The inaugural address of Professor Nelus Niemandt, Head of the Department of Science of Religion and Missiology, took place on Wednesday, 9 May 2012 in the auditorium of UPís Groenkloof Campus.
The subject of his address was Missional leadership – entering a trialogue. According to Professor Niemand, “the trialogue is the discerning interaction between church, culture and biblical narrative – to seek, discover, understand, and share in what the Holy Spirit is up to in the close-to-the-ground particulars of engagement in, with, against and for the world.”
Professor Crewe, Vice-Principal, introduced Professor Niemand and Professor Johan Buitendag, Dean of the Faculty Theology, did the acknowledgments.
