Attention has been drawn to the social, economic and political dimensions of African Pentecostalism generally. However, the urbanisation of African Pentecostalism across the globe necessitates a critical engagement with the redrawing of the political map of World Christianity. It is therefore, in response to all these issues that the Redeemed Christian Bible College and the Department of Religious Studies of the University of Ibadan have jointly organised the 2016 International Conference titled, “ Globalisation of African Pentecostalism: The Changing face of World Christianity.”
