“My vision for the whole programme is to infuse the church with greater creativity.

“What we offer is this cross-cultural lens and to always be looking to the marginalised, the ones in whom Jesus was most interested – and to be going beyond the boundaries of where church has been to see where Jesus is.

Dr Cathy Ross
Oxford Pioneer Mission Training Leader

“We’re hoping to create a movement of post-colonial missionaries who will be able to work across cultures and races.”

Dr Harvey Kwiyani
African Christianity Programme Lead
