Ecclesial Futures is an international, ecumenical peer-reviewed journal. It publishes high-quality, original research and theological reflection on the development and transformation of local Christian communities and the systems that support them as they join in the mission of God in the world.
Ecclesial Futures, as a completely new journal in 2020 brings together, at least in the initial phases, two groups of scholar-practitioners.
The first is a self-organizing and invitation-only annual conference of around 20-30 people who meet together under the banner of The International Research Consortium: Researching Missional Congregations (IRC). They include people from the USA, Europe, Australia and Africa and cross several denominations, mainly Protestant. They meet to share existing research projects and form a learning community around how local churches can be transformed by working with the theological concept of the Missio Dei.
The second is a “Study Group” called “Christian Communities and Mission” within the International Association of Mission Studies (IAMS) https://missionstudies.org/ which is the internationally recognized association for mission studies. It has a large, diverse membership and is truly global and ecumenical combining Mainline Protestant, Pentecostal, Roman Catholic and Orthodox participants.
