The 2000 IAMS conference was held in South Africa, January 21 to 28, at the Hammanskraal Campus of the University of Pretoria (formerly St Peter's Seminary) about 60km north of Pretoria.
Over 200 missiologists gathered to discuss the theme "Reflecting Christ: Crucified and Living in a broken World."
