    • The Celtic connection with southern Africa : tracing a genealogy of missionary spirituality

      Kritzinger, J.J. (Johan Jakob) (AOSIS OpenJournals Publishing, 2015-01-26)
      It is quite generally accepted that the missionary monks from the Celtic tradition in Ireland
 and Scotland played a significant role in the Christianisation of Europe during the Dark Ages.
 This is a story that should not be forgotten. It is also well known that this was preceded by
 the thorough evangelisation of Ireland and Scotland (and northeast England) itself by these
 Celtic monks. What is, however, not getting enough attention is the (much later) outreach
 to southern Africa coming from those same quarters. In this article an effort is made to give
 credit to this, and to trace the specific spirituality that made all this possible.

    • Winning hearts and minds : character formation in mission education with special reference to Lovedale Missionary Institution

      Duncan, Graham A. (Church History Society of Southern Africa, 2007-09-26)
      Character formation was the most pervasive subject in the
 curriculum of mission schools despite the fact that it was
 nowhere to be found on the timetable. It was a major tool
 in the Christianising/civilising process with a view to forming
 compliant Christians and destroying students’ commitments
 to their traditional cultures. Lovedale Missionary
 Institution is studied as a major locus of the transformation
 of black students through its WHAM (winning hearts and
 minds) programme. This transformation affected their spiritual,
 social, cultural and educational development.
    • AGS-pastore se belewenis van hulle teologiese opleiding

      Mare, Leonard P. (Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria, 2008-11-17)
      Theological training is in a crisis worldwide. Although the role that Theological Seminaries have fulfilled is acknowledged, there is a growing concern about the ability of these institutions to serve the upcoming generations of Christian leaders. Some warn they may not be well tailored for our post-modern age. Many people feel that the Seminary as an institution is in danger of extinction due to irrelevancy. Seminaries, in general, are perceived as not connecting to the needs of today's church. The Auckland Park Theological Seminary (ATS), whose training is the subject of this research, is not excluded from this concern of the Church for relevant theological training. Many pastors of the AFM of SA are of the opinion that the training offered at the ATS does not effectively train pastors for the ministry. The purpose of this article is to investigate and describe how pastors who studied at the ATS experienced their theological training, as well as to offer guidelines to the Church and the ATS to develop a more effective model for theological training.

    • Nuwe horison - verkenning ten opsigte van 'n sosiale geskiedenis van die Nederduitse Gereformeerde Sending

      Saayman, W. (Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria, 2009-05-25)
      The author chooses to write a social mission history of the DRC in order to relate important mission events properly to the developing political economy in South Africa. He chooses to follow the methodology described especially by Grundlingh and Hobsbawm. He sees mission history and church history as interchangeable, and views Christian history as an important rubric of general human history. He analyses the period 1934- 1961 in this article, and starts with the DRC mission policy established in 1935. The author points out a close entwinement of mission policy and political culture, in that "the solution of the native question" formed the central pivot in both mission and political policy. He analyses events around the publication of the Tomlinson Report to illustrate the link between mission policy and political culture (segregation/apartheid). There were also voices of protest against these developments, especially from people with missionary involvement. The author is convinced that there are various important areas for further research (which explains why he subtitled his article: "A reconnaisance in terms of social mission history"). Some of these areas are the relationship between mission and financial ability and the DRC's late involvement in urban mission. The author concludes with an ambivalent evaluation of DRC mission from a social historical perspective, but stresses that much more research is needed before any conclusive evaluation can be attempted.
    • Mormonism's Jesse Haven and the early focus on proselytising the Afrikaner at the Cape of Good Hope, 1853-1855

      Cannon, J.G. (Teologiese Fakulteit, Universiteit van Stellenbosch, 2007-12-11)
      The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as the Mormon church is officially known, has emphasised the Christian vocation to mission almost since its founding in the USA in April 1830. While Mormon historians have written a great deal about the denomination's success in West Africa very little has been written about Mormonism in South Africa. The present paper aims to fill part of the gap by relating the experience of one of Mormonism's first missionaries to the continent i.e. Jesse Haven. In a conclusion the question is addressed whether Mormonism's American origins or its drive to gather in an American Zion made it just too foreign or too un-Afrikaans to be compatible with the emerging identity of the Afrikaans nation.
    • Rick Warren, purpose driven en die 40 dae doelgerigte lewe veldtog

      Nel, Malan; Ungerer, Andre Gerhardus (Reformed Theological College, Faculty of Theology, University of Pretoria, 2007-08-06)
      More than 532 churches/congregations in South-Africa have already purchased “The purpose driven campaign kit” and completed the 40 days campaign or are planning to do so. The name Rick Warren is synonymous with "Purpose driven" and the popularity of his work as well as his influence in this country, justify a study of this nature. This study wants to determine the effect of Rick Warren’s 40 days of purpose in the circuit of Klerksdorp of the Nederduitsch
 Hervormde Kerk van Afrika. Warren provides five purposes for a believer in the church in his book, A purpose driven life, which
 according to him is the church’s purpose of existence. The hypothesis of this study is that the 40 days of purpose is an excellent project for congregations to discover their purpose of existence, while it also strengthens the process of building the local congregation. Eight congregations participated in the research project.
