Asia Missions Association

THEME: GLOBALIZATION AND MISSION

ama

  • The world has become a global village as communication and technology developed.
  • Ideological, social and cultural barriers have been broken down by tides of globalization.
  • Mission has become a multi-ethnic enterprise and is from everywhere to everywhere.
  • Globalization impacts missionaries and their mission strategies whether they accept it or not.
  • The new world needs new strategies, attitudes, and understanding of mission.

About

ASIA MISSIONS ASSOCIATION

Asia Missions Association (AMA) was born in 1975 as a result of The All-Mission Consultation in 1973, in Seoul, South Korea. AMA has since conducted the triennial convention to promote missions in Asia, and has developed an Asian church partnership to extend the vision of world mission to other continents.

EAST-WEST CENTER

for Missions Research and Development

East-West Center for Missions Research and Development(EWC/mrd) was established under the auspices of Asia Missions Association in 1973. EWC/mrd envisions to be a catalyst for the world mission movement in the 21st century. We aim to develop world-class leaders, produce cutting-edge mission researches and publications, and provide forums for discussions and sharing of ideas. We are in partnership with churches, missiological associations, mission structures and theological seminaries.

PHILIPPINE MISSIONS ASSOCIATION

The PHILIPPINE MISSIONS ASSOCIATION (PMA) is a partnership of evangelical mission agencies, local churches, denominational missions commissions, and cross-cultural missions training organizations. PMA was founded in 1983 by Dr. Met Castillo who served as PMA’s General Secretary until 1995. It was established to train, send, and receive missionaries. Its focus later became missions mobilization through uniting missions-minded churches and mission agencies in the Philippines to challenge, equip, and mobilize the Philippine Church to prioritize reaching the unreached peoples of the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
