Contextualized Approaches for a Globalized Japan Led by: Gary Fujino
is presentation is focused around two distinct questions: 1. How might globalization affect the way
that the gospel is presently being contextualized in Japan? 2. Can the Christian identity of Japanese be strengthened or weakened for contextualization by the influence of the global church and by globaliza- tion alike? In today’s post-modern and globally connected world, who are the Japanese? And how is the Japanese church presently relating to the worldwide body of Christ? e present impact of the gos- pel message and its “translation” into Japanese culture for mission will be examined from an outsider missionary perspective. e full title of the workshop is “Contextualized Approaches for a Globalized Japan: e impact of technology, demographic shifts and identity formation on both sides of conver- sion.”
Discipling the 4/14 Window Led by: Barbara Winter and Pamela Ayres
e 4/14 Window idea recognizes that children are the most receptive people group to the gospel and
are positioned to be a force to bring others to faith in Christ. Assuming that each has a lifetime to live out and share faith, they also have the potential to be long-term agents of change. e 1.2 billion chil- dren around the world who are “at risk” (as slaves, orphans, prostitutes, etc.) will also be our focus in this workshop as we seek to learn the full implications of Mark 10:14: “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” is workshop will be co-led by Pamela Ayres who serves with Kids in Ministry International and Barbara Winter, wife of the late Dr. Ralph Winter, founder of the U.S. Center for World Mission and the Frontier Mission Fellowship. Opportunity for sharing ideas and resources among participants will be encouraged.
