ABSTRACT

The world is in the midst of rapid change due to powerful forces such as globalization. Although these changes have led to a greater sense of interdependence and interconnectedness than ever known before and tremendous advances on many fronts, the prevalence of conflict, injustice, and environmental degradation around the globe has also heightened people’s awareness of their differences and the need for all Christians to be actively engaged in God’s mission. In light of these concerns, the need for a missional level of social action and intercultural competence is of critical importance. The predominant models of education alone are no longer the optimal means for addressing the emerging missiological realities of the 21st century. Missiological education at all levels needs to focus on a learning process that serves a missional purpose and will provide Christians with new experiences, in addition to new skills and knowledge to be responsibly engaged in missional social action. This research analyzes the degree to which the principles of experiential education theories and practices can inform and enhance missiological education. “Essential Ingredients” for a “Missional Experiential Education” (MEE) are presented, providing insights for an educational praxis.
