Megan Meyers, adjunct professor of global arts and world religions at Fuller Seminary, lectures on the emergence of hip hop in African youth culture, the example of Ibraimo, a Christian rapper in Beira, Mozambique, and how local churches employ music for witness and discipleship.
The Fuller Missiology Lectures is an annual conference held by the School of Intercultural Studies. Its 2018 theme, “Global Arts and Witness in Multifaith Contexts,” explored the role of the arts—song, dance, drama, narratives, and visual arts—as a means for cross-cultural understanding and new opportunities for Christian witness in multifaith contexts. The conference was hosted by Roberta R. King, Professor of Communication and Ethnomusicology; William A. Dyrness, Senior Professor of Theology and Culture and Dean Emeritus; and Amos Yong, Professor of Theology and Mission and Director of the Center for Missiological Research.
