The aim of the Women’s Centre for Cross Cultural Missions Research is to encourage, support and facilitate women cross-cultural workers undertaking Coursework Masters research projects and higher degree research. The Centre provides a home-base for women missions scholars to develop an accredited identity, access library resources and be mentored by more experienced women missiologists. This ‘home’ is a virtual concept. It is an international network connecting in an online environment, in order to reach as many potential scholars as possible.
The Women’s Centre for Cross Cultural Missions Research adheres to the Lausanne Movement Cape Town Commitment.
There are three different membership options for participating in the Women’s Centre for Cross Cultural Missions Research.
Mentors are women cross-cultural missions practitioners who are actively involved in cross-cultural missions research and are committed to supervising and mentoring new researchers.
Associate Researchers are women who are involved in cross-cultural missions research but not available or able to mentor new researchers.
Collaborative Partners are men or women who are involved in cross-cultural missions and who are collaborating with the Centre on research projects.
If you would like to become a member of the Women’s Centre for Cross Cultural Missions Research, please email Evelyn Hibbert, explaining how you would like to be involved.
Study with the Centre
It is possible to do an ACT Coursework Masters research project (EM782, EM783, EM795, EM796) or a HDR research degree (MTh, DMin, PhD, ThD) with a supervisor from the Women’s Centre for Cross Cultural Missions Research.
If you are interested in doing a research project under the Centre, email Evelyn Hibbert so that she can discuss your project with you.
Do research with the Centre
If your organisation or you, personally, have questions or issues you would like to be researched that involve women in cross-cultural ministry, email Evelyn Hibbert to discuss whether the Centre’s researchers may be able to work with you on your research project.
Support the Centre
Membership of the centre is on a voluntary basis. This means that researchers are not paid by the Centre. As most of the researchers do not have permanent academic employment, their research is done on a self-supporting, “shoe string” basis. If you would like to help fund research done by women relating to cross-cultural missions please email Evelyn Hibbert.
