The Centre for Church and Mission in the West (CCMW) brings together experts in the disciplines of practical theology and missiology who have a shared interest in the sustainable innovation of the church and its mission in the secularizing parts of the world. While drawing on a wide range of theological research traditions, the CCMW concentrates on the study and innovation of Christian practices, inside and outside the church. Working in an ecumenical spirit, the CCMW operates in the Reformed tradition with a view to renewing this tradition for the improvement of church practices and the mission of the Christian church in the West.
The Centre is based at and facilitated by the Theological University Kampen (Netherlands). Its members conform to the research-mission of the TUK in order to direct their research at “God in the reality of his revelation”. From this broad approach, the CCMW wants to direct theological research to enrich the understanding of and practice within church and society in the context of the West. Its current research programma is titled ‘Salvation in the 21st Century’.
