2019 Theological Education in Singapore: Retrospect and Prospect

On 29 September 2018, seven theological institutions in Singapore came together at a conference organised by the Ethos Institute for Public Christianity to discuss their common ministry of theological education.

The theme of the conference, ‘Theological Education in Singapore: Retrospect and Prospect’ invites the participating institutions to reflect on their unique beginnings and histories, as well as their shared mission to train and nurture the future generation of pastors, leaders and missionaries.

The papers presented at the conference by the principals and presidents of the seven seminaries are published in this volume in the Ethos Engagement Series. It is hoped that those who are similarly involved in the important work of ministerial formation will benefit from the perspectives and insights that this collection of essays offers.
