Welcome to the official website of the International Association of Catholic Missiologists (IACM).

The idea of founding an International Association of Catholic Missiologists grew up in the late 1990s in the faculties of Missiology at Gregorian and Urbaniana Pontifical Universities in Rome. The Association was officially established in 2000 during Great Jubilee year.

In these years, hundreds of Catholic missiologists involved in teaching missiology in different institutions of higher education as well as reflecting on the activity of evangelization, have taken part in the life of the Association. International conferences were held in Rome (twice), in Colombia, Poland, Philippines, Kenia and Thailand.

I very much hope and trust that we can continue working together and meet the expectations of the members of our Association, and the challenges of missionary theological reflection in the years ahead.

We will promote communication and exchange among ourselves, with ecclesial institutions and communities and with the groups of women and men of different faiths.

The website and other social communications will be vital for an international association like ours. I believe that our association has great potential for development in the field of missionary studies and theological reflection. We would like to have members that are conscious of participating in the association, and willing to actively contribute to it. New members are most welcomed.

May God bless you all in the task of continuing preaching and witnessing the Gospel of peace.

Yours in Jesus Christ

Gianni Criveller, PIME, President of the association
