This is an extensive and well-researched paper by Jim Memory of European Christian Mission (ECM). At fifty pages long, it’s a serious read, but if you are interested in understanding the general and spiritual context for Europe today and the implications for mission that this reality presents, then it’s worth the investment of a couple of hours of your time.
Jim Memory has served as a long term pioneering missionary into Spain (14 years) and is a member of the International Leadership Team of ECM. He is part of the Field Ministries Executive Team, the group that supervises the work of ECM missionaries across Europe, and he also leads the Vision and Strategy Group which has facilitated the development of ECM’s new strategic plan. Alongside his ECM responsibilities, Jim teaches the European modules on the MA in Contemporary Missiology at Redcliffe College (UK) and is one of the founding editors of Vista, Redcliffe’s research-based journal on crucial issues for mission in Europe.
