On Tuesday 9 December 2008 the Hollenweger Center organises a forum on Transnational African Pentecostalism. The meeting is open to all who are interested!
Dr. Richard Burgess, university of Birmingham and former lecturer in Jos, Nigeria, will present a paper on African theologies. Pastor Olowu, National and European coordinator of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and also formerly taught Public Policy in Graduate Schools in Nigeria and the Netherlands will be speaking on the mission of this church in Europe. Furthermore, two presentations will be given by students about their research on transnational African Pentecostalism, leadership issues and impact on other churches. A discussion panel will then kick off the discussion that will presumably last into lunchtime. The discussion panel will be chaired by prof. dr AF Droogers (director Hollenweger center). Participants in the discussion panel will be prof. dr. ME Brinkman, Anna Quaas (researcher on Nigerian-initiated Pentecostal churches in Germany), prof. dr. B. Meyer and prof. dr. C. van der Laan.
