Asian Ecumenical Institute (AEI)–2022 to offer training for prospective ecumenical leaders
Humas Moderamen |
The month-long ecumenical course Asian Ecumenical Institute (AEI), designed to train prospective young Asian ecumenists and church leaders, will be held from 19 September to 14 October 2022 on the Payap University campus in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Organised annually by the Christian Conference of Asia (CCA), the AEI has been providing opportunities for young people across Asia since 2016 to learn about ecumenism and the ecumenical movement.
More than 150 young people sponsored and recommended by their respective churches and ecumenical councils have been trained as ecumenical enablers during the last six annual sessions.
The theme of AEI–2022 is ‘God of Hope, Sustain Your Creation in Harmony’.
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021, the AEI sessions were held virtually. However, this year, AEI–2022 will be conducted as an in-person training course at the CCA headquarters in Payap University, Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Admissions to AEI–2022 will be limited to 20 participants between the ages of 25 and 35.
Internationally acclaimed ecumenists, theologians, biblical scholars, and social scientists will be the resource persons facilitating the training.
The deadline for receiving applications is 12 August 2022.
