This report and accompanying recorded conversation presents the findings of a research project carried out by four researchers at the University of Roehampton with the goal of exploring the pedagogical challenges faced by lecturers teaching ministerial theology in a university context to students from non-traditional community churches which are often charismatic/pentecostal with much membership drawn from Black communities.
This study presents initial findings which can be applied towards understanding the learning challenges faced by such students, and their cultural, theological, ecclesiological and work/family contexts.
