Dale becomes adjunct faculty at ACTS Seminaries

Dale has been teaching "Contemporary Theology” in Japanese at Japan Bible Seminary in Tokyo one semester per year for the past 14 years. He is now also adjunct faculty at ACTS Seminaries of Trinity Western University located in greater Vancouver BC Canada.

Dale begins teaching “Church Planting Theology” in the fall semester of 2016 and “Asian Theologies” in the spring or fall of 2017. These new graduate level courses offered by ACTS Seminaries are scheduled for alternating years. They will be live streamed from Tokyo Multicultural Church or wherever Dale is located on a home assignment. All requirements, including research, can be done online.

This expansion of Dale’s theological education ministry provides ongoing graduate theological educational opportunities for missionaries in Japan (or anywhere), helps TMC develop future leaders, and might encourage some Canadian seminary students to consider internships and future ministry in Tokyo.

And this development converges with our personal mission statement:

The purpose of our lifetime ministry in Japan is to model and encourage BOTH the vision for making disciples of Jesus Christ through compassionate church planting AND the development of evangelical theology that gives rise to that vision.
