The Lausanne Regional Consultation on the Teaching of Theology of Work was conceived at the Boston Meeting in 2011, after conversations of finding ways to advance the Cape Town Commitment in the area of “Truth and the Workplace.” This consultation topic was selected in particular because of its relevance and significance in the context of South East Asia.
A desired outcome of this consultation was to chart a fresh way forward in renewing the relevance of theological education for the equipping of God’s people, who spend most of their waking hours in the workplace.
As a pilot initiative, this consultation seeks to identify the major gaps and inadequacies in the existing mode and curriculum in seminaries, Bible colleges and graduate schools, as well as non-school settings, in the integration of workplace theology with various traditional subjects.
It also seeks to catalyze and encourage the sharing of ideas, resources, and collaboration between the stakeholders within the region, with a view of bridging the gaps and needs.
