related fields are invited to participate free of charge in any or all online events.
In addition, all current PTS students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate free of charge in any or all OMSC online events.
