Christian-Muslim Relation (CMR) Studies

MYS- CoTS Department of CMR

The CMR program is a missiological discipline that prepares evangelists, pastors, and teachers to specialize in the field of Christian Muslim Relations (CMR). The CMR program aims to equip church leaders for effective witness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ among Muslims in Ethiopia and beyond. Hence, it strives to offer an in-depth understanding of Islam in its Ethiopian, African, and Global contexts, in the way that it helps to engage in peaceful dialogue between Christian and Muslim communities and respond to theological questions raised by Muslim scholars and friends. The MYS- CoTS CMR program is offered both at the B.Th. and MA levels.
