How we see the world, how we understand society and social context, how we make sense of ministry and ministers for today and tomorrow, and how we approach theological education are all related issues. The globalized world today highlights the importance of relations and community for business and political direction, and this has been talked of as “relational capital.” We also seek partnerships and strategic alliances because we all recognize that we can’t do it alone with our limited resources or simply because we need to make the best use of resources by networking with others to complement each other and to add strength and outreach to our efforts. Now that the world has become smaller and flatter than ever before and that we are more conscious of the global village, we have better opportunities to manifest the nature of global Christianity and to take theological education’s relational mandate, “energising community,” to all levels and to all contexts.
