McClure Lecture and WMI Conference 2024

Mission in the Margins: Lessons and Practices from the Global Church
W. Don McClure Lecture and WMI Conference 2024

Oct. 11-12, 2024
Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

In the emerging landscape of mission, refugees, migrants, and the church in the Global South—traditionally viewed as recipients of mission goods and services—have become a major source of innovation and leadership in the founding of new worshiping communities, the provision of community services, and the work of advocacy for justice around the world.

Our 2024 World Mission Initiative Conference theme is “Mission in the Margins: Lessons and Practices from the Global Church” and will highlight this paradigm shift in God’s mission and how we can learn from our siblings in Christ on the other sides of our world. As we’ve done for the last two conferences, this year we will again combine the conference with the annual W. Don McClure Lecture. This year’s conference will also coincide with one of our fall hybrid gatherings, where all students taking hybrid classes will gather on campus for learning and community building.

Please Note: Lodging is unavailable on campus during the conference. See below for a list of nearby hotels to assist in your search for accommodations.
