Abstract:

Pentecostalism is known as a movement which emphasizes evangelism through which it has grown around the world. It is less appreciated that the movement has a strong contextual desire to engage with different social settings. This article argues that Pentecostal growth occurs through a mix of translation and synthetic models of contextualization. Further, it suggests a pentecostal contribution to thinking on contextualization through the theme of hospitality and a study of two key passages in the book of Acts. Hence the article contributes something to both mission and Pentecostal studies, providing foundations for further study and growth.
