Pastoral and Practical Theology Network of Aotearoa New Zealand

Conference 2014

PPTNZ Conference 2014 - Discipleship and Formation in Community

Dates: Friday and Saturday, 21-22nd November 2014

Location: Knox College, Dunedin

Registration Fee: $30 ($20 for one day)

Optional lodging and breakfast available at Knox College for $75 per night


We are seeking presentations that address the conference theme or that speak to any topic related to congregational life and Christian ministry in Aotearoa. We hope that graduates and current students of MMin, MTheol, DMin and PhD programs who studied topics related to congregations will consider presenting a summary of their research or one aspect of their research.

We are seeking papers for 40 minute slots, which should include about 10 minutes of discussion.

As a rule of thumb, you talk at about 100 words a minute, so a 30 minute paper (in a 40 minute slot) would be about 3,000 words.

In submitting a proposed paper, please include a 50-100 word abstract of the proposed paper.

These should be sent to Lynne Baab at , or if necessary by post to her at the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Otago, PO Box 56, Dunedin, and should be received by July 30, 2014.

Please forward this email to anyone who you think would enjoy this conference. Please encourage post-graduate students to think about offering a paper.

Looking forward to seeing you in Dunedin,

Lynne Baab, Stephen Garner, Craig Preston, Linda Flett, Graeme Flett and Edward Prebble
