  • Changes in American Protestant Missions, 1910 to the Present | Wheaton
    examination of sister church relationships between congregations in the United States and the Global South Heather Curtis analysis of the impact of early Pentecostal missions on global Christianity Peter Bush s look at Canadian Presbyterian missions to Canada s native peoples Mark Ellingsen s appraisal of changes in African American missions in the 20th century An examination of the role of Wesley hagiography in Methodist missions around the world by Jason Vickers View the IBMR issue Saving the World The Changing Terrain of American Protestant Missions 1910 to the Present The Edinburgh Conference Western Missionary Assumptions of 1910 The Edinburgh conference planned the evangelization of the world but fewer than 20 delegates came from outside the West Delegates assumed that their errand into the world required Western leadership They knew where the mission field was whom they needed to proselytize and why they needed to do it Certain that Christianity and civilization were divinely ordained to proceed from the West to the world they approached their task with enormous resolve in their message and its transforming potential for human history and eternal destiny A Diverse Less Western Centered Missionary Reality Despite its claims Edinburgh marked both a high point in Protestant missions and the end of an era Missions historian Andrew Walls noted recently that in the century since Edinburgh all of the Conference s assumptions about Christianity were proved wrong The evangelization of the world proceeded but in other hands than Edinburgh delegates imagined making clear that the vigor of global Christian expansion did not depend on the West Robust forms of popular Christianity like Pentecostalism that were not on mainline Protestant radar screens in 1910 have become unstoppable as they have moved around the world In 1910 no one imagined that Christians outside the West could perceive the West as a mission field Rapid Protestant growth in Africa Asia and South America makes it evident that Christianity will thrive with or without American missionaries or resources How could Edinburgh where people who devoted their lives to evangelism sought to map its future have been so wrong about the future course of Western missions How do congregations relate to the new Christian diversity in the United States the vast non denominational sector much of which embraces a charismatic style and the growing Pentecostal movement especially among Latino African and Asian immigrants How does the presence of large groups of non Western students interacting with American faculty influence discourse on missions in seminaries and congregations Obviously some of the changes in American Protestant conceptions of missions are profound A comparison between 1910 and 2010 allows shifts to become clearer The ISAE Project Events The ISAE sought to explore these important issues through a grant competition as well as a series of commissioned research projects Many project participants fanned out across the nation to present their findings at specially convened seminars held at seminaries including Fuller Evangelical Theological Seminar in Pasadena CA May 2010 Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Louisville KY
