Abstract

JACOBS, Pierre J.  and  VAN ECK, Ernest. Globalised mission as opportunity. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.3, pp.01-09. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/HTS.V71I3.2871.

Globalisation develops at a staggering pace that envelopes and infiltrates local South African communities in various ways. Through technology a person can have access to anything today. Should the church try to keep up, or compete with such a reality? This article aims to encourage the church to develop a responsible missional character, which embraces the opportunities globalisation offers - to be a participative forum in a community comprising of more than religious people. Through re-evaluating the church's missional intent, by shifting the paradigm away from self-centred outcomes, the church should contribute to such a community's articulation of faith.
