OCTOBER 7-11, 2013


Cooperation, on all levels, is crucial for a successful mission. During AMA convention, we will encourage the Asian churches to support mission movement in Asia. For that effort, we will refine partnership and cooperation between the churches and mission organizations through communication, exchanging our resources, and training to create successful relationships.


During AMA convention we will be analyzing theologies, strategies, methods and models that have been used by churches all over the world in the mission field. The aim is to measure how substantial each aspect has been in the journey of missions. As the role of non-western churches are increasing in the 21st century, we will find what the best mission model is to further facilitate the roles in Asian countries.


We will evaluate the effects of discipleship by looking at how churches around the world, especially Asian churches, have put discipleship into practice in mission fields. We recognize that we are facing new challenges as we prepare ourselves for missions in the 21st century. We will identify these challenges and see how understanding renewed discipleship models could help to overcome the struggles in the future.
