John Short (left) has been studying at Oak Hill in preparation for working in Spain.
John says: "I felt that Oak Hill was the best place to be, both for sound doctrine and theology, and also the skills to be able to communicate the truths of Jesus in a cross-culturally acceptable way."
Theology for Crossing Cultures
The world church has changed. No longer do the majority of Christians live in the West. No longer are missionaries going out with only a Bible in their hands to preach the gospel to the heathen. We rejoice in millions of brothers and sisters throughout the world with enthusiasm for evangelism.
But there are still large areas of the world where the church is weak or the gospel unknown. Other faiths are not static in their growth or influence. They make themselves evident not only in their homelands, but on the streets of every city in the West. Urban Britain is a multi-cultural society.
