Middle East Consultation 2016: The Refugee and the Body of Christ

MEC 2016 Poster

The church in the Middle East is experiencing a time of unprecedented change. There exist significant challenges, and yet at the same time unimaginable opportunities.

  • How has the local and global Body of Christ been responding to the current refugee crisis?
  • What are the implications of this crisis for the church of the future?

The Middle East Consultation 2016 (MEC 2016) will explore the long-term implications of the significant number of refugees who now regularly fellowship with other members of the Body of Christ. By doing this, IMES seeks to encourage healthy practices between and within different expressions of the local church in the Middle East, Europe and beyond. In response to the demographic changes currently taking place, MEC 2016 will be creating the time and space to reflect on the challenges and opportunities facing the MENA church in the present and to envision the church of the future in and beyond the MENA region.

MEC 2016 will include first-hand testimony by members of refugee communities, those involved in refugee ministry within and beyond the MENA region, as well as theological, Biblical and sociological reflection on the critical issues facing Christ’s Body in light of recent events. Come and be part of these critical discussions!
