Historical Background

Conference name

Wheaton ‘83 - An International Evangelical Conference on the Nature and Mission of the Church

Conference venue

Billy Graham Center Building (500 E. College) Wheaton College campus, Wheaton, Illinois, United States of America

Conference dates

June 20-July 1, 1983

Conference theme

I Will Build My Church: The Nature and Mission of the Church

Conference background

The meeting was convened by the World Evangelical Fellowship (after being originally proposed by Bruce Nicholls, executive secretary of the WEF Theological Commission), in cooperation with about forty other Christian groups, including the Billy Graham Center, the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization, World Vision International, and Partnership in Mission.


The conference was, in fact, three different consultations going on simultaneously. These consultations were:

          The Mission of the Church in its Local Setting - dealt with the needs of local congregations

          The Church in New Frontiers for Missions - dealt with whether Christians should present the gospel across cultures in the modern world

          The Church in Response to Human Need - dealt with the ways that both evangelism and social concern are part of the biblical mission of the Church


Participants were selected by the executive committee and conference staff to reflect the diversity in the Evangelical Protestantism worldwide.

Conference purpose

“The purposes are outlined in the following goals:

1. To gain a Biblical understanding of the nature and mission of the church.

2. To bring integration between various aspects of the church.

3. To renew our obedience and commitment to the church’s ministry and mission.”

Attendance figures

Approximately 320 participants, about half of which came from Africa, Asia and Latin America. They represented fifty-nine countries. There were also another fifty staff members and reporters.

Financial support

Conference was run on a relatively modest level. Some contributions in labor and funds came WEF and the Billy Graham Center (both organizations also contributed staff). There also were fund raising efforts to have churches and Christian organizations act as sponsors. Participants also paid registration fees, $500 for individuals from Western countries, $50 for people from non-Western countries. The conference did have a deficit that various people and organizations helped to cover afterwards.

Post-conference resources

A letter summarizing the issues discussed, called Letter to the Churches, was prepared. It included statements from each of the three consultations. Papers from the conference were also circulated. Other projects and a newsletter were carried on by a Seattle office and Christian organizations in different parts of the world which served as regional center. The Seattle office terminated in December 1984.

Other significant information

 

During the first two days of the conference members of each of the three consultations debated the discussion papers. The third day they each began discussion of case studies prepared for each of the three to describe the real life approaches various Christian organizations were taking to needs and opportunities. The fourth day was given to workshops and discussion groups based on the experiences of the previous three days. Then the members of all three groups spent a day together sharing and learning what the other consultations had been doing. Then the members of the three consultations were mixed together to do a common case study. Finally the consultations moved on to the question of how to integrate what they learned at the conference with their individual ministries.

Provenance


The materials in this collection were given to the Archives of the Billy Graham Center by Wheaton and Seattle offices of the Wheaton ‘83 Conference in 1983-1985. The bulk of the files dealing solely with housekeeping and arrangements were not kept because of their low research value. The archivist retained core files dealing with program, participants, organization, evaluation and the aftermath of the meeting.

Meeting on conference flow and publications: Side 1: John Thompson discussing the plans and problems of the conference with at least two other people who are unidentified, but probably people who are helping to prepare the conference handbook and other publications such as Carol Plueddemann and Jane Nam (who only says a few words). Side 2: Continuation of the discussion on side 1, including a discussion of the personalities involved in planning the conference. About halfway through this side, this discussion ends and the tape records another meeting, which is recorded in midstream. This discussion is mainly about participants, observers, press and includes comparison with the 1980 Lausanne Consultation on World Evangelization. Participants seem to include David Howard, John Thompson, Bruce Nichols (?), although there are others
