Immigrant Evangelical Churches in Europe and Social Integration: Mapping the phenomenon. A lecture with the opportunity of questions from the audience
Lecture by Dr. Sébastien Fath with the opportunity for questions from the audience
In Europe many new immigrant evangelical churches have arisen in the past decades. What does this mean for the established churches, how do these newcomers integrate and how do the existing local churches deal with that? Dr. Fath will take us into the dynamic world of these new faith communities.
The program is offered by the Department of Religious Studies and Missiology and is intended for theology students, for those involved in these new immigrant churches, and certainly also for elders, pastors and other leaders of the established Protestant and Evangelical churches. Dr. Fath's lecture will be introduced by Prof. Dr. Pieter Boersema.
Sébastien Fath is a French professional historian and has a Ph.D from the Sorbonne University. Also trained in Sociology, he is the main French specialist in the study of Evangelical Protestantism. Author of fifteen books, he is a permanent researcher at the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). He is a full member of the Group for the Study of Religions and Secularity (GSRL), a research team working on religion and secularism. As a social scientist and a citizen, he focuses on cross-cultural reflexion on Civil Society, Politics and Religion.
This lecture will take place on February 14, 2013 from 14:00 - 16:00 hrs at the ETF.
