>> Welcome to the Jaffray Centre

The Jaffray Centre is an integration point for global initiatives at Ambrose University. A combination incubator/greenhouse of sorts where new ideas, collaborative initiatives and fresh ways of looking at God’s global mission are nurtured. The Jaffray Centre is made up of  people like you and me who want to engage the world around them in new and meaningful ways. Through collaborative project development, training and research projects, the Jaffray Centre seeks to rekindle and ignite a passion for God’s unending concern for people.

Up to 500 participants from across the globe representing leaders from various organizations—missions scholars, seminary presidents, professors, field practitioners as well as denominational leaders — will join together to explore ways to bring about Diaspora Church Growth in the practice of Diaspora Missiology.  GDF2015 will be held in Manila come March 24-27, 2015.  Find out more here.
