The university campus, particularly those with a large student and faculty population, is a melting pot of cultures, peoples of diverse nationalities, and racial, ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds. The pluralistic university is thus a fertile mission field for the gospel of Christ.
On Tuesday, 16 March 2021 at 1400 GMT/UTC, Dr. Marlene Hines, the Society’s librarian and former director and project manager in the Jamaican Ministry of Education, will discuss how campus ministries and academics can bridge the diverse barriers that exist within the university community as a means of reaching people where they are through intercultural dialogue.
The UNESCO Media and Information Literacy and Intercultural Dialogue (MILID) strategy will therefore be explored as a Campus Ministry approach that has the potential to bridge and breakdown barriers that exist within the university community by the application of various media and communication strategies in the presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the university community.
Before attending the webinar, please read Dr. Hines’ essay on MILID found in the Society’s Library.
