Asia-Pacific academic leaders encourage discipleship in education system

by | 14 Sep 2018

A group of academic deans and presidents from Church of the Nazarene educational institutes across the denomination's Asia-Pacific Region gathered 21-25 August in Bali, Indonesia, to brainstorm ways to better incorporate discipleship into the regional educational system. 

Despite the geographical and cultural differences between the educational institutions, the meeting allowed for everyone’s voices and ideas to be heard and shared. 

Regional Education Coordinator John Moore organized the event. Presenters included International Board of Education Commissioner Dan Copp, Regional Director Mark Louw, and Maggie Bailey, executive director of Higher Education Board and Strategy Development.

Dick Eugenio, academic dean of Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary, said that though they acknowledged the trials ahead, the leaders were inspired and ready to tackle the future.

“The meeting was overall hopeful in tone,” Eugenio said. “Armed with a radical optimism of grace, the delegates went back to their respective areas of responsibilities with greater passion and conviction of the integral role of theological education in the disciple-making mission of the church.”

The Cameroon flag is a vertical tricolor of green, red and yellow, defaced with a five-pointed star in its center. The center stripe is thought to stand for unity: red is the colour of unity, and the star is referred to as "the star of unity." The yellow stands for the sun and also the savannas in the northern part of the country, while the green is for the forests in the southern part of Cameroon.
