Harvest Bible College announces our sixth annual research conference where this year we will reimagine the relationship between theology and contemporary Christian ministry. Call For Papers We invite interested scholars, including postgraduate students, lecturers and ministers, to submit proposals for papers to be given at this year’s conference. You might especially consider something along these lines: • The concept of practical theology. • How the discourse of practical theology has developed over the past century. • How theology relates to ministry “at the coalface.” • Any topic related to practical theology and contemporary ministry.
Our keynote speaker this year is Professor Mark Cartledge, Professor of Practical Theology at Regent University, USA and the authors of several books on practical theology from a charismatic perspective, such as Practical Theology (Paternoster, 2003) and The Mediation of the Spirit (Eerdmans, 2015).
The Research Committee will evaluate proposals before the program is finalised. Successful presenters at the conference will be invited to turn their papers into peer-reviewed articles for the Journal of Contemporary Ministry.
Submitting a Paper Proposal Proposals should be around 200 words in length and should contain: • A working title • A clear description of the ideas and arguments you will present. • Details of you as presenter, including previous and current studies and presentation experience. Please send your proposal before May 31st to Dr Jon Newton, Harvest Bible College, P.O. Box 9183, Scoresby, Vic. 3179 or to firstname.lastname@example.org
