Key Words: hospitality, training, ministry, ministerial training, reconciliation, praxis, trust


In the biblical record, the act of hospitality is frequently a theological drama of the work of reconciliation. In light of a Christian understanding of knowledge as rooted in relationship and the centrality of reconciliation to the mandate of ministerial training, hospitable space is an essential element in effective ministerial training. Some specific praxis implications of hospitable ministerial training include building an atmosphere of trust, reciprocity, and modeling the character of God.
