Vol. 3 No. 2 (2023): Current Issues in Communication and Mission in Canada

In this special Canadian edition (edited by EMS Canada Vice President, Narry Santos), five authors address diverse and contemporary topics on mission from coast to coast. Stuart van Koh (pseudonym) contributes to the growing field of missional homiletics by exploring the role of the preacher’s body in Pauline missiology. In a related topic, Phil Wagler uses the language of “the body tells the tale” as a means to communicate the gospel through the reconciled body of Christ. By understanding arts as language, Lorn Gieck argues that the evangelical church needs aesthetics skills to engage a variety of cultures and subcultures in a Canadian postmodern world. James Bryun reflects on the realities, challenges, and opportunities of workplace ministry in Canada. Finally, in the context of Bible translation, Doug Trick and Hollie Butler discusses and evaluates the “results-based management” as a means to measure success in Christian mission.
