Martin Robinson

Martin Robinson is principal and chief executive of ForMission College.  Martin was born in India of missionary parents and then brought up in Scotland where his father was a church planter.  When Martin was in his early twenties he trained for the ministry, and his first church was in the inner city of Birmingham.  This multi-ethnic congregation was engaged in church planting, and Martin, together with his wife, Lynda led one of the new church plants.  After thirteen years in local ministry, Martin went to work for the Bible Society in the UK in a variety of roles. In that period he was the director of mission and theology. Martin has written many books on the broad theme of mission, including Faith of the Unbeliever and Invading Secular Space. In 2002 Martin became the national director of Together in Mission. In 2008 he became the principal of Springdale College. These two organisations are now known as ForMission. The goal of ForMission is to prepare workers for the harvest. 




Multi-Cultural Church Planting

How can our churches reach people from multiple cultures? What does it look like to plant such a church? We will discuss core principles and appropriate training in creating a successful multi-cultural church planting strategy. In thinking this through, we need to remember that there are many cultures even within what looks like a mono-cultural context. For example, class and age group form important cultural barriers as does the total immersion of people in a secular worldview that has no room for God. Furthermore, the church could be said to constitute a particular culture or even sub-culture which those of us in the church need to understand.
