2022 Conference

EPTA Conference 2022

Pentecostal Theology: Mainstream and Extremes

Call for Papers

The European Pentecostal Theological Association is seeking proposals for papers to be presented at the 2022 annual conference. The meeting will take place at the College of Theology and Social Sciences in Warsaw, Poland from 4 to 7 July 2022. Further conference details will follow in due course.

The conference explores the nature, purpose, and focus of Pentecostal theology in the late modern world. It seeks to analyse and discuss what may be identified as the ‘mainstream’ and the ‘extremes’ in Pentecostal theology and practice worldwide. The theme invites reflection on the diversity of Pentecostal theological methods, themes, doctrines, and practices. EPTA encourages research on Pentecostal and Charismatic movements in Europe and further afield, and it welcomes theological, biblical, historical, and interdisciplinary presentations. Preference is given to proposals that relate to the conference theme.

Proposals should be 300-500 words in length and include (1) the paper’s title; (2) author’s name, institutional affiliation, and email address; (3) an abstract or summary of the argument; (4) preference for either a 60 minute or 30 minute presentation (the timings include a 20 minute or 10 minute Q&A slot respectively).

Proposals should be sent by 31st December 2021 to Simo Frestadius, Chair of EPTA, at simo.frestadius@regents-tc.ac.uk. Notification of acceptance is expected by 31st January 2022.
