Third Culture Church Planting: Third Culture Spirit-Empowered Leadership for the 21st Century
This Focus Group aims to discover and cultivate a third-culture church planting process with innovative systems, intentional evangelistic third-culture discipleship, and a new contextualized language led by third-culture spirit-empowered faithful fruitful leaders spreading scriptural holiness for the transformation of glocalized villages. Every doctoral student in this focus group will participate in sundry discussions, with foci on biblical, theological, cultural, socio-spatial, geographical, and other influences critical to third-culture church planting and development in the Hispanic Latina contexts in the USA and Latin America. Via case studies and site visits, participants will reflect on various third-church planting strategies and ministries in diverse cultural settings that will respond to the complexities of our times.
