The Christian Conference of Asia (CCA) has announced the decision to hold the Congress of Asian Theologians (CATS) – IX in Medan, Indonesia.
Originally scheduled to be held in Sri Lanka from 5 to 10 August 2019, the venue of CATS – IX has been shifted to Medan, Indonesia. However, the original dates scheduled (from 5 to 10 August 2019) will remain unchanged.
Those who have already applied to attend the CATS-IX as per the original notification will be informed about the selection from 25 June, 2019 onwards.
As uncertainty cropped up during the registration process towards the end of April with regard to the venue and the Easter day bombing in Sri Lanka, several applicants could not complete the registration formalities or forward their specific request for travel bursaries. In this situation, CCA will accept additional nominations and registrations and receive new applications until 20 June, 2019.
The CATS-IX will be hosted by Gereja Bethel Indonesia (GBI) in Medan, North Sumatra in Indonesia.
GBI is a member church of the Communion of Churches in Indonesia (CCI).
The theme of CATS-IX will be ‘Reconciliation, Renewal and Restoration: Divine Indicative and Human Imperative’.
More than 100 Asian theologians and Asian Diaspora theologians including Asian descendants from different parts of the world are expected to participate in the CATS-IX.
