a world deluged by irrelevant information, clarity is power.” – Yuval Harari
Matthew 15:10 Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand.”
1 Corinthians 14:15 So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding.
The implications of the COVID-19 virus on global missions will be far reaching. A revival of ISIS in Mozambique will impact the SADEC region dramatically. The more than 75 million uprooted people on earth are shaping faith in a new way, especially in the Middle East. Proxy wars in Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan will reinvent nations and regions. How will Mr. Joe Biden, the newly elected president of the USA, impact a nation that sends more missionaries than any other country on earth? Will the Church be REACTIVE or PROACTIVE in her approach?
At dia-LOGOS we seek to facilitate new mission initiatives in a post COVID-19 world. We are a group of mission consultants with more than 50 years of joint mission experience. We have access to highly experienced mission specialists across the globe that will be able to address current events and global trends and assist the Church to engage in constructive, strategic and meaningful missional activities.
dia-LOGOS is an online group discussion platform, where we provide church consulting. Engage church online and gain information on Christian missions, missionary opportunities, etc. in South Africa.
The VISION of dia-LOGOS is to:
We desire to both engage and facilitate discussions of importance and spiritual significance within the Christian community. One of the greatest needs in a season where we daily face the challenges of suspicion, hatred, intolerance and division is “to come and reason together.” Our consultants will facilitate discussions on relevant and contemporary topics.
We seek to find truth in a world of deception, to separate fact from fiction. Fake news, hoaxes, and conspiracy theories have become the epidemic of the 21st century.
Our team of consultants will research posts on social media and either confirm the truth or expose the lie.
we want to understand the seasons of opportunity and how global events are pointing to a Sovereign and loving God, preparing souls for the message of Christ. In a world obsessed with knowledge, clarity is power. Our consultants have access to highly experienced mission specialists across the globe that will be able to address current events and global trends and assist the Church to engage in constructive, strategic and meaningful missional activities.
The STATEMENT OF FAITH of dia-LOGOS
We believe in God the Father, God the Son, Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe in the church universal, recognising the diversity of expressions of our faith.
