Consortium partners

OSIMS / Introduction / Consortium partners

OSIMS seeks to employ a so called “lead partner” consortium approach in collaborating with other organisations, networks and institutions, depending on different projects and initiatives.

Each of the partners add their strength to the consortium for the purpose of implementing a particular program. In this sense OSIMS is a platform of networks, organisations and institutions that seek a collaborative way of working, having known each other for a long time, and having cooperated in other, more informal ways.

The Central and Eastern European Association for Mission Studies (CEEAMS) is an international and interdenominational platform for reflection on missiological issues and practice established in 2002 as an informal network, and facilitates a variety of initiatives in missiology in the region.

In 2015 CEEAMS became a legal entity as an Association under Hungarian law with missiologists from ten countries (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Kyrgyzstan, Moldavia, Romania, Russia, the United Kingdom and Ukraine) serving as founding members. The majority of them are young missiologists under the age of forty with various church affiliations such as Methodist, Pentecostal, Orthodox, the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren, Baptist, Reformed, and Lutheran.

Through its members, the Association functions as a network organization actively stimulating the study of missiology, initiating research projects and knowledge dissemination on the praxis of mission in Central and Eastern Europe.

The goal of the Lausanne-Orthodox Initiative is to reflect constructively on the history of relationships between Orthodox and Evangelicals to work towards better understanding, and encourage reconciliation and healing where wounds exist. Through this process, Evangelicals and Orthodox will be mutually enriched and strengthened in the work of mission, working towards mutual respect, support and cooperation in the spirit of our Lord’s prayer for His Church in John 17.
