International theological education conference planned for Jamaica in June 2013

The 8th Baptist International Conference on Theological Education (BICTE) takes place in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, from June 28-30, 2013.

The event will focus on the theme, In Step with the Spirit: Perspectives on Pneumatology within The Worldwide Baptist Family. It will include a wide ranging set of papers and discussions from Baptist leaders, pastors, theologians, and educators from all six regions of the BWA – Africa, Asia Pacific, Caribbean, Europe, Latin America and North America.

Topics to be explored include Baptist Contribution to Theological Reflection on the Doctrine of the Holy Spirit, The Holy Spirit and Social Justice, and Emerging Issues in the Theological Formation of Ministerial Students.

BICTE, planned by the Baptist World Alliance® (BWA), is normally held every five years. The 7th BICTE was held in Prague, Czech Republic, in July 2008.

Registration for the theological education conference can be done at the BWA website at www.bwanet.org.

BICTE immediately precedes the BWA Annual Gathering, which will also be held in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, from July 1-6, 2013. Information on the Annual Gathering can be read via the BWA website. Online registration for the Gathering begins October 26.
